The Charter School East Dulwich serves a diverse community in South East London.  Our students are from a truly comprehensive range of socio-economic, racial, religious and gender backgrounds.  We strive to be a community where difference is respected, valued and demonstrated in daily life through our core values of Curiosity, Creativity, Care and Courage. As an inclusive and diverse community, we value and actively encourage applications from staff from sectors of society that are currently under-represented in the education sector.

The Head of PE will lead a team of four PE teachers delivering a curriculum designed to promote sporting excellence and good character.

As part of The Charter Schools Educational Trust, we are founded on the conviction that all children deserve the opportunity to succeed, whatever their start in life or personal circumstances. We are a school at the heart of our community: a place where children walk to school together and where friendships, between students and between parents, grow stronger as a result of daily contact in and outside of the classroom. We teach our students to be curious, creative, confident, courageous and caring. They will leave us fully able to participate in our democratic society and prepared to meet the challenges and to harvest the opportunities of life in the 21st century

The Charter School East Dulwich is a special place to work. We are committed to finding teachers with the energy, enthusiasm and expertise to inspire our students and enliven our community. As Head of PE you would work with an award winning team in one of the most successful schools in Southwark.
