We are looking to appoint an 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. This post would suit any well-qualified and ambitious teacher of PE, including newly qualified teachers (ECTs).


 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:


  • All applicants will be submitted for an enhanced DBS check.
  • Applications will 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.  In the case of teachers, one reference must come from your most recent headteacher.
  • Once a written reference has been received, we will contact the referee by telephone to confirm the provenance of that reference.
  • If shortlisted, online searches will be carried out, in order to help identify any incidents or issues that have happened and are publicly available online, which the school might want to explore with the applicant at interview.
  • If shortlisted, we will request a portrait photo of you to attach to your file and to help confirm your identity.
  • If appointed, the successful applicant will be informed that the appointment is subject to satisfactory completion of the following checks: the right to work in the UK, qualifications requirements, satisfactory DBS Enhanced Disclosure, the Criminal Record Self-Declaration Form, teacher prohibition and barred list checks, pre-employment medical screening and satisfactory references (if not already received).


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, or contact Mrs Vicki McKeen, Headteacher’s PA, on or telephone 01785 223490.


The closing date for receipt of completed applications is 1.30pm on Friday 12th July 2024 and should be returned to the above email address.  Shortlisting will take place on this date and successful applicants will be contacted by 5pm Friday 12th July 2024. 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 15th July 2024 and 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.
