This is a temporary, one-term, full-time post, from January to March 2020.

We are seeking an enthusiastic and able teacher to join a strong and lively P.E. department in this very successful co-education 11-18 school.

The post and the department

The PE department currently consists of five full-time teachers, assisted by teaching assistants and specialist coaches. This post comprises teaching P.E. and leading activities and fixtures throughout the school, across all three sections (Sixth Form, 7-11, and International school). 

Overall responsibility for P.E. across the whole school is held by Jonathan Richards, Director of Sport and Activities. He is assisted by the Head of PE for Years 7-11 day school and three other teachers.

The person

We are looking for a talented teacher who is genuinely committed to enabling every student to enjoy P.E. and supporting them to achieve their potential.  A positive and flexible approach and passion for P.E. are qualities we value highly. 

Necessary qualifications

All applicants will be expected to have a good degree in PE or a related subject and to be able to demonstrate their teaching ability at interview. The School does not insist that its staff possess a PGCE or equivalent formal teaching qualification, though many members of staff do have an appropriate qualification.  

All of the PE teachers are expected to drive the School’s minibuses (members of staff receive additional training as required). A clean driving licence is therefore essential. 

Further information

If you would like any further information at this stage, please feel free to email/telephone Alastair Barnett, Senior Vice Principal, on the main school number 01865 688600.


Applicants should complete the Teaching application form, and submit this, along with a full Curriculum Vitae and a covering letter to HR@doverbroecks.com and a signed copy sent to:

Helena Barron
333 Banbury Road
OX2 7PL 

The final date for submission of applications is Friday 6 December.
