Westbourne is passionate about sport and being active. Our excellent specialist teachers and coaches encourage enjoyment of sport, as well as pushing pupils to
develop flair and intelligent game play.
We are looking for an outstanding Head of Girls’ Sport who will inspire the children towards high levels of achievement, whilst ensuring maximum possible participation. Sport at Westbourne House is of a very high standard, but inclusive. Strong coaching skills in netball, swimming, athletics and rounders are desirable, together with experience of coaching hockey. Superb organisational skills are also required, although a Sports Secretary does provide support.
Westbourne organises sports tours that reap huge benefits in terms of the children’s skills and playing experience. There is an extensive programme for matches and tournaments against other schools and all ability levels have the opportunity to play competitive sport.
The ability to teach a subject in addition to Sport may be desirable. Contribution to the extra-curricular programmes and willingness to drive a school minibus are essential.
There may be the possibility of staff accommodation on site in return for boarding duties. Westbourne House creates a safe, supportive and fun boarding environment for children to help them develop into caring, self-reliant and confident individuals. Boarding duties may include the running of a range of activities such as art, cooking and games. Please indicate on the application form if this is of interest.
We can offer:
- Strong, supportive staff team committed to raising standards
- Competitive salary
- Pension Scheme
- Possibility of staff accommodation (one bedroom) on site in return for some boarding duties
- Discretionary school fee discount
- Use of the school’s facilities
- Employee Assistance Programme
We reserve the right to interview and offer to a strong candidate prior to the closing date. For this reason, early applications are encouraged.
Please apply by completing the application form. CVs may be attached, but not in place of the application form. Please return completed applications to Robyn Aubrey at email@example.com .
