Full time to start April or September 2019
We are seeking a highly motivated and talented teacher to join the existing team of Senior School staff from April or September 2019. Expertise and the ability to teach and coach cricket to a high standard is essential as this is a comparatively new sport at the school.
You will be involved in developing and leading the curricular and extra-curricular activities for cricket and will participate in the school’s schedule of fixtures and activities during the week and at weekends. Flexibility in teaching across the curriculum, including gymnastics and a variety of other minor sports, is fundamental and we anticipate that the successful applicant will have, or be able to gain up-to-date life-saving qualifications for the teaching of swimming. Experience in teaching GCSE PE and coaching expertise in netball and/or lacrosse as well as tennis and badminton, may prove a distinct advantage.
Applications are welcome from experienced teachers, NQTs or those wishing to obtain Initial Teacher Training via the School Direct programme. Further information about the ITT programme may be found at: http://unitedteaching.org.uk/
