As the new Orsett Heath Academy continues to grow, we are looking to recruit an ambitious PE Teacher to help us shape the school prior to our move into our new £27m building in September 2022. We are looking for an enthusiastic and talented teacher at any stage of their career who wants to contribute to a once in a career opportunity to help us grow a school with a specialism in PE from Year 7 and to help shape our Girls' PE offer in particular.

The successful candidate will have excellent subject knowledge and will be able to foster enthusiasm and enjoyment of the subject with a clear focus on student achievement. Applicants will be determined to achieve the highest standards for the students that they teach and will be keen to be part of a new and growing school. If you have energy and passion for your subject and would like to join a unique school with a dynamic and collaborative team, then we look forward to hearing from you.

Why Orsett Heath Academy?

Orsett Heath Academy opened in 2020 with 120 Year 7 Pupils. We are oversubscribed in both Year 7 and for the September 2021 intake. In 2022 we will move to our new school building. The school is currently located in purpose built accommodation at Thurrock Rugby Club, adjacent to the final school site. The school will increase its intake in 2022 to 240 and grow to be a large community 11-16 school with 1200 pupils. We have assembled a highly motivated and able staff team and are looking for people who share our values to help us grow. We take up to 10% of our pupils based upon sports aptitude.
