For nearly five centuries, Christ’s Hospital has pioneered social mobility and challenged social inequality to provide an unrivalled start in life for disadvantaged children. As economic and social inequality continue to grow in the UK, Christ’s Hospital’s mission is as relevant today as it was in 1552. Christ’s Hospital is unique. We are strikingly unlike any other independent school in the UK, with a richly diverse pupil body, in terms of ethnicity and socio-economic background. More than 75% of our pupils are on some form of financial support, with a considerable number receiving full bursaries. We have a vacancy for a part-time Tennis Coach with effect from 17th April 2023.

This post offers the opportunity to coach tennis to u14 & u15 (yr 9 & 10) pupils, working for a maximum of 12 hours per week spread over 4 afternoons of which one will be a Saturday.
The successful candidate will have a proven record of coaching tennis to a high standard. The candidate will be highly motivated and fully prepared to undertake the demands of working in a unique co-educational boarding school. Innovation, flair and vision will be highly valued, as will the ability to inspire pupils to follow a healthy and active lifestyle.
We welcome applications from all sectors of the community as we aspire to attract staff that match the social and cultural diversity of our student intake.
