Head of Boys' Hockey

Fantastic working environment ● London 30 mins by train 

21 acre sports ground with two hockey pitches and a training pitch

Kingston Grammar School (KGS) has an extensive sporting history stretching back over 150 years, with hockey being played at the school since the mid-1800s. The School has produced many Olympians and international hockey players over the years and we are now looking for an inspirational, dynamic Head of Boys' Hockey to continue this legacy.

This is an exciting time for hockey at KGS with the appointment of our new Director of Hockey and on the recent success of our U18 boys becoming the National Indoor Champions for 2017.  

The successful candidate would ideally have experience of the England Hockey Player Pathway and have coached and/or played at National League level.  There is no requirement for the appointee to be a qualified teacher but the ability to teach academically would be desirable. 

The Head of Boys' Hockey will be expected to contribute fully to the Sport Development Plan and the wider life of the school. The role includes Saturday fixtures during term time, as well as pre-season training and tours both in the UK and internationally.

The school offers a competitive remuneration package, commensurate with qualifications and experience, in a fantastic working environment.  

Closing date: Monday 30th October 2017
