We are offering a fantastic opportunity for a number of Sports Graduates to join us for one or two-year development posts.
If you are accepted into the programme, from day one, you will have a full and varied role in the academic and pastoral functions of the school, gaining insight and experience into all facets of this vibrant establishment. Your days will be spent assisting in PE and swimming lessons in the morning and coaching in the afternoon. You will also be involved in after school clubs, the Sport Scholars’ strength and conditioning programme and the provision we offer our boarding pupils.
You will reside in staff accommodation which is usually situated within a boarding house, and during two evenings a week, you will play an active role in the running of the boarding house and also take part in leave-weekend activities.
After the first year, if you would like to pursue a career in teaching, we may be able to support you in a PGCE course, enabling you to continue working with us while training towards Qualified Teacher Status.
During your PGCE year you will:
• Teach a timetable across 2 key stages as well as coaching games every afternoon
• Be assigned a mentor to guide you and help you through the programme
• Receive relevant on the job training and work experience
