This is an opportunity for two outstanding, motivated and enthusiastic PE and Sport Teachers to join our successful and thriving sports department. We are looking for one Lacrosse specialist and one all-round PE/Sport Teacher who can offer at least two sports out of Lacrosse, Netball and Hockey to a high standard. As current Lacrosse National Champions competing at the top level of performance, sport is very important to us but we also pride ourselves on our great depth in team sport representation. With eighteen lacrosse teams and thirty netball teams, we have one of the largest competitive girls’ sport structures in the Country and we pride ourselves on our pupils’ passion and commitment for their sport.
Benenden offers a huge variety of sport and exercise activities, with PE being compulsory throughout the school. Tennis also features as a main sport, with Hockey developing since the opening of our international standard all-weather pitch in September 2016. The successful candidate will teach years 7-13 across our diverse and varied curriculum. The ability to teach GCSE/A-Level PE would be a distinct advantage.
Benenden offers its own pay structure, responsibility allowances and benefits. All staff joining the school are eligible to apply for on-site accommodation.
