This is an exciting opportunity to play a pivotal role in the continued development of Sport/PE at The Royal High School Bath. 

Sport is a key part of our offer in both the Junior and Senior schools, and the current Director of Sport has had a significant impact over the past 3 years.

We are continuing to invest in our Sport and PE facilities, with additional courts and a new fitness suite/dance studio planned which will be complete by September 2019, so it will be an excellent opportunity to be at the forefront of these developments.

If you are passionate about sport and have the enthusiasm and energy to challenge our girls and champion the importance of physical fitness we would be delighted to hear from you.

In return, we offer a variety of benefits, such as:

· Competitive salaries and pay progression

· Access to extensive professional development opportunities

· Free life assurance benefit

· A discount of up to 50% on fees for children at GDST schools
