John McClinton

Director of Sport


My name is John McClinton and I am Director of Sport at KPS. I have a Master’s degree in Exercise and Nutrition and a background in sports nutrition; before moving into teaching, I worked with the England national football team as a nutritional advisor. More recently I have worked as Head of Physical Education and Head of Fitness at two of London’s top prep schools: Wetherby Prep School and Sussex House School. I also engage in motivational speaking and have presented at the Independent Schools Sports Conference on the topic of sports nutrition.

I am passionate about the welfare and wider educational needs of every child I teach and believe that a collaborative, target-orientated approach to learning facilitates personal growth and critical thinking. I aim to challenge the Kensington Park School boys and girls in a dynamic, engaging manner to instil in them a lifelong commitment to health and wellness activities.

Personally, I enjoy variety of activities that include running, trekking and active fun with my wife and three-year-old daughter Stella.
