We are looking for a passionate, enthusiastic and motivated Male Teacher of PE to join our PE department in September 2020.  We are seeking an individual who enjoys working with young people, who will inspire and engage our students and believes it is a privilege to be a part of their journey into adulthood, whilst understanding the challenges faced by young people growing up in today's world.  This individual will be involved in extra-curricular activities ensuring the opportunities offered to our students are full inclusive.   The successful candidate will be creative, dynamic and willing to embrace any challenges, this role may bring, head on.
