Junior School PE Teacher
From September 2019
Applications are welcomed from enthusiastic, experienced and well-qualified Teachers of PE to help build upon the very high standards of this lively and highly successful department and to teach and promote the subject across the whole Junior School.
The ability to coach gymnastics or netball to a high standard would be an advantage. Applications from NQTs are welcomed.
As a Junior School Teacher, you will participate fully in school life, contributing to the continuing success and happy atmosphere at our over-subscribed school. There may be the possibility of additional responsibility depending on the strength of your skills and experience.
PE at Putney High School
Throughout the Junior School, girls are encouraged to participate in a range of inclusive extension activities. From Year 3 upwards, girls can also try for places in school teams and take part in fixtures and tournaments against other London schools, as well as in the GDST netball, gymnastics, cross country, athletics, cricket and swimming rallies. The girls and staff at Putney High are committed to training and competing before, during and after school, including weekends.
The PE department strives to give every Year 3-6 girl, who would like to play sport competitively, the opportunity to compete either against other schools as well as at Interhouse events. There are teams for all ability levels in a huge range of sports, our most competitive being Gymnastics and Netball.
