An exciting new position is offered to develop and lead hockey for boys and girls at a rapidly growing and forward-thinking school from September 2020. Radnor House Sevenoaks is a co-educational prep and senior school with high aspirations. The sport at Radnor House Sevenoaks is at an exciting time as a result of growth in pupil numbers and significant investment in sports facilities.
Additional staff are being recruited to introduce a gender-equal approach to sport, which will focus on both participation and performance in hockey, football, cricket and swimming for both boys and girls from ages 8-18. The Director of Hockey will work closely with the Director of Sport, Head of Prep PE and the Directors of Football, Cricket and Swimming in developing the school’s sports programme with a special focus on leading the hockey programme.
By September 2020, the school’s new AstroTurf will have been completed, providing a full-size hockey pitch. The all-weather surface will add to the school’s current facilities which include a newly refurbished fitness suite, Sports Hall, a 25-metre swimming pool with viewing gallery, two sets of hard courts and use of extensive grass playing fields. The school plans to develop additional playing fields which will include a pavilion, cricket wicket, grass athletics track, a rugby pitch and football pitches.
Significant potential exists to develop hockey at Radnor House with its investment in facilities and staffing and its links with surrounding national league hockey clubs Sevenoaks, Oxted, Bromley and Beckenham and East Grinstead. The Director of Hockey will enjoy the support of a strong and experienced team of PE teachers and coaches which includes two national league hockey players.
