We excel at district, county and national levels, as well as supporting many individual students competing nationally and internationally across various disciplines.

We run an extensive super-curricular programme offering opportunities for all our students and a commitment to this is an essential requirement. Whilst we are ideally looking for someone who has expertise in football and cricket, we are very happy to consider applications from individuals who have a passion for other disciplines and a track record of excellence.

We are also passionate about the wellbeing of our staff, and in addition to a generous allocation for PPA, we have pledged our commitment to the DfE Wellbeing Charter, declaring our commitment to protect, promote and enhance the wellbeing and mental health of all our employees.
