We are looking for an inspirational and approachable leader, passionate about providing excellence in education, to lead the College on the next stage of its journey.

 ‘Inspiring knowledgeable, enquiring and caring global citizens through excellence in education’

We would like to hear from you if you share our vision, ethos and commitment to valuing each child as an individual – providing opportunities for all to achieve within a nurturing environment.

As a state day and boarding school, offering the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma as the sole study option post sixteen, with the Middle Years Programme and GCSEs being followed in the lower years, this role will be both challenging and rewarding. If you aren’t familiar with the IB Diploma or haven’t worked within a boarding environment don’t be put off. As long as you possess the ambition and qualities we are looking for we still want to hear from you. You will be supported by a dedicated Governing Body, SLT, teaching staff, operational team and students with an excellent and open attitude to learning.

Hockerill Anglo-European College has been consistently ranked in the top tier of UK state schools for a number of years and was in the Top 10 Comprehensive Schools in The Sunday Times Schools Guide 2024.  The College is set on an extensive and attractive parkland campus within 30 minutes of both London and Cambridge.

If you are interested in the exciting proposition to lead Hockerill Anglo-European College and would like to find out more, we would encourage you to join us at one of our open mornings where governors will be able to provide an overview of our unique setting and answer any questions you may have.
