Contract Type: Full Time
Start Date: January 2025
Education Setting: Secondary School
Salary: L18 – L31 (plus 10% MAT uplift)
Job Category: Headteacher
Location: Hendon

Hasmonean MAT has an enviable national reputation for academic rigour and all-round educational excellence in both Jewish and secular education, preparing students for success in world-class universities and in their lives beyond school.

Due to the current Headteacher retiring, the Governors and Trustees now seek an exceptional leader to join as the Headteacher of the Girls’ School to make a crucial contribution to the continued success of Hasmonean as a whole. Working closely with the CEO, Andrew McClusky, this is an exciting opportunity for an experienced educationalist and leader to help a high performing organisation seize the opportunities and meet the challenges of a rapidly changing local and national educational landscape.

You will be able to demonstrate that you have the skills and the track record to maintain the excellent relationship that exists with both staff and students, whilst setting challenging goals that motivate and foster continued improvement.

The successful candidate will possess strong intellectual abilities, first class strategic and communication skills, and a substantial track record of senior leadership gained as a Head, Deputy or Assistant Headteacher. In return you will have the opportunity to build on our solid foundations and be part of shaping the future success of Hasmonean Girls’ School.

We welcome applications from current Headteachers/Principals, Deputy Headteachers/Assistant Headteachers.

Hasmonean are committed to appointing the very best possible candidate regardless of their age; whether or not they are pregnant; whether or not they are disabled; their marital status; their race, colour or nationality, ethnic or national origin; their religion, belief or lack of religion/belief; their sex; or their sexual orientation.

“In common with many members of the staff body, I am not Jewish but it has been the most enormous privilege to get to know and understand something of the richness of orthodox Judaism and to work alongside colleagues who seek in a profound way to follow the tenets of their faith in all aspects of their lives. It was a steep learning curve when I arrived but it has enriched my own life immensely. The whole school community is very welcoming and the family atmosphere, which Ofsted picked up on, was evident from the start. I will always be grateful for the opportunities I gained from being Headteacher at Hasmonean”
Mrs Brice, Current Headteacher
