Sir William Perkins’s School is a high-performing independent girl’s school for approximately 600 students aged 11 – 18 years. The Head is both a member of HMC and GSA. It was founded in 1725 and is now on an attractive 12 acre site situated on the outskirts of Chertsey, a two minute walk from the railway station and very near to the junction of the M3 and M25.   

The School has excellent facilities, having benefited from an extensive and ongoing building and refurbishment programme including a new sixth form centre which opened in summer 2016.  

We are looking for an enthusiastic and well qualified Sports Science graduate to join our PE department. The successful candidate may have competed or coached at a high level in sport.  We are willing to negotiate on start date to secure the right candidate.   

Our ethos is to encourage participation and a love of exercise and sport. We want our PE curriculum to directly reflect the links between sport, fitness, health and wellbeing as well as challenging the students to fulfill their potential in competitive sports. We believe that this approach will enable our students to understand the benefits of sport and exercise which they will take through their School life and beyond.  

Candidates will be required to teach both a practical and A Level theory lesson as part of the interview process.  

The department is housed in a purpose-built Sports facility consisting of a Sports Hall, Fitness Suite, Dance Studio, 3 Netball, 9 Tennis courts, a purpose built Hockey pitch, a large Sports Field.   


Entrance to the School is by competitive examination and the School values its excellent academic reputation. The students are highly motivated and eager to learn. Significant emphasis is also placed on the broad and balanced curriculum, the wide-ranging co-curricular activities and the caring and supportive environment.   

The ISI regulatory compliance inspection in September 2016 recorded that all eight parts of the standard were met and our report in the Good Schools Guide 2016 describes our “Excellent Results achieved with a big dollop of humour, humanity and freedom of thought”. 

Visits to the school are warmly welcomed and encouraged.   

Please see attached Candidate Information Pack for further details on the role, organisation structure and the school.
