The Opportunity

Do you believe that all children, no matter their background, needs or aptitudes are entitled to learn the best that has been thought and said? 

We are seeking to appoint a teacher of Physical Education with a passion for ensuring that all children have access to a high-quality curriculum. 

You will join us able to teach across the full age and ability range of the school and will work within a welcoming and supportive faculty.

We welcome applications from both early career teachers and experienced teachers looking for a new role. 

About Us

Noel-Baker Academy is a rapidly improving school centred around a dedicated team of people who are working together to achieve our mission of delivering an unashamedly academic and knowledge-rich education to our students.

Everything we do at NBA is underpinned by our passionate belief that outstanding schooling is the right of every child, and a determination that such a vision is achievable. We believe in and aspire to provide an inclusive education for all. That is, high expectations of and for all pupils, an insistence on excellent behaviour, equal access to an academically rigorous curriculum taught by highly skilled subject specialists and a sharp focus on high value enrichment opportunities that will enable all students to excel. We will never accept that family background, socio-economic circumstances or prior attainment will inevitably limit young people’s potential and so the profile of our intake will always be a reason for our provision, and never an excuse for our outcomes.

Our students are entitled to the very best breadth and depth of provision, and we are unapologetically ambitious for every student, no matter what their background, prior attainment or needs. If you share our outlook, click apply to find out more.
