Job Description

Chelmsford County High School for Girls is one of the most successful girls’ selective schools in the country.  This post is therefore, an exciting opportunity to join a thriving and dynamic environment focussed on educating highly able girls.

Our Headteacher, Nicole Chapman, has decided to retire after 12 years of outstanding leadership and vision.

The Governors wish to appoint an experienced, ambitious, energetic headteacher with a deep understanding of the ethos of our selective girls’ school.  Our over-arching vision is “Developing the Leaders of Tomorrow” with the aims of striving for excellence in all we do, achieving individual potential, whilst contributing to the local and global community.

CCHS has been a single Academy Trust since 2011.  We regularly work with a number of primary and secondary schools on an informal basis.  These links are important and we seek to appoint an outward looking headteacher who will strengthen our work within our community and beyond.  Our school expanded by one form of entry in 2015 and we will reach our current full capacity in 2021.
