‘The values on which all of the school’s work is based are very clear. You believe that students should be happy at the school’ (Ofsted, 2013).

Lawrence Sheriff School is a boys’ grammar school of approximately 900 students, over 300 of whom are in the sixth form. We believe that much of our success - including our consistently high Ofsted grading and our high rankings in DFE performance tables - can be directly linked to our emphasis upon LSS being a happy place to work for both pupils and staff.

The 2013 Ofsted report goes on to say that ‘the school is a harmonious community where students with different needs can thrive; achieve highly in their academic work and enjoy a wide range of enrichment opportunities.’ These comments sum up the distinctive ethos and values of the school.

The school is seeking to appoint an energetic and committed teacher to oversee the school’s examined and non-examined provision in physical education from Years 7-13 and to build on the already strong participation of students in sport and fitness. The successful candidate would lead an immediate review of the PE curriculum in key stages 3-5 to ensure high quality curricular and extra-curricular provision within a contemporary school curriculum.  Hence the person appointed will be required to show vision, imagination and the ability to lead a programme of change.  Excellent leadership skills and the ability to work as part of a high performing team will also be an essential requirement for the post.  

This is a very special opportunity to further your career within an outstanding school and Lawrence Sheriff School is committed to the professional development of its entire staff through varied and interesting opportunities to enhance their practice.
