Jon Redding

Head of Sports

Born in England where he trained as a secondary school Physical Education teacher from 1992-1996, Jon has worked in four schools in the UK, including 11 years at one school in London as Head of PE, leading teams in national schools competitions and many trips overseas to Dubai, USA and Switzerland. He also spent two years in the USA as a professional soccer coach.

On becoming Director of Sport & Activities at Haut-Lac International Bilingual School in Vevey, Switzerland in 2012, Jon was able to use his knowledge of French to teach in both languages. He ran ski programmes, organised many sports events and trips, and also fell in love with cycling in the mountains in Switzerland, France and Italy. In 2018 Jon and his family moved to Hong Kong where he became Director of Sport at South Island School, a large international school for 1400 students, where he stayed for four years, running basketball, athletics and football programmes.

Jon has always played many sports, competing in some, like football and tennis, to a high standard – and also the occasional ski race – but he also enjoys participating in others, such as cycling, skiing, yoga and golf, just for pleasure. He came to Prague in the summer of 2022 as ECP’s Director of Sport and is looking forward to bringing all his experience to the school to create an exciting sports programme that the students will enjoy and benefit from.
