Head of Netball
Fulneck School is one of the leading independent schools in Yorkshire. A Fulneck education opens doors for its pupils, giving them the tools and skills they need to approach the next stage of their careers with confidence and enthusiasm. Our committed and expert staff inspire our pupils to gain a love of learning, an inquisitive mind, the confidence to try new things and old-fashioned Yorkshire grit to pick themselves up if at first they don’t succeed.
We are seeking to appoint a highly motivated and inspirational Head of Netball with a clear philosophy and vision for the development of the game. The successful candidate will be required to establish an inclusive and forward-thinking Netball programme for all students at Fulneck School from 3-18.
Netball is one of our key performance sports here at Fulneck and we have a very competitive fixture list to challenge our pupils as well as an extensive extra-curricular sports programme. The School is very proud of our recent achievements in the sport, and, as we look forward, we want to continue to build on this. We concentrate on Netball during both the Christmas and Easter terms, and have had significant success in regional competitions. We have a Leeds Rhinos coach attached to the school to provide further expertise. Many of our pupils play for local teams and each year several go on to represent Leeds Schools.
Our sports facilities are continuing to improve, including a recently refurbished Sports Hall. Our new Fitness Suite has allowed us to develop a modern and forward-thinking Strength and Conditioning Programme. Our new Sports Pavilion is due to be opened in the Spring.
The successful candidate will continue to develop the sporting culture of the school and will have a key role to play in our Sports Scholarship Programme. The successful candidate will be expected to teach Core PE and Games across both the Junior and Senior School, along with academic Physical Education at KS4 and KS5.
The final closing date for this role is midday on Monday 23rd March 2020.
Interviews for this post will be held during week commencing 23rd March.
Candidates are required to complete our application form along with a covering letter outlining how your experiences match our requirements.
