Sir Graham Balfour Main Scale £25,714 - £36,238

Required from January 2022


We are looking to appoint a well-qualified, enthusiastic, talented and forward looking professional to complement our dynamic PE department, which is part of our vibrant PE and Expressive Arts Faculty.  The successful candidate will become part of a highly committed team and assist the whole Faculty in providing purposeful and high-quality PE teaching, effective learning and high standards of achievement for all students.  The successful applicant must be able to contribute to our programme of extra-curricular activities run throughout the week and to be able to teach GCSE and (in time) A Level theory PE. This post might suit a Newly or Recently Qualified Teacher.

At Sir Graham Balfour we offer:

  • A friendly, highly committed, well-motivated staff, who embrace willingly a culture of professional development.
  • An ever-growing reputation in the local community which has resulted in the school being consistently oversubscribed in an area where student rolls are falling.
  • A very positive climate for learning.
  • A first-rate learning environment. We are housed in buildings completed in 2002 and financed via a PFI initiative.
  • Innovative 14-19 collaboration and an increasing roll at KS5.
  • A commitment to inclusive practice.

Please note:

  • The school is committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all students and as such all applicants will be submitted for an enhanced DBS check.
  • Applications can only be accepted if submitted on the enclosed formal application form.
  • Two references will be required, one of which must be from your most recent employer.
  • We welcome applications regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity or religion.

Visits to the school are strongly recommended and can be arranged by contacting Mrs Vicki McKeen (details below).

If you require any further information, please access our website, www.sirgrahambalfour.co.uk or contact Mrs Vicki McKeen, Headteacher’s PA, on vmckeen@sirgrahambalfour.staffs.sch.uk or telephone 01785 223490.

The closing date for receipt of completed applications is 1.00pm on Friday 26th November 2021 and should be returned to the above email address.  Shortlisting will take place on Monday 29th November and successful applicants will be contacted by 3pm on the same day. If you have not been contacted by this date, please assume that you have not been successful on this occasion and accept our thanks for your interest in this post. 

Interviews will take place week commencing 29th November; will include a tour around the school, meetings with the PE Department, delivery of a lesson and interviews for the short-listed candidates.  Further details of the lesson will be sent out to the successful candidates.
