Contract Basis:  Full Time Permanent role required for September 2024

We are looking to appoint a permanent full time Teacher of PE, teaching primarily boys PE across KS3 and KS4.  

We are a large faculty of friendly, enthusiastic and committed PE teachers who all share a very similar vision about the purpose and ethos of PE in a secondary school. We strive to have enjoyable and engaging lessons that encourage as many students as possible to continue with their learning and development outside of lesson time.

We offer a wide range of extra-curricular clubs that are open to all students and are extremely well attended; many students go on to represent our school in competitive fixtures. The person appointed would be keen to contribute to this extra-curricular provision and ideally would be able to complement and improve an already strong wider curriculum offer. We would welcome applications from candidates who have a particular interest in rugby.

Farlingaye High School is a popular and successful school, located in Woodbridge, a pleasant market town situated on the River Deben in Suffolk and just 7 miles from Ipswich. We are a creative school with excellent resources, lovely students and great results. Our most recent Ofsted report graded us Good with Outstanding features.

We are part of East Anglian Schools Trust (EAST) alongside Kesgrave High School, Bungay High School and Castle East School. The Trust have also recently welcomed Aldeburgh, Easton, Leiston, Saxmundham and Wickham Market primary schools. We are a Teaching School Hub partner, which allows us to improve teaching and learning on a continuous basis. We are committed to providing excellent staff opportunities through developing and promoting our staff and offering an excellent CPD and support programme for new staff. We are also extremely pleased to have launched our own teacher training provider: EAST SCITT. This allows us to award QTS and also QTS + PGCE Programmes within both Primary and Secondary schools.

Potential candidates are encouraged to visit the school, and will be warmly welcomed. As we are about to enter our Easter holiday period, requests for visits should be made for week commencing Monday, 15th April and by  Friday, 19th April at the latest. Please contact Linda Marsh, HR Manager. In addition candidates can contact Peter Smith, Headteacher over the Easter break. Please refer to the attached job booklet for contact details.

Should you wish to discuss the job role in further detail, please contact Peter Smith, Headteacher or Kate Alexander, Head of Faculty.

Please note: only applications submitted via the school’s on-line recruitment process will be considered.  

Closing Date: 9.00 am on Tuesday, 23rd April 2024

Interview Date:  Tuesday, 30th April 2024
