Trinity Multi Academy Trust is proud to have transformed the life chances of thousands of pupils across its existing academies, and our core values of Empathy, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility run through all aspects of academy life. Our secondary schools consistently achieve academic results which place them in the top 10% of highest performing schools in the country and receive national and international recognition for the quality of their provision.
As a Trust we were excited to have been chosen by the Department for Education as their approved sponsor to open a new secondary school to support the increasing population of Barnsley. In September 2021 Trinity Academy St Edward’s opened its doors to a founding cohort of Year 7 students from across the town.
We are now seeking a Sports and Culture Coach to join our expanding team and become a key player in the development and success of Trinity Academy St Edward’s. We are looking to recruit an energetic, enthusiastic and sports-mad colleague to contribute to our thriving INVOLVE program, House system and to support the work of our talented Pastoral team. The successful candidate will be someone who has a real passion for sport and physical activity and who truly believes in the benefits of participation. The candidate will be skilled in one or more sports but have a thirst and drive to embed their love of sport in general to young children. Children are at the centre of all we do at Trinity Academy St Edward’s and the successful candidate will build strong relationships and ensure that our children receive the very best support alongside amazing experiences through participation, coaching and the spectating of sport. Our children love our House system and love the competition it brings. The successful candidate will take a lead in organising and running House events and use their contacts in sport and their experience to organise and lead exciting and innovative House events. They will form part of the new Physical Education team at Trinity Academy St Edward’s and work closely with our Deputy Curriculum Leader of PE to organise and run a multitude of extra-curricular clubs, matches and events.
