Purpose of Job/Key objectives 

We require for September 2017 a well-qualified and enthusiastic teacher of Physical Education, to join our thriving department to teach KS3, KS4 and KS5. You should have excellent interpersonal skills combined with the ability to motivate students, whilst retaining a sense of fun. Physical Education is a popular subject throughout the school and a very popular option at GCSE level. The post would be suitable for an NQT or a more experienced teacher. 

Physical Education Department

At the senior school we offer our students a wide range of opportunities within their Physical Education and Games lessons. Our aim is to give the students the skills and fitness to take part in physical activity, and more importantly a lifelong love of sport for when they move on. Because of this we try to vary the activities so that they cover traditional sports such as hockey and netball, but also net and wall games, striking and fielding games, athletics and gymnastics. 

We hope that this approach successfully gives a balance between a healthy lifestyle and competitive sport. Our inclusive House system is designed to give all of our student’s opportunities, as is our policy on afterschool clubs. Many of our students also experience inter-school matches in a plethora of activities. 

Our Year 7-9 students receive a weekly double lesson of Physical Education. This is mostly taught in co-educational groups. Due to the excellent facilities available to us (mostly off site), we also offer tennis, badminton and squash over the three years. 

All students across the Senior School receive a triple Games lesson (1 hour 45 minutes), which takes place in the afternoon, except for our Year 7 students. During these lessons we deliver most of the traditional team games, as well as some racket sports. We also use this time to run external fixtures or our extensive inter-school sports fixtures.

If you feel that you have the qualities we are looking for and you are determined to achieve the absolute best for the students that you teach, we would be delighted to hear from you.
