Closing date:

RDFZ King’s College HangzhouChina

Date posted:
Start date: August 2018
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Undisclosed
Contract term: Permanent

RDFZ King’s College School Hangzhou is one of two new school development projects in China initiated through partnership between the prestigious King’s College School, Wimbledon and the highly successful Chinese education management group, Dipont Education. A third partner for the Hangzhou project is The High School Affiliated to Renmin University (RDFZ), one of China’s leading schools. At capacity, the whole school will serve over 3,100 students from 3 to 18 years of age.

About the School

The School is located on a lakeside site in the Yuhang District of Hangzhou. Facilities are world-class, with the space designed as a place that responds to its local context and a global education culture.  The campus is in final fit-out stage and will provide students and staff with a wonderful learning and working environment. An exceptional teaching and leadership team for all sections of the school has been appointed and student admission levels are excellent.
Hangzhou, with a population of over 9 million people, is the capital of Zhejiang Province and an important city in China, recognised for its history, prosperity and beautiful natural scenery. It recently hosted the G-20 summit and will stage the Asian Games in 2022. Shanghai can be accessed within 1 hour by high speed train.

About the Role

Reporting to the Director of Sport (who has transferred from King’s College School, Wimbledon), the Girls’ PE specialist is a whole school position across primary and secondary ages. The promotion of a wide spectrum of sports and activities to students across each section of the school is crucial to the schools’ mission in delivering a holistic educational experience. For this particular role, it is hoped that the successful appointee will act as a role model to girls across the school and encourage the importance of developing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. A specialism in gymnastics or athletics would be advantageous but not essential.     

Delivering an exciting curriculum to engage students in PE and a range of sports, the Girls’ PE specialist will work collaboratively with fellow PE teachers to deliver the programme to all students in each section of the school. Support for the co-curricular programme is also essential and the delivery of appropriate co-curricular activities under the leadership of the Director of Co-curricular Programme.   

This exciting and challenging role commands a highly competitive salary and benefits package, including: high quality housing; flights for employee and dependents and medical insurance for employee and dependents. Full tuition support will be provided for any successful applicant with school age children. The position will be offered on an initial two-year contract term with annual renewal thereafter.

Applications are invited from candidates with:

  • Enthusiasm and passion for the promotion of PE and sports activities
  • A creative and innovative approach to the teaching of PE
  • The ability to work collaboratively and contribute to the development of an outstanding school
