Elizabeth Phillips - Director of Sports (Junior and Senior Schools)

Elizabeth is excited and proud to be taking on the role of Director of Sports of the whole school at St Swithun’s. Elizabeth’s passion for sport crosses a wide range of activities such as netball, hockey, sailing, swimming, and dance. The grounding she garnered from her school, club and county teams led her to decide on a Bachelor of Education honours degree in Physical Education and Outdoor Education.

She has taught in the UK, USA, The Bahamas and Thailand, and in a variety of curriculums, such as British, IB and Singaporean.

Whilst abroad, Elizabeth has worked with 2-18 year olds and developed further experience teaching and playing in numerous sports, such as football, basketball, badminton, and handball. Elizabeth oversaw the development of a sports complex at her last school as the Athletics Director, has led the Duke of Edinburgh’s award, and been an IB CAS coordinator.

She is now enjoying adding one more sport: lacrosse, to her repertoire, after having completed her Masters of the Arts in Education at Bath University at the same time as moving back to the UK and starting her position with us at St Swithun’s. The future looks bright and we are excited to continue to create a school ethos that drives sports for all, whilst nurturing those who wish to excel.
