  • St George's School Ascot Trust Limited
Football Sports Coaches

Job Description

St George's is a thriving independent boarding and day school of 270 girls aged 11-18 around 45% of whom are boarders (full, weekly and flexi) and with a Sixth Form of approximately 80 pupils. St George's offers an ambitious, connected and future-facing education tailored for pupils to realise their potential both at school and in fulfilling adult lives ahead.

Awarded 'excellent across the board' in its November 2022 ISI inspection, the School is a place where girls flourish academically, creatively, physically and morally, a place where risks can be taken, lessons are learnt and challenges are welcome.

We are a welcoming school with a warm sense of community. Visitors are impressed by our facilities within a beautiful setting and the ambition of our educational provision.

Our unique extended day and flexible boarding model allows all girls the time and space to foster confidence, independence and academic curiosity providing a future-facing education exclusively for girls in a world not yet designed for girls and introduces them to contemporary subjects and topics, through speakers, workshops, classes and visits.

St George's offers an education that is grounded, relevant and fosters employability. The school operates as an Educational Trust administered by a Board of Governors, is a member of the Girls' Schools Association (GSA), Boarding Schools Association (BSA) ISBA, AGBIS and is ISC accredited.

We have a single vacancy for either a Teacher of PE (with Football Specialism) OR a Sports Coach to start at the beginning of the Autumn Term (September 2024).

The School has exciting plans for its football provision. Whilst there is already great enthusiasm for the sport, we are looking for an inspirational and proficient Teacher of PE OR a Sports Coach to further lead the development of the game as one of the School's most significant sporting activities. The successful candidate should be confident in teaching and officiating football with the capacity to take on the leadership and development of the sport within the School. The successful candidate will also support the inspirational teaching and coaching of Physical Education in the curriculum.

The appointed candidate should hold an undergraduate degree in Physical Education or Sports Science (or a closely related discipline) or have experience in delivering an effective sports programme in a school context. Applications from NQT's are welcome.

This is a SINGLE full-time post for the academic year and the successful candidate will be appointed on a Fixed Term Contract. 

The post involves supporting after school fixtures and working on Saturdays (some time off during the working week is provided, proportionally, in lieu of the Saturday commitment). There will be a requirement to attend routine teaching events such as parents’ evenings, teaching staff meetings, staff training days preceding each term, and Open Days and Educational Days (as notified).

St George's operates its own generous salary scheme and all teaching staff are auto-enrolled into the APTIS Pension Scheme unless they opt out. Non - qualified teaching members of School staff are enrolled into The Pensions Trust. 

Additional Staff benefits include: 

  • Use of state-of-the-art gym with Technogym equipment at allocated times
  • Staff swimming sessions and family swimming sessions in the recently built 25m, 6-lane indoor pool
  • Supportive Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme
  • Ample free onsite parking
  • Freshly prepared, nutritious lunches in the Dining Room during term time. Refreshments are also available throughout the day in the Staff Room.
