We are seeking a dynamic Sports Graduate to coach and guide students to develop their passion and skills in sport by preparing and directing them through games and practice sessions. The facilities at Woldingham are impressive and you will be working with a happy and supportive team.
Additionally, you will provide support to the residential teams to deliver pastoral care and activities for the boarders.
Woldingham is a happy and successful Catholic boarding and day school for girls aged 11 to 18 and is firmly established as one of the top girls’ independent schools in the UK, outperforming many schools that are far more selective in their admissions process. Central to this achievement is Woldingham’s academic enrichment and extra-curricular programmes, pastoral support and caring community. Close to London, yet in an outstandingly beautiful rural setting, Woldingham has a strong community and culture building on a proud heritage that stretches back 175 years. We are committed to an exciting future that is underpinned by fresh ideas, an innovative spirit and state-of-the-art facilities.
