I pride myself on being highly motivated, hardworking and someone who has a strong desire to work in a challenging, rewarding and worthwhile profession. I am calm and composed when under pressure, always meet deadlines, and I can quickly establish excellent relationships with students and colleagues which is a vital attribute of a PE and Games Teacher. I have a good sense of humour and relentless enthusiasm when working with students which I believe are essential qualities of an outstanding teacher. I gain immense fulfilment when working with children of all ages, genders and abilities supporting them to achieve their full educational potential. I believe that sport provides an avenue that gives students, who may find other subjects more challenging, opportunities to succeed - raising their self-confidence, participation and sense of inclusion. I continually strive to achieve excellence in all my lessons by creating a positive and safe environment that is conducive to learning. An environment where pupils with differing aspirations can gain invaluable preparation for the world beyond school. Such activities make considerable contributions to local communities and assist schools in forging links with affiliations and local sports clubs. As a committed PE teacher I am passionate in my belief that participation in regular physical activity, recreational or competitive, increases their feeling of self- worth whilst enjoying the opportunities sport provides.

I believe in agency, empowerment, independence, inquiry, ownership and self-efficacy for students – and by collaborating and facilitating it is my job to meet their individual needs with my approaches to learning and teaching.
For instance, in the global pandemic and present situation worldwide my specialist subject teaching is critically important to community fitness, health, mental, physical and social well-being. The child’s environment and health and safety are also vital.
Accounting for diversity, equal opportunities, inclusion and language also makes it possible – and lessons have to be engaging, fun and innovative!
One of my greatest strengths is community, inter-personal networking and positive relationships with parents, students and teachers. It is the collaboration between “community (externally and internally) of learners” and members of a society that makes it succeed as a “team” together in the world.

I’m a driven and extremely experienced ‘UEFA A LICENCE’ football coach. I was a professional footballer for 20 years and played nearly 500 matches, winning 4 promotions in that time. I’ve worked with and under some of the best coaches and managers in England. I would like now to pass on my years of knowledge and experience to others including the younger generation. I’m used to being successful but also know it’s hard work that brings that. I set high standards of myself and demand that from those I work with also.
I am an experienced PE teacher (Head of Rugby & Tennis) with a good all round knowledge and practical teaching experience of a wide range of sports such Rugby 1stXV, Cricket 13A, Tennis U12-U18, Hockey U15-18, Football 15A, Swimming and Athletics. My school also uses FMS. Outside of school I coach Middlesex U15 & U16 and previously coached with Hampstead RFC. Academic teaching is a passion of mine and I have taught Edexcel GCSE and A Level PE as well as Edexcel EPQ at UCS. I mark papers for AQA GCE PE and moderate the NEA A Level PE for OCR. These additional job responsibilities require me to work under pressure and I my level 3 apprenticeship in leadership and management has supported me.Through my experiences of teaching examination PE, I have successfully supported a broad range of students with diverse needs through challenging learning journeys. Within my department I am in charge of coordinating the school sports day and the Summer term 11+ and 16+ induction days. I also lead the year 12 Sports Science Enrichment programme. More recently I devised and launched a brand new whole school internal games programme ‘The UCS Games’ which targeted inclusion at a whole school level. The UCS Games was designed to promote the schools four values of relationships, resourcefulness, resilience and responsibility. I have been a form tutor in all key stages and I find the role to be one of the most fulfilling parts of the job. I have written successful Oxbridge and US references and I am currently the UCS Higher Education advisor for sports courses, careers and US/UK sport scholarships. I promote sportsmanship, teamwork and positive wellbeing and encourage my students to be self-aware individuals and foster the same values. I am seeking opportunities to coach rugby, cricket, tennis, hockey or football. Additionally, academic PE and athletic development coaching.

