The Grammar School at Leedsls17 8gs

This is a new and crucial role which will maintain a positive reputation for sport and physical activity, which will help to firmly establish The Grammar School at Leeds as the leading independent school in the north.

The Whole School Director of Sport will develop and lead sport across the school, working closely with the directors of sport in both primary and senior schools to promote collaboration, and build a strong sporting culture for all ages, interests and abilities.
