The Role

Higham Lane School is delighted to welcome applications for the post of Permanent Teacher of Girls PE.

Higham Lane is a large, 11-18 comprehensive academy with Aspiring Teaching School status, set on an attractive site on the Warwickshire-Leicestershire border, easily accessible due to excellent road, rail and bus connections. Achievement in all its forms: artistic, academic, social, cultural, sporting and intellectual is equally valued in our diverse five-year, knowledge-rich curriculum. We are enormously proud to have performed in the top 15% (yes that’s top 15%!) of schools in England for student progress at GCSE in 2018 and to have achieved impressive A level results in our high-performing Sixth Form.

Why work for Higham Lane School?

  • we empower teachers to teach and students to learn! Students’ behaviour is excellent.
  • our SLT and Progress Leaders regularly visit lessons, support teachers and uphold our ethos.
  • we are committed to reducing teacher workload by always looking to streamline our ways of working, for example, by making greater use of whole-class feedback, rather than pointlessly marking excessively.
  • we value our staff as experts in their subjects.
  • staff wellbeing is very important to us. We care about each other.
  • we ensure a work-life balance in the way we organise our meetings and inset days and ensure emails are used sparingly.
  • we support staff to look after themselves, for example through our health awareness events.
  • our regular CPD is second to none and highly-regarded by our staff.
  • we provide bespoke career stage training such as NPQSL, NPQML and NPQH as well as OLEVI programmes for improving and outstanding teachers.
  • we are actively leading school-to-school support within our local area.
  • we get on well together and celebrate our many achievements in a range of social events!


Key Requirements

Applications are invited from suitably-qualified, experienced and enthusiastic teachers to teach core PE to girls in Key Stages 3 and 4 and GCSE PE or Cambridge Nationals in Sport to Key Stage 4. The ability to teach A-level PE to Key Stage 5 level would also be desirable, but is not essential, and would not prevent suitable candidates from being shortlisted, if they meet the person specification.
