GFS is a new, ambitious school model based on what we know excellent schools do. Joining the school team is a superb opportunity for an ambitious and motivated PE teacher who wants to make a lasting difference to the communities they serve. 

At GFS we believe in the centrality of subject disciplines to school life. We do not blend or merge subjects and we invest a lot in staff training and development.  We have an obsession with sport and want someone who can drive forwards the provision of PE and sport at GFS and who understands the transformational role this can play in a person’s life. As a small school we are looking for a candidate who combines a passion for high quality extra-curricular sport with outstanding provision for academic PE lessons. We value extra-curricular sport and are restless in wanting to nurture individuals and teams to compete and tour nationally and internationally. 

Alongside working in a school that values the importance of Physical Education as an academic discipline you will also receive high-quality weekly training and have access to world-class development opportunities through our partnerships with a wide range of schools and universities. You will work with a strong Head of Department who will provide you with guidance and advice and you will receive weekly coaching and feedback to help progress your career.

This role represents a unique opportunity to join a still newly formed school with the highest expectations for pupils and staff, and to help shape the school’s continued growth as we move towards our second set of GCSE results in 2018.
