Teachers of English, Maths and ICT

We are looking to appoint talented and enthusiastic teachers of English, Maths and ICT to join our high-performing and extremely collegiate teams. You will work alongside the Heads of Department and other experienced staff to deliver these subjects across a range of abilities and age groups. Ideally, successful candidates would have experience across all three key stages, although we would also welcome applications from teachers who would happily challenge themselves to deliver our curriculum to age groups they have yet to come across.

Teacher of PE

We are looking to recruit a highly motivated, inspirational teacher of PE who is looking to join our extremely successful PE team. You will work alongside the Head of Department and other experienced PE staff members to deliver our broad and varied curriculum, whilst also playing a major role in supporting our extra-curricular programme.

In order to provide a breadth of courses that meets the needs of the wide ability ranges that attend St John’s, we offer BTEC Sport Levels 2 & 3, alongside GCSE and A Level PE. Ideally the successful candidate would already have experience of teaching at least some of these courses and would be more than able to play their part in delivering this wide curriculum offer.

Physical Education

Graduate and Registered Teacher Programme

This is an exciting opportunity for a dynamic and highly committed graduate looking to undertake teacher training and pursue a career in teaching physical education.

The successful candidate will have a sports related degree, be educated to A-Level standard and have significant sports coaching and/or teaching experience. Whilst completing the Graduate and Registered Teacher Programme through our registered training provider, you will have the opportunity to work alongside supportive and experienced practitioners within an outstanding PE department. In recent years PE has achieved consistently strong academic results in GCSE, BTec and A-Level qualifications, whilst offering an extensive extra-curricular sports programme. This has led to numerous successes in district, county and national competitions across a range of sports.

Initially teaching a reduced timetable that focuses on practical KS3 PE, you would receive mentoring and additional support to develop your skills as a practitioner. Teaching commitments would progressively increase throughout the training programme to eventually incorporate theory classes. The successful candidate would be expected to make a significant contribution to extra-curricular sport at St John’s, leading sports clubs and teams on a weekly basis. There is also the possibility to continue teaching at St John’s and undertake your NQT year (subject to interview and assuming availability of a relevant teaching post).
