Head of Cricket and Teacher of PE

Head of Cricket and Teacher of PE (ideally with Sociology)

We are looking to appoint a Head of Cricket who is a male Teacher of PE & Games (it is an occupational requirement that the successful candidate be male).  Essential to this position is a Cricket specialism with a minimum of UKCC Level 2 in Coaching qualification in Cricket and either a BA QTS or a BSc Sport Science and PCGE qualification. The successful candidate will have proven ability to teach across the School's entire age range, but particularly at GCSE. A Sociology specialism and experience teaching the sociological component of the A-Level Physical Education course would be highly advantageous. An ability to teach Rugby, Football and/or Hockey would be advantageous. Desirable for this position is a coaching qualification in an additional sport, as well as a current qualification in First Aid. Applications from ECTs are welcomed.

The successful candidate should be able to inspire and motivate pupils across the school through a diverse range of learning styles and be able to offer pastoral care, particularly to the boys in their care. They should be able to work on Saturdays for sporting fixtures, as well as for periods during school holidays for match tours or other school trips. Involvement with these latter responsibilities will particularly suit a teacher with strong organisational and communication skills. All teaching staff should expect to be allocated a Form Teacher role as part of their responsibilities.

The Sports department at Harrodian is the largest in the school and teaches PE & Games across the entire age range from Reception through Year 13. At Harrodian, we believe in offering a breadth of activity so that all pupils can participate and represent their school in competitive fixtures. The departmental values of responsibility, humility, work rate, discipline and enjoyment are a focus in all lessons in order to help our pupils develop the practical skills they need to achieve their potential in all areas.

The Sports department offers a professional and collaborative working environment where our students' achievement and progress are at the forefront of our teaching. We are looking for a PE teacher who consistently models excellent practice and can make a significant contribution to this strong and successful department.

Harrodian is blessed with superb grounds and the majority of sport takes place on the school site. The School has a Dance studio, cricket nets, three Astroturf facilities, tennis courts, a swimming pool and the most glorious fields! The School has recently acquired a Boat House at Putney and will be looking to launch a school rowing club.
