Bradford Grammar SchoolBradford

Bradford Grammar School has a rich background of academic, sporting and creative excellence.  Set in historic, urban surroundings, the school is a caring environment where happiness and the wellbeing of our pupils are paramount.

The school has recently been named Independent School Awards winner for Wellbeing Initiative of the Year 2020 by The TES and, as part of our commitment to excellence, we’re looking for inspirational and enthusiastic coaches to join our prestigious Sports Department at an exciting time in its development.

The school draws equal numbers of pupils from its city surroundings as it does the established suburbs of West Yorkshire and the lower Dales.  Our outstanding sporting alumni include Olympians Alastair and Jonny Brownlee, Adrian Moorhouse, Charlie Hodgson and cycling performance analyst for Team GB, Deborah Sides.

We believe in providing every opportunity for our Junior and Senior pupils and we want to hear from talented graduates who will assist in the coaching and management of teams.  Candidates will have a minimum of LTA Level 3 (or Level 2 currently completing Level 3), played Tennis to a reasonably high level (preferably above a rating of 6.2 and must be able to hit consistently with strong juniors) and be enthusiastic about passing on skills to young people. 

You will be required to take teams on Saturdays and depending on the age-group coached and the timing of fixtures, assistants may be available for club sports during the terms in which they coach, however, school sport will be the priority.
