Are you as passionate as we are to inspire and nurture young people?  Do you want to share in our vision to provide a world class education?  If that sounds like you then seize this opportunity. 

12 miles to the East of York we offer a unique working environment based within a friendly market town, but close to major cities and heritage coastlines. Our successful co-educational day and boarding school is thriving, and we require outstanding graduates to join our school for a 10 month residential placement (September 2019 to early July 2020) who will motivate and stretch all pupils, whilst allowing every child to achieve to the best of their ability. 

Ideally you will be expecting to graduate in Summer 2019 or be seeking a one year under-graduate placement. You will develop skills and experience in sports coaching and pastoral responsibilities which will be valuable experience for anyone interested in pursuing a teaching or coaching career. 

You will help to enhance further competitive teams in two or more of the following sports: Rugby, Hockey, Cricket, Netball, Tennis, Rounders, Athletics and Squash. In addition to being fully involved in the games, PE and extra-curricular programmes across the Foundation, you will be expected to undertake some boarding duties and will therefore need to live in accommodation on site. You would not normally be expected to work during the school holidays, although there might be the opportunity to be involved in sports tours and special coaching days.

In return you will receive:

 - structured support and coaching to develop your skills and knowledge

 - £9,000 for the duration of your placement

 - accommodation and meals during term time