My name is Andrew Thompson; I am a qualified physical education teacher. I was born and raised in the UK, completing my GCSE's and A level's before progressing onto Manchester Metropolitan University to study sports coaching and development. After taking a year away from my studies to work in a school, I completed my teaching certificate in physical education at Wolverhampton University.
My teaching career began at Madeley Academy, where I was the lead physical education teacher for students aged 16-18 years old. My educational journey has moved me to teach in Beijing, China. I have over 15 years of experience in schools with diverse expertise in shaping students' lifetime success with physical education and curriculum activities. I have held positions as head of department, grade level leader, assistant activities and athletics director and director of activities and sport. During my free time, my passions are sport and my family.
I am an experienced leader within the sports and recreation management field working for National Sporting organisations and the education sector. I have extensive hands on experience in sports coaching across a range of sports. I excel at growing sustainable, adaptable sporting organisations that deliver financial viability through developing and growing effective and sustainable partnerships supported by an effective service offering.
With over 13 years’ experience providing engaging & structured physical education in high-performing preparatory schools, I am certain to bring seasoned expertise in student development to any school.
I am a stickler for being on time, disciplined and have the ability to improvise, adapt and overcome a situation when it is needed. These values were instilled during my 12 years in the British Army.
I did not come into teaching the conventional way of university, so I have learnt from day one from the coaches and PE teachers that I have worked with or come across. Also, I would take note of what the heads of the department go through within their own daily routines. With that, I have made myself into an inspiring, confident, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, PE teacher and more recently a leader, manager and role model that encourages exercise and a healthy approach to daily life.
My time as Head of PE at The Hampshire School Chelsea, sees me set high expectations so that all students are inspired, motivated & challenged to reach their full potential, with a commitment to my pupils and the quality of their experiences by catering for the range of needs of all the students & I provide a stimulating, happy, safe & supportive learning environment.
As a Teacher of PE in both Hampshire and Hill House School, I planned & taught well-structured, differentiated lessons for EYFS to Year 8 that aligned to the agreed curriculum & cultivated intellectual curiosity in my students. I was responsible for the educational development of my classes, delivering an age-appropriate curriculum. I made sure to foster positive self-esteem in my pupils & hold high expectations of their work & behaviour.
All of this has allowed me to develop a mastery of PE as a subject along with general teaching pedagogy. Of course, ensuring the wellbeing of students & safeguarding them is my ultimate concern.
I am extremely hard working and committed to delivering high quality teaching and learning to improve and raise standards wherever I am. I believe in motivating children to be their best selves, instilling an appreciation of learning across the curriculum.
Coaching and teaching sport has always been an incentive of mine from a young age, as I have been given countless opportunities to participate in sports at various levels, and complete numerous coaching qualifications. Sport within a scholastic setting is very much person centred, with positive interactions vital for student’s success and development of knowledge, skills, and desire to achieve and excel. Coaching will allow me to create an environment where students’ build character, developing personal attributes and engage more in the theoretical underpinnings of sport. The knowledge I have gained within my BSc Coaching and Sport Science degree (Nottingham Trent University) has allowed me to take a step back and critically think about how to students learn, with a large portion of a successful environment coming from the coach themselves. I believe I have the attributes to make a difference, engaging students to learn and benefit from sport. Furthermore, the challenges I have overcome in my degrees have prepared me for the workload and pressures of coaching within a scholastic or professional setting.
My current postgraduate degree within Loughborough University in MSc Strength and Conditioning, has vastly improved my coaching ability and knowledge specifically within training athletes the fundamentals in S&C. Modules within injury prevention, neuromuscular training, and applied S&C science has allowed me to put my theoretical understanding into my coaching. I’m currently a part of an intern program within Loughborough Sport women’s BUCS rugby and basketball team, in which I plan periodized training programs which focus on developing sport specific training practices, run S&C on training and match days, and run small rehabilitation sessions on Mondays. I also provide S&C and warmups for the Loughborough Sport Women’s COE rugby group, where these specific athletes are training to become Loughborough Lightening athletes with some playing at a professional level. The experience I have will suit the Sports Professional role as I’m consistently helping develop athletes to their full potential.
Other coaching experience and qualifications I have such as level 1 coaching in football, level 2 in dodgeball and Gold SSLSA (40+ coaching hours within school PE department) have allowed me to connect and develop key interpersonal relationship qualities and develop administrative and pastoral skills highly relevant for this role. Also, knowledge and experience playing in hockey, rugby, and netball as well as a vast interest in Olympic sports will prepare me for the challenges I will face and overcome in my future career.
Aside from my teaching experience, I have also worked as front of house using my communication and teamwork skills, working with others to provide a happy and helpful service to customers. I am confident in what I do, committed to my development as an effective coach. My future will be to continue coaching in a highly respectful sport environment, developing my expertise, with the option of completing a PGCE (sport) course.
My philosophy of coaching is believing the best way to coach someone is to see them as a person. Not a sprinter, rugby player, nor an athlete – a person. Well-being and personal biopsychospiritual homeostasis is paramount within developing a young person’s qualities. I believe sport can offer an opportunity for young people to develop skills and prepare them for life outside of sport and school. A coach can have an everlasting impact on a student’s life, and I adhere to creating an environment where students fully engage and enjoy the qualities sport provides.
I hope this personal statement takes into consideration the passion I have to grow and develop into the best practitioner I can be.
I am a qualified Netball coach and have been coaching for 10+years. I have recently resigned from my teaching role within a primary school to focus on my coaching.
I run a very successful Netball club which I have built up the last 12 years and have taught from ages 5 years to adult Seniors.
I am on the DBS update service and have first aid and safeguarding training.
I have also had training as a tennis and sports and leisure coach.
I enjoy anything involving Netball, whether it be coaching, officiating or developing plans for other coaches.
After a professional sporting career lasting over 18 years, I successfully transitioned into coaching both locally and professionally . Over the last 10 years of coaching, I have positively impacted young students that are currently playing sports at semi-professional, professional and international levels. Coaching has provided me with the opportunity to work with young people of mixed genders and all age groups, from various social, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, ranging from summer camps and school tours/ ECA's to working in Elite Professional Football Academies.
Having recently completed my Master’s degree in performance coaching, alongside teachers and coaches of Tennis, Netball, Rugby and Cycling from around the world, it further substantiated my belief that there are numerous similarities and transferable skills between high performance coaching and teaching.
As such, 18 months ago, I successfully applied for a sports coaching role with Kellett British International School, Hong Kong. The sports coach role quickly developed into a PE Coaching role, split between the Co-educational; (Prep) Pok Fu Lam campus and the larger (All Through) Kowloon Bay campus, that develops students aged 4 to 18. Whereby my positive character, interpersonal skills, organisation and collaboration into the departments, garnered trust for me to both assist and lead multi-sports PE, Games, Extra- Curricular activities and teams, on and off both campuses.
I believe that my passion to become a qualified teacher of Physical Education, in addition to my experience, skills and background, make me an excellent potential candidate for Coaching/Graduate Assistant sporting roles.
I am conscientious in my duties and work well within a team environment, however I am also experienced and confident enough to use initiative and take a proactive approach to supporting the needs of staff and pupils, qualities that I feel, should, align with the vision and ethos of any potential employers.
It would be a pleasure to further share with you and elaborate on my previous experiences. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at +852 93303617 or email at email@example.com .
Thank you for your consideration,
