Chigwell School is seeking a well-qualified, energetic and committed Head of Psychology to join our highly successful school.

 Psychology, although relatively recently introduced as an A level, has proved very popular and successful. The department has a large bank of resources. The syllabus taught is an interesting specification to deliver and Chigwell students are genuinely eager to learn. As Head of Department, the successful candidate will have responsibility for the promotion of their subject, the organisation and teaching of the material and for ensuring the learning is positive and effective. 

Chigwell School is located in the picturesque village of Chigwell just 10 miles from central London and on the Central Line. Close to the edge of Epping Forest, we enjoy over 100 acres of beautiful grounds. As well as being a leading academic school, it has a growing reputation, locally and nationally, for its sport, music and drama. We endeavour to provide an all-round education to girls and boys from the ages of four to eighteen years (Pre-Prep Reception–Year 2, Junior School Years 3-8 and Senior School Years 9-13). Pupils are enthusiastic, co-operative and able, and colleagues get on well together. There is a well-developed sense of community.

Although Chigwell is predominantly a day school, there are some thirty Sixth Form boarders who are mainly from overseas; from a dozen or so different countries. They add a real international flavour to our community. 

We offer a competitive salary and benefits package. In addition, the School provides a friendly and supportive working environment. There is a well-developed programme of professional development, pupils are enthusiastic, co-operative and able, and colleagues get on well together. There is a strong sense of community.
