St. George’s the British International School, Cologne, Germany.

St. George’s School seeks a well-qualified professional to lead the Physical Education department in our flourishing Secondary School, to start in August 2019.

The School

Serving the international community in Cologne for almost 30 years, St. George’s School combines an enriching curriculum with family orientated care. The school has grown from small beginnings into a thriving community of over 800 pupils, aged from 2-18 and representing more than 40 nationalities. 

The National Curriculum is taught throughout the school, and we offer the IB Diploma in our Sixth form. 

One of a group of three schools located across Germany, St. George’s offers the successful applicant an exciting range of opportunities for professional development and growth across the school group. 

The Location

Located on a new, purpose built campus on the outskirts of Cologne, St. George’s School enjoys direct transport links to the city centre, as well as to the greater area of Cologne-Bonn. 

Germany’s fourth largest city, Cologne is a dynamic and vibrant cultural centre, with a large and diverse international community. Situated in the heart of Europe, Cologne offers a high standard of living, as well as numerous opportunities for travel and cultural discovery. 

Cologne-Bonn airport is located only 20km from the school, with many daily flights to the UK, and a high speed rail service connects Cologne to London, via Brussels. 

The Role

We are seeking to appoint an experienced professional to shape the further development of our Physical Education department. 

The successful applicant will be a dynamic teacher with previous leadership experience. We are looking for the right balance between experience, enthusiasm and a passion for teaching and learning which will inspire students and colleagues. 

Physical Education is a popular option at IGCSE, and all members of the department contribute to teaching at this level. We have recently introduced the International Baccalaureate Diploma course in Sport and Health Science as an option to our students in Sixth Form, and seek to develop this further over the coming years. Teaching at this level is shared between the Physical Education and Biology departments. 

Please note that a teaching degree or post-graduate diploma (B.Ed, M.Ed, PGCE or equivalent) is required for this role. Unqualified teachers, or those only holding TEFL or ESOL qualifications, will not be considered. 

Please download our application pack for detailed information.

Only applications made through the TES online portal will be considered. 

We require additional information for your application, please upload the following via the supporting documents link:

1.  Your passport information page or ID card

2.  A copy of your degree certificate and teaching qualification.

Applications should be submitted by the closing date of Sunday, 21st April. The school reserves the right to contact outstanding applicants in advance of this deadline.

St. George’s is committed to safeguarding and protecting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment. The successful applicant will therefore be subject to enhanced background checks.
