This is a fantastic opportunity for a well-qualified PE Teacher to deliver the curriculum and to take games afternoons for pupils in years 7 – 11. The post would suit either an established teacher with the skills and experience to develop the department, or an ambitious person who is relatively new to teaching and who can see potential in making their mark in this new school. You will be working alongside like-minded colleagues and be guided by supportive, experienced managers.
Due to limited pupil numbers in the first two years as we concentrate on a two-form entry into years 7 and 9 it is likely that the candidate will teach a reduced timetable, therefore the ability to teach a second subject or contribute towards another discipline is necessary for this to be a full-time post. The School is co-educational and therefore we will be appointing a male and a female PE teacher.
Kensington Park School is split over two sites to the north and south of Kensington Gardens. The Sixth Form, in Queen’s Gate, opened its doors to pupils last year. We are now looking to staff the main school which is situated a short walk east of Notting Hill, in Bayswater, for boys and girls aged 11–16. The School opens this September and we have already had a large number of enquiries from prospective parents. Although we are a new school, we have been fortunate to attract a team that has a vast wealth of experience managing HMC schools. They have been excited by the chance to create something new and to build on all the best elements of the schools they come from.
With our wonderful central London location and a wealth of sports and cultural centres in our neighbourhood we will be able to integrate world-class co-curricular experiences into the timetable. We have already started to develop partnerships with local facilities and will have access to Hyde Park for netball, tennis and football, and to a local sports centre for swimming and fitness, and there is even an indoor ice rink just around the corner!
Salary is commensurate with the post and the possibility of single accommodation is available at a subsidised rate, which will involve some contribution to boarding duties.
