We are seeking to appoint a Director of Sport who will not only create and train high performing teams but also help the students develop a love of sport and a healthy life style. It is an exceptional opportunity for an ambitious and driven individual, who is passionate about sport. Prior experience of leading a team is not essential.

The School’s aim is for every student to participate in sport activities both within the school and at a local and national level. The School’s sport teams have won numerous trophies in various competitions including football, athletics and cricket.

Physical education is delivered within the curriculum and as part of extra-curricular provision, which includes boxing, volleyball, cricket, fitness training and table tennis. Extra-curricular sport activities are delivered both during the week and at weekends.

We are committed to investing further resources in the development of sport at the School, and we are looking for an individual who will share this commitment.

The behaviour of students is outstanding and the disciplined environment allows the teachers to focus on delivering great academic outcomes.
