The Sele SchoolHertfordshire

The Sele School has an open vacancy for the post of Head of Department in Science as part of our science revamp strategy. The Sele School is a rapidly growing secondary school and its Ethos - Non Ducor Duco: I am not led, I lead - is a lived experience in our community.


We are seeking a dynamic, ambitious individual who is excited about building their own team to lead on their vision of a science curriculum for the 21st century. We view education as a transformative process and if you feel you have the discipline and work ethic to teach at the highest level; have a passion for inspiring students to study science to A level and beyond, and wish to be better than you are today, then The Sele School is the place for you.


The learning climate is impeccable and the culture of driving up standards is upheld by all who attend The Sele School. We offer our staff a comprehensive CPD programme with opportunities to visit our partner schools such as The Perse School in Cambridge. We are also embarking on a 5 year ICT strategy to incorporate VR into the classroom so that abstract and complex structures can be experienced by our students using immersive educational tools. 


If you wish to learn more about the school, please feel free to view the videos on our school website which can be found on the “About Us – School Vision and Ethos” and “Science Curriculum” page.


We understand some may wish to see the school in action. If you wish to visit the school or meet on Teams, please contact the Head’s PA on the email provided below, due to Covid-19, special measures need to take place. The interviews will take place on school site and will be Covid secure.
