Work For Us

Progress Champions

£42,403 to £49,086 with significant and relevant experience.

We are seeking to appoint TWO experienced, proven and highly motivated professionals to take lead roles in our response to the aftermath of COVID-19 and our ongoing commitment to closing the disadvantaged gap.  We foresee new levels and types of disadvantage following the mandatory school closures and as a school already committed to closing the disadvantaged gap we are preparing now to do more in the future and fulfill our raising standards mission:

“Expecting more of every student and groups of students, at every level, and using professional conversations to identify who, what and by when. Keeping up (at KS3) not catching up (at KS4).”

You will be an excellent and experienced teacher, in either a STEM subject, or an English, languages or humanities subject looking for a role where you will be teaching in the classroom for around 60% of your time and working with targeted individuals and groups of students for the other 40% of your contact time.  You will also be seeking a role in which you can make a difference to the practice and knowledge of other teaching colleagues.

The closing date for applications is Friday 22nd May 2020.   We reserve the right to appoint at any stage in the process so early application is encouraged.

Positive Behaviour Mentor

£20,903 – £23,080
Term Time Actual £17,358 – £19,166

We are seeking to appoint an experienced, proven and highly motivated professional to work with a key group of around fifteen young people in a mentoring, coaching and personal development role, e.g. to remove their barriers to learning and support student progress.

The Hemel Hempstead School is very proud of the excellent behaviour of its students, and is determined that all students are able to succeed and be happy, regardless of any barrier to their learning.  One such barrier can be behaviour and this new role seeks to expand the existing Attendance, Behaviour and Intervention Team, as the school expands to 217 students in each year group.

This role requires a special kind of person, one who thrives in a complex environment, working with young people who are, at times, struggling.  The chosen candidate will have an unwavering commitment to the success and happiness of young people, regardless of barriers to their learning or personal development.  They will have a relentless optimism and a good sense of humour.  They will become the key worker and trusted adult for this group of students in lessons, in unstructured time, in small groups and in individual coaching sessions.

Teacher of Food

£25,543 – £41,635 MPR / UPR

We are seeking to appoint an experienced, proven and highly motivated professional to teach food across key stages three and four.  You would be a member of the popular and thriving Art, Design and Technology Faculty and so the ability and want to teach other areas, such as graphic or product design, would make you a highly desirable candidate.

The faculty delivers a fun and exciting key stage curriculum, based around developing culinary skills and a love of cooking.  At key stage four students take the WJEC Food and Nutrition GCSE in which they produce some stunning dishes for their final project pieces.  The faculty runs an annual ‘bake off’ as part of our exceptional House System and we enter students into the Rotary Club Young Chefs competition
