Hours: Full time

Salary: Main Pay Scale/Upper Pay Scale with TLR 3 for outstanding candidate

Contract: Permanent

Suitable for NQTs

Start Date: September 2020


We are looking for an enthusiastic teacher to join our PE department, which secures excellent results, has a vibrant fixtures schedule and is growing. We have recently restructured our curriculum so that PE, Food Technology and PSHE/student well-being sit within a single faculty. A new role has become available as a result and requires a candidate who has subject passion and wants to have an impact on the lives of young people. Your specialism should be in PE or Food. You will have excellent subject knowledge and be able to teach consistently good lessons. 

We have recently secured a considerable investment in terms of materials and new buildings, which are due to open late-February 2020. We hope to mirror the expansion of our accommodation with an increase in staffing over the coming months and years. We were recently inspected by Ofsted and secured a ‘good’ judgement. Our results have improved consecutively for the past three years and we anticipate that this trend will continue with our 2019-20 results.

We offer excellent training, exciting links with other school partners and provide opportunities for personal development. We have a vibrant work place with friendly, supportive colleagues and an excellent work/life balance. Both NQTs and experienced teachers are welcome to apply. For NQTs we offer a fully paid July start date, so you can familiarise yourself with our school and students before the summer break.

This is an exciting time to be joining Hornchurch High School; we have an innovative curriculum that ensures students experience a wide range of subjects and opportunities in and outside of the classroom, as well as a new pastoral structure to support our students and their families. We are an aged 11-16 mixed comprehensive with good pupils, supportive parents and an excellent staff.
