(including PGCE training)
St Hugh's educates 350 girls and boys between the ages of 3 and 13 and is situated on a beautiful green campus of 40 acres in the South Oxfordshire countryside, only 25 minutes from Central Oxford. We aim to give all our children academic and pastoral excellence in a friendly environment in which each child can discover what they are good at and, therefore, thrive and gain confidence in themselves.
This is an exciting opportunity for a recent university graduate who is interested in developing a career in teaching or coaching sport in an environment which encourages “sports for all”. This ethos ensures that all our pupils are given the opportunity to take part in a broad range of sports and to develop to their maximum potential whilst ensuring high standards are met. We have an extensive fixture list both locally and in national competitions. Our sporting facilities are first class, with acres of playing fields, cricket nets, Astro turf, five netball courts, a full-sized sports hall and a new indoor swimming pool.
The vacancy is a two-year programme. The first year will act as preparation for a PGCE to be undertaken in year two (subject to the candidate successfully completing probation in Year 1). In the second year St Hugh’s would then support the candidate through a PGCE (Currently through Buckingham University). At the end of the two year programme the candidate would have the opportunity to apply for available roles at St Hugh’s. For any candidates who would be interested in supporting Boarding at St Hugh’s then accommodation may be available.
The successful candidate will be welcomed into an enthusiastic, collaborative and hard-working team. The school offers excellent benefits including a competitive salary on our own salary scale with scope for progression, an outstanding working environment in our beautiful estate with easy access to transport links and being part of the vibrant and supportive community of the historic St Hugh's School.
