Teacher of PE 

Due to the continuing development and expansion of this ‘outstanding’ School (OFSTED July 2015),  Gravesend Grammar School (GGS) are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and suitably qualified PE teacher from September 2020, who will enjoy working in a school that values and delivers excellent Physical Education.

  • Supportive and enthusiastic colleagues, and a positive working environment
