Thank you for your interest in Chancellor’s School.



You would be joining at an exciting time in the school’s history. Chancellor's is an inclusive school with exceptional academic results. We remain determined to strengthen our teaching and learning culture, and to make further improvements in the future.



We continue to be significantly oversubscribed with increasing numbers in our sixth form. Students make extremely good progress during their time at the school, and there are an impressive number of students who achieve the very top grades.



We are focused on achieving the very best for every member of the school community and we expect standards to rise further in the future. We joined the Danes Educational Trust in 2019 and this has helped create further exciting and varied opportunities for both staff and students.



We were also inspected by Ofsted (September 2018) and, whilst we remain rated as ‘Good’, there was a clear acknowledgement of the impact of the school’s work of late and the progress we have made since the previous Ofsted. I am pleased that, as part of the Danes Educational Trust, we have taken further strides forward.



It is a privilege to be the Headteacher of Chancellor’s School. It is a positive and rewarding place to work with a strong sense of community. Teachers are respected and valued not only by the Senior Leadership Team, but by students, parents and governors. Visitors often remark at how delightful our students are. Not only are they keen to learn, they are friendly, ambitious, proud of their school and eager to take on responsibility.



The highly professional staff is dedicated and focused on the core business of the school, teaching and learning. The governors and I are committed to the well-being and continuing professional development of all members of staff.



You can visit our website on www.chancellors.herts.sch.uk for further information about the school including the school prospectus. If you would like to organise a visit to the school or if you would like to discuss any position in more detail then please contact Dawn Gamble (Recruitment Manager) at recruitment@danesedtrust.org.uk.
