We are looking for an inspirational teacher of PE to join a thriving department in our high performing school.

The department has a clear and very well resourced curriculum that stretches across Key Stages 3, 4 and 5. We use technology to enhance learning through the use of Google for Education and chromebooks and we are renowned for placing a high value on staff wellbeing and professional development at all levels.   


Our school campus is unique and we have the use of extensive facilities. These include the dual use of the Park Sports Centre including a 5 badminton court sports hall and sprung floor dance studio. We also have a gymnasium, netball courts, 9 tennis courts, 3 football pitches, a rugby pitch, cricket wicket, athletics track and a dedicated GCSE and A level PE classroom.

We wish to find a teacher who is rich in their knowledge of Physical Education and Sport, and committed to developing their curriculum expertise in a way that meets the needs of our school’s context.

PE is part of a family of subjects in a school where our values are Everyone Learning and Everyone Caring. The school fosters an exceptional atmosphere of support and teamwork, placing a strong emphasis on wellbeing. As part of our school, you will be supported through:


  • An existing, rigorous and well resourced curriculum and team that work together to develop expertise in delivery

  • Working in the ambitious atmosphere of a school that has enjoyed being one the most improved schools in Oxfordshire and wants to progress further through sustainable and person-centred measures for improvement.


We are renowned for placing a high value on staff wellbeing and professional development at all levels.

Education has the power to change lives, communities and society for the better. At RLT we believe that we can achieve more for our pupils, trainees, staff and communities by working together rather than alone. Schools in RLT are united by a common belief in the benefits of working together, and by our commitment to shared principles.


OUR VISION is for our schools and SCITT to improve rapidly, continuously and sustainably: to be better faster together.

OUR ‘WHY?’ is that children and young people ‘only get one go’ in school and therefore as part of RLT we aim to ensure the best possible ‘go’ for our pupils.

OUR ‘HOW?’ is through the highest support and challenge for our schools and each other, underpinned by our principles.
