What the school offers its staff

Harefield School is an 11-18 comprehensive school. In our most recent Ofsted inspection in September 2021, the inspector reported that: “The school was graded Good in all areas, the inspector reported that: “Pupils have a strong sense of right and wrong. They learn about equality and diversity through the programme for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE). Pupils have high aspirations for their futures. They behave well in lessons, with minimal disruption to learning”. As a smaller than average school, we can get to know each student well and respond effectively to their learning needs as a result. Similarly, our staff work together in a collaborative, supportive and cohesive way with common purpose. We offer a comprehensive programme of continued professional development for teachers at all levels across the school, through numerous collaborative networks within the borough and externally. This is an exciting time for Harefield School as we continue to go from strength to strength and we would welcome applications from dynamic individuals with a drive to make a difference for the young people in our care. Harefield School is seeking to recruit a dynamic and innovative teacher of English with a TLR. The candidate will be required to help create an exceptional place of learning and ensure that teaching, learning and progress are consistently at a high standard, as well as the ability to robustly monitor data and have high expectations of all students.
