  • Director of Sport (Head of PE/PSHE Faculty) - September 2022

    Director of Sport  (Head of PE/PSHE Faculty)

    1 September 2022, Permanent, MPS/UPS + TLR2b

     The Trustees of Newport Girls' High School Academy Trust are delighted to invite applications for the position of Director of Sport (Head of PE/PSHE faculty) at this outstanding (2019) girls' school. NGHS places huge emphasis on Staff Well-being and is a DFE Flexible Working Ambassador School. NGHS is still a small-medium sized school, but the school roll is growing rapidly and our new extension (dining room and STEM-subject classrooms) has just been opened. We are looking to invest in further PE facilities in the coming years and the successful postholder will have the opportunity to shape a vision for PE at NGHS for the next 5+ years. Skills, interest and a commitment to all aspects of girls' PE is required for this role, ideally with local knowledge of schools, teams and competitions to raise the profile of sport still further. The post will involve some line-management responsibility but is also a whole-school role and a great springboard for future development at Assistant Head level and beyond. The new postholder will be supported fully by an experienced and high-profile SLT as well benefitting from being part of a fantastic team of colleagues, both teaching and non-teaching. The post will ideally suit an enthusiastic, committed and dedicated teacher of PE looking for first promotion or an experienced Head of Faculty/Second in Faculty looking for a wider school role. The ability to relate well to our students and provide instruction and coaching to elite groups as well as those less keen on sport is essential! 

    Further information about the school and the post are available in the application pack below.

    NGHS is fully committed to two hours of PE teaching in each year group (Y7-11) and one hour in the sixth form for all students. Student well-being and mental health support is at the heart of the school and NGHS has won a number of awards in the past three years for its approach to this. PSHE teaching occurs weekly in a timetabled session with rotational staffing in the upper years to ensure specialists deliver appropriate content. The school was an early adopter DFE school for the new SRE curriculum. The school is heavily oversubscribed.

    If you have any questions about the post, please contact the Headteacher, Michael Scott via headteacher@nghs.org.uk. A virtual tour of the school (excluding the new build) is available here and a discussion via Teams with Mr Scott is possible prior to application.

    We are very excited by this new opportunity and look forward to your application.
