Ben Holden

Head of Physical Education, High Tunstall College of Science

Ben HoldenI can offer support with:

Age range: 11-16

I have worked at High Tunstall College of Science since 2008, during my time at High Tunstall I have experience working within a variety of roles such as programme leader (curriculum design and delivery), progress leader (using data to support student attainment), ICT across the curriculum before being appointed as faculty leader in 2013. Since taking on this role, I have ensured that faculty results at GCSE PE have remained at least 15% above national average at both A*-A and A*-C grades. In addition, I have overseen the development of our hugely successful Advanced Performance Programme that supports our most talented athletes utilising a local further education provider whilst offering bespoke guidance to allow each student to achieve their sporting potential.

Whilst in post as Head of Physical Education, I have also worked closely and extensively with our feeder Primary schools to improve Primary Physical Education provision. This has been achieved through the development of a unique partnership that includes Primary Physical Education specific CPD, sharing of best practice and KS1 & KS2 PE curriculum design and assessment support. In addition, I have also introduced a Junior Advanced Performance Programme to increase the sporting opportunities for the Partner Primary’s most talented KS2 athletes whilst also acting as an invaluable transition tool for our college.

I possess a great passion for Sport and Physical Education and fully believe that it should be utilised in each educational establishment as a vehicle to drive attainment and increase aspirations of young people.
