Charter Academy is one of the most improved schools in the country, after undergoing a transformation that was recently praised by former Prime Minister David Cameron. Join our school to help us shape brighter futures for our students.


We are looking to recruit a PE Teacher for a fixed term maternity cover period to:


·         Plan and teach well-structured lessons that are aligned to the agreed curriculum and teach students the importance of physical activity while developing motor and fitness skills

·         Contribute to the promotion of an active, healthy lifestyle and any related school-wide initiatives

·         Facilitate and support school and external sport events and competitions


PE at Charter Academy is run by a small but passionate team who strive to encourage student’s health, fitness and well-being.  The department has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and we rely heavily on collaboration and mutual support.  All planning, lessons and resources are shared amongst the staff.  Students who choose to study PE at KS4 follow a preparatory course in Year 9 which helps students consolidate some key subject areas prior to moving on to either the GCSE PE syllabus or the NCFE Health and Fitness course for years 10 and 11.


The PE curriculum for KS3 offers students a broad experience of different activities, making use of the academies facilities including 2 large indoor areas, fitness suite, swimming pool and outdoor areas.


Before joining Ark in 2009, just 21% of students achieved 5 A*-C at GCSE (including English and maths), the success rate now sits at 83%.  This would not have been possible without great teachers, which is why we offer the best training and support for all of our staff at every stage of their career.


Could you make a REAL difference?

Become part of the Ark Charter community and work alongside our dedicated team of teachers, support staff and senior leaders to raise the expectations of a community, and spark a passion for learning in our young people which will last them a lifetime.


Our teachers work hard every day to inspire each and every student to develop skills which will help them to achieve their full potential - both in the classroom and beyond. We pride ourselves in recognising hard work and rewarding it accordingly, providing opportunities for professional and personal growth in school and across the wider Ark network.


As well as professional development, we also take the wellbeing of our staff seriously, as we recognise that teaching can be a challenging profession. That’s why we give our staff more periods for planning, preparation and marking than in Local Authority schools, ensure most meetings take place during our working day to protect our valuable free time, and receive regular rewards and recognition from the Principal for our effort and enthusiasm.


We would love you to visit our school, and meet the students and staff which make the Ark Charter community such a welcoming place to work – contact or call 023 9282 4204 to arrange your visit.
