We seek to appoint from September 2019 an enthusiastic and energetic full-time Senior School Teacher of PE with a significant specialism in lacrosse. An extensive involvement with 1st and 2nd team coaching is envisaged as part of this role for the right applicant.
The successful applicant will be an enthusiastic and effective teacher, passionate about Physical Education and willing to make a positive contribution to the PE Department. An ability to teach/coach lacrosse to a high level is of paramount importance, but an ability to teach netball, swimming, cricket, trampolining, athletics, tennis, rounders and gymnastics throughout the school would be advantageous, although not essential. Applicants should state any other particular areas of expertise/enthusiasm on their application form/letter.

The School is an Independent Church of England Day and Boarding School, in membership of the Girls’ Schools’ Association, with 900 pupils aged between 4 and 18. The Prep School has 265 pupils aged 4 to 11 and the Senior School 635 pupils aged 11 to 18, of whom some 180 are in the Sixth Form and 160 are boarders aged 11 to 18.

St. Catherine’s is a selective academic girls’ school which prides itself on its excellent A Level results and the university places which all its leavers secure, including good numbers at Oxbridge. However, this is not at the expense of our commitment to the broader ideal of an all-round education for all our pupils, which will prepare them for full and happy lives as well as successful careers.
Closing date: 12 noon, Tuesday 11 December 2018.
St Catherine’s is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment.
