We are looking for to appoint a Director of Sport to William Perkin Church of England High School. William Perkin Church of England High School is one of four Twyford Trust schools, and the new post-holder will be joining us at a time of exciting growth and development.  The role offers a unique opportunity for a motivated and energetic leader to develop an innovative sport curriculum and extended offer for the four Twyford Trust schools using the Sport and Science specialism at William Perkin as the driving force. William Perkin School has excellent sports facilities, a tremendous range of contacts with professional cricket, rugby and football clubs and has a commitment to community engagement in sport. This is an unrivalled opportunity for a sports leader with an outstanding sports background and the ability to think strategically to deliver an outstanding sport provision for William Perkin and the Twyford Trust.

The Director of Sport will work, together with the Headteacher and the community facilities team, to deliver the vision for sport with its proud aim being the creation of a ‘Youth Sports Development Hub’ for West London.   There is a well-developed 14-19 academic curriculum offer including GCSE, A level and BTEC qualifications. The outstanding sport facilities enable all Year 7 - 11 students to experience a ‘sport afternoon’ with each student having an extended 100 minute session in the range of sports on offer.  Particular focus will be given to the showcase team sports selected by the Sport Development Team – Cricket, Rugby, Football and Netball.  The successful candidate will support the sport offer at all Twyford Trust schools through the sharing of best practice, the development of Trust elite coaching programmes and establishing an inter school sport competition in the main team sports.

After school in the ‘Extended Elective’ period from 4-5.30pm there will be ‘Sport for All’ programmes, alongside school team coaching and opportunity to join elite training programmes led by individuals with a very high level sporting or coaching background.  We serve our community by offering coaching and facilities to primary school children and delivering a full community-letting programme to selected anchor tenants.

We firmly believe that anyone who sees the school and meets the pupils and staff will be impressed by the strong community sense of purpose and desire to achieve.  If you have any further questions, or would like to arrange a tour of the school, please contact the Associate Headteacher, Mr Smith at
