The Academy is seeking an enthusiastic Teacher of PE to join our successful PE department.

Dollar Academy is a leading 5-18 co-educational HMC independent school of around 1350 pupils, set in a beautiful location in central Scotland, within easy reach of the university cities of Stirling, Edinburgh, Glasgow and St Andrews.

Dollar also has one of the strongest sporting programmes in Scotland. The principal team sports offered are rugby, hockey, cricket, athletics and tennis. All members of the Physical Education department contribute to the co-curricular programme, requiring them to run after-school practices and to work on Saturday mornings, and potentially at other times.
