The Godolphin and Latymer School is one of the country’s leading independent day schools for girls, located on a six acre site in Hammersmith, London.  The School’s facilities are excellent, making it an exciting place to learn and work.  The students at Godolphin and Latymer receive unrivalled academic and pastoral support and outstanding examination results are achieved.

Both curricular Physical Education and extra-curricular sports are highly popular, taught by experienced teachers and specialist coaches.  Our pupils are outstanding achievers, regularly competing at regional and national levels.  We offer a wide variety of sports, with Hockey and Netball being our largest, having gone from strength to strength over recent years.

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a passionate, experienced and well-qualified Teacher of PE to join our large and thriving PE department as a highly motivated all-rounder.  The appointed candidate must be able to teach and coach a wide variety of sports.  A specialism in Hockey is essential.  The successful applicant will also be required to commit fully to the School’s extensive extra-curricular programme, which offers a vast range of activities.
This is a fixed purpose (maternity cover) contract of employment, which will commence on 1 September 2022 and will terminate on the working day prior to the permanent post-holder returning to the school.

The salary will be commensurate with the post and will depend upon qualifications and experience.

Accommodation may be available for new staff in a local six-unit property.

Fully completed application forms must be returned to by noon on the closing date.  Please note that applications must be made on the school’s application form.  Neither CVs nor late applications will be accepted.

The closing date for applications is noon on Tuesday 3 May 2022.

It is anticipated that interviews will take place during the week commencing Monday 9 May 2022.

The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment and responsibility.  Applicants will be required to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service.

All staff working in the School during the school day will have contact with children and will therefore be in regulated activity.  As a teaching member of staff you will be working directly with, and be responsible for, the children that you teach. You are also likely to have contact with other pupils on a regular basis which may include specific pastoral or other responsibilities for pupils whom you do not teach.

The post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and the School is therefore permitted to ask job applicants to declare all convictions and cautions (including those which are “spent” unless they are “protected” under the DBS filtering rules) in order to assess their suitability to work with children.
