Dear Prospective Colleague,
Thank you for taking an interest in applying for a position at Hendon School. Hendon School is currently graded ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted (Nov 2011).
“They [students] respect and value cultural diversity and gain an excellent insight in the lives, experiences and beliefs of others through first-hand experiences and their openness to new ideas. The school provides an excellent learning environment. A strong sense of ambition is underpinned by a very caring ethos.” (Ofsted).
71% of students achieved 5 A*-Cs including Maths and English (2015), an incredible achievement in our truly inclusive school that demonstrates our continuing commitment to high standards of teaching and learning.
We are an ambitious school and welcome applications from staff who are passionate about being part of a thriving community.
We have an excellent support package in place for NQT’s wishing to apply.
We look forward to receiving your application.
Ms Rhona Povey
SUPPORT STAFF VACANCIES
Hendon School is an ambitious 'Outstanding' School and can offer:
• Excellent resources

Hendon School is a family – albeit a very large and diverse family – and we celebrate that. We are stronger because of our differences and because of the way that we work together.
At Hendon School we work in partnership with parents, the local community and other schools, both in England and with our partner schools in South Africa, Japan and Nepal. We are part of the Compton Teaching Alliance with whom we work to provide high quality training opportunities for new teachers and established staff and are members of PiXL and SSAT Leading Edge.
Recently we were honoured to be invited to join the Mayors Gold Club, which allows us to share good practice with other London schools. We work closely with our local feeder primary schools, both as part of our high involvement transition programme and also to enrich and inspire younger students.
We are passionate about education and about working with our young people to give them the best opportunities and to help them to be ready for the next stage of their life. We take good care of them and work with them to unlock their potential.
