Role description

The Portsmouth Grammar School is a leading co-educational day school known for excellent teaching, superb pastoral care and wide-ranging co-curricular opportunities.

We are very much a family school and are pleased to offer an education across the age range. Our Pre-School for 2½ to 4 year olds, the Junior School for children aged 4 to 11 and a Senior School for students aged 11 to 18, are all dedicated to helping girls and boys thrive and to reach their potential.

The Portsmouth Grammar Junior School enjoys a reputation for providing outstanding opportunities for the development of pupils’ knowledge and enjoyment of physical education as well as the acquisition and application of sporting skills.

Sports Coaches in the Junior School work under the direction and supervision of teachers to deliver an excellent standard of coaching in a range of sports which include football, rugby, cricket, and hockey and netball. They report to the Junior School Director of Sport and the Head of Girls’ Games.

We have a new vacancy for a part-time Sports Coach to start as soon as possible in our Junior School.

Applicants should hold a coaching qualification, ideally to Level 2, in one or more main school sports.

Hours of work:

This vacancy is a part-time, term time position for 13 hours each week during PGS term-times, with the hours to be worked on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturday mornings during term time. The exact work pattern will be confirmed by the Junior School Director of Sport or the Head of Girls’ Games and some flexibility will be required across the three days. Saturday Sport sessions run from 9.00am to 11.00am.

There may be the opportunity to work additional hours at other times, for example to provide cover. Any additional hours will be as agreed in advance by the Junior School Director of Sport or the Head of Girls’ Games and will be paid via monthly timesheet in arrears. There may also be opportunities to support on an ad-hoc basis the holiday sports clubs which operate during the school holidays, although this is not a requirement of the role.
