The Role

A rare opportunity has arisen to join our forward looking and thriving PE Department.

We are proud to declare that we do not suffer a gender pay gap amongst our excellent teaching and support staff, and offer excellent CPD opportunities with our school culture

If you are an outstanding teacher with vision and dynamism, join us teaching bright, motivated girls in a beautiful part of the country. You will be open to new ideas and want to be involved fully in new curriculum development as well as the wider aspects of the School. If you have an ability to teach Hockey to a high standard and have a passion for excellence, join us at TGGS for your next step.

Why Work With Us? 

The Staff Social Committee promotes social activities for staff with end-of-term socials at a variety of local venues and a regular Friday Club where staff meet for coffee, tea and biscuits. Staff meet for annual celebrations such as Christmas mulled wine, our carol service, concerts, plays and productions; there are end-of-term staff lunches. 

There is a strong House Culture and all new members of staff are assigned to one of our five Houses. You will then be encouraged by your House to take part in the wide variety of house activities including staff vs students sports, fundraising activities, Sponsored Walk and the House Shout. You will also be in charge of organising house sport events.

The new Sports Hall provides a fitness suite, with £50,000 of machines, and is free for staff use. 

Applications are welcome from both experienced and newly qualified teachers. 

Life in Torquay

Torquay’s position makes it convenient for the outstanding natural beauty of both Dartmoor and the South Devon coast. The beaches of the county are some of the best of the country and you can get away from the stresses of life by walking on the rugged moors. The beautiful cathedral city of Exeter is on your doorstep as is the City of Plymouth with its rich maritime history. Both of these have excellent new shopping centres. There is a unanimous feeling among staff that the area is a wonderful place to bring up children.
