Opportunity for an exceptional teacher to be a middle leader, shaping a brand new Ark secondary school in Barnet


In September 2019, Ark Pioneer, a non-selective secondary school, opened its doors to our brand new building in Barnet and welcomed in our first year 7. By the time these pupils reach year 13, we’ll have over a thousand pupils. Our school is focused on delivering a standard of education matching the very best schools in the country. Our vision is that every pupil leaves Ark Pioneer with real options, be it embarking on the university course of their choice or starting out in their chosen career.

We are recruiting a team of exceptional staff to achieve our vision and work together to create a genuinely outstanding school. The new Lead Teacher of PE will shape our provision in that area through to Key Stage 5 and will recruit and develop an exceptional team of teachers.

Middle leadership experience will not be a determining factor. We will develop every teacher and leader that joins our team, providing one-to-one support, coaching and mentoring and access to extensive network training.


The ideal candidate will

·         Have a strong sporting background, with good A Levels or equivalent, and a good degree

·         Combine subject matter expertise with a passion for teaching PE

·         Balance developing elite athletes with inclusion for all pupils in sports enrichments, teams and competitions

·         Have the commitment, skills and character required to build a successful department

·         Share the Ark Pioneer vision and be aligned with the six pillars underpinning it

·         Value and support practices driving continued progress across the network of Ark schools.
