Rowing Coach

Hereford Cathedral School is seeking to appoint a well-qualified and inspirational Rowing Coach who will be, in addition, Head of Rowing from September 2017.

The School has a long-established national reputation for rowing, and has a thriving Boat Club: approximately 60 pupils row in a variety of crews from J14 upwards. Pupils are encouraged to compete in a range of different types of boats, and to compete at the highest level of school and youth international rowing. Rowing takes place across all three terms. The competitive crews usually attend a rowing camp during the Summer and Easter holidays.

All pupils in School crews compete at several heads and regattas, including the National Schools Regatta. Senior and JI6 crews compete at Henley.

The School enjoys a good relationship with Hereford Rowing Club, from which it leases its rowing facilities. The club occupies a magnificent site on the River Wye, close to the centre of Hereford.
