Headteacher – Chaulden JMI

L17- L23 • Required for Easter 2024


We are looking to appoint an exceptional Headteacher to lead this exciting new project in Hemel Hempstead, Herts. Chaulden JMI will be formed from the amalgamation of the existing Chaulden Infants and Nursery School and Chaulden Junior School.  It will educate children from nursery to year 6 on a large site with plenty of classroom and outdoor space, and will be part of the well-established Scholars’ Education Trust, with close links to Hemel Hempstead School and Longdean School, both local SET schools. 

The new Headteacher is being appointed at the start of the amalgamation process so they can be part of the decision-making group reviewing curriculum, resources and staffing structures and important future decisions about the direction of school.  They will benefit from the support of an experienced central team with significant expertise in school improvement at all levels

To be successful, candidates will have an expert knowledge of the process of learning and significant primary experience, coupled with excellent interpersonal and leadership skills. They will be looking for the next challenge in their careers and be ready to do whatever it takes to provide the very highest quality of education for all the children in their care.
