Assistant Director of Sport (Lower School)
Closing Date: 9:00am 29 January 2022
Haileybury is an outstanding British independent co-educational boarding school, offering modern boarding and day provision for 900 boys and girls aged 11-18. Established in 1862, we are situated on a glorious and historic 500-acre campus in Hertfordshire, just 20 miles north of London.
The Assistant Director of Sport will lead and develop Lower School Sport in an all year round programme. ADoS(LS) will direct the lower school coaching programme throughout the year at both the top end of performance sport, as well as providing a nurturing sporting provision for those pupils whose aspirations lie more towards participation than performance level sport.
ADoS(LS) would also offer a specialism in either hockey, netball or rugby, and would also take on the role of assistant director in their specialist sport, in order to help drive forward further the programme of one of these key focus sports. This will include leading 1:1 and small group sessions throughout the year, where there is the chance to work with national level players; and developing staff to produce county and international players of the future.
The nature of a 24hr a day, 7 days per week boarding school requires staff to work flexibly and as the School is used by pupils at weekends, which are also the time most parents visit the School, there may be a requirement for the job holder to work early mornings, evenings and weekends.
