Director of Sport

  • Organisation: St Augustine's Priory
  • Location: West London
  • Salary info Competitive
  • Tenure: Term Time
  • Closing Date: Monday 6 February 2023

The position of Director of Sport is an exciting opportunity to lead an established department bringing new ideas for all the students in our school.

The PE Department at St Augustine’s Priory is vibrant and energetic whose aim is to give all girls the opportunity to participate in a broad and balanced curriculum. We strive for every girl to achieve success in both curricular and extra-curricular activities working to the best of her ability and to gain an understanding of the role of sport in a balanced lifestyle throughout their life. Our teams consistently excel in local and national fixtures.

St Augustine’s Priory is a leading Catholic, independent day school for girls aged 3-18 (with boys in the Nursery). The four parts of the school (Pre-Preps, Preps, Seniors and Sixth Form) are located on the same site. We are an all-through school and it is an enormous benefit to girls and parents that pupils who join us in the Prep School are able to move seamlessly up with us through to the Sixth Form years. As a Catholic school we hold the care of the whole person as central to what we do.

In November 2021, we were inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) which rated us “excellent” (the highest grade) in both Educational Quality and Personal Development, and we are committed to the highest standards in student safety, welfare and wellbeing. Inspectors noted that not only do pupils have “outstanding attitudes towards their learning” but also “excellent levels of self-esteem and self-confidence which enable them to take the school's core values into the wider world.” The Good Schools Guide describes us as “quietly brilliant” and the school’s most recent Diocesan Inspection Report graded St Augustine’s Priory as “Outstanding” the highest possible grade in all categories across both Classroom Religious Education and the Catholic Life of the school.
