Oundle School is one of the country’s premier co-educational boarding and day schools, with 860 boarding and 260 day pupils. Sport is highly valued and flourishes at Oundle. The School prides itself in its pursuit of sporting excellence and elite performance, competing in local, regional and national competitions across a wide range of sports and age groups.
Pupils participate in a minimum of three sports afternoons per week, and can train up to five times with their team on top of individual training programmes. We provide competitive and recreational opportunities for our students and support those who show great potential through our 13+ and 16+ Scholarship, as well as dedicated support from our coaches, academic staff and pastoral team.
Oundle School Cricket Club (OSCC) celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2005. The first inter-school game was against Uppingham in 1855, but archive records suggest that cricket was played in the School as early as the 1830s.
The Club believes that cricket should be a sport for all. The programme is differentiated to cater for all abilities, from the social cricketer to those that harbour a desire to play the game professionally. Oundle has links with a number of counties and a good number of pupils are involved in county age group and academy squads.
To start in September 2018, we have an exciting opportunity for an experienced coach to join us as Head of Cricket. Under the direction and guidance of the Director of Sport, the Head of Cricket will have responsibility for running the cricket programme, ensuring that all teaching, coaching and administrative tasks are completed efficiently, to ensure success, enjoyment and enthusiasm for Oundle School Sport.
Applicants must have relevant coaching qualifications at, or approaching, level 3 (or equivalent experience) and a full valid driving licence. Experience of teaching/coaching children, managing and developing others, and coaching elite sport is essential.

The role holder will work 20 hours per week term one, 30 hours per week term two, 40 hours per week term three, and 30 hours per week for the two weeks worked outside of term time (average 29.14 hours per week).
