  • Do you have a sporting passion?
  • Are you interested in coaching the next generation to sporting excellence?

 Then this could be the job for you!

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic sports coach to join our Academy team.  The successful candidate will work across our three Whinless Down Academy schools: Priory Fields, St. Martin’s and Vale View, working alongside our Academy PE Lead to develop outstanding practice and nurture the next generation to sporting excellence.  We are seeking an individual with a love of sport who is able to inspire others.

It is our vision that every child should have the opportunity to experience a wide range of different sporting activities and that all children should be encouraged to develop active, healthy lifestyles.

You will need a recognised coaching qualification in a sport of your choice, and the commitment to developing teams/squads in this particular area.  This will be achieved through PE lessons and out-of-school club opportunities.  For this reason, a degree of flexibility in working hours is required.  

We offer a supportive network of staff who are committed to best outcomes for our children.  Each of the three schools has excellent indoor and outdoor facilities to support the delivery of the PE curriculum.  For the right candidate, we would offer further opportunity to train to coach in different sporting areas.
