Heathfield is an all girls’ boarding and day school, providing our girls with a first class education in beautiful surroundings, with a level of continuity of care and pastoral support, which we believe, is unrivalled. We offer opportunities that would otherwise be difficult for girls to access, with a wide weekend programme designed to stimulate our girls and to provide them with a release for both their physical and creative energies.
Set in 35 acres, the School is 50 minutes from London by train, 25 minutes from Heathrow and 20 minutes from Reading by car. The facilities and grounds are what one would expect from a School of this standing.
Due to a Senior Leadership promotion the School is seeking to appoint to this new enhanced position of Director of Sport an outstanding person to provide strategic leadership in all areas of school sports. The successful applicant will be experienced, ambitious and have proven expertise in coaching, pupil motivation and managing staff.
The Director of Sport will take overall responsibility for all sports at Heathfield, setting the tone and expectation, encouraging a culture where pupils can enjoy physical activity both in competitive and friendly sports and develop a healthy lifestyle.
