Cranleigh seeks to appoint, for September 2022, a well-qualified, visionary and enthusiastic teacher to lead Academic PE. This post would provide an excellent opportunity for an experienced and innovative teacher with a proven track-record in public examinations at both GCSE and A-level. The role will involve leading the teaching and learning of Academic PE at all levels at the school; the candidate must offer PE to A-Level and some experience of the BTEC Sport course is preferable. In addition to this academic leadership position, the successful candidate will also have the opportunity to play a full role in the life of a very busy and successful school.

We are looking for an energetic character who can effectively communicate their enthusiasm for PE and bring some humour as well as subject knowledge with them. The successful candidate will have an excellent knowledge of, and a real enthusiasm for PE and is likely to hold a good honours degree in PE (or related subject). He/she will be self-motivated and will relish the challenge presented by being part of a rapidly growing Department. A commitment to students, the department and the wider life of the School, plus a firm grasp of curricular developments are important as are empathy, being well-organised, a sense of humour and the ability to enhance the department’s delivery and development of PE.

The successful candidate will be expected to get involved in all aspects of this busy boarding school (which would normally include one evening duty per week), including acting as a tutor to a group of students within a Boarding House. All teachers are expected to contribute to the School’s co-curricular programme and co-curricular activities alongside their academic responsibilities. An ability to coach netball and/or hockey to A team level would be desirable.
