We are looking to recruit a suitably qualified and professional individual to join our school in this exciting role at the earliest opportunity.

The school is one of the best schools in the country at outperforming expectations for their pupils and improving their future prospects. There is plenty that other schools could learn from Hasmonean High School’s success.” (Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT) 

Hasmonean Grammar School for Boys opened in 1929, with the aim of providing Jewish children with a first class Jewish and secular education, a view not commonly held at the time. In 1936 Hasmonean Grammar School for Girls opened and both schools absorbed refugees from Europe whilst continuing to provide education and stability for the children during these challenging times. In 1984 Hasmonean High was created via the amalgamation of Hasmonean Boys’ and Girls’ Schools, although each currently remains on its own site. 

Hasmonean has voluntary aided status and was one of the first Jewish schools to become an academy in October 2011.  We are consistently rated as one of the top non-selective state schools in the country.

Come and join our culturally diverse and friendly staff at Hasmonean.  We are an outstanding school with students who engage in their learning and enjoy being intellectually challenged. We require all our staff to respect the ethos of our Jewish school and are delighted to consider applications from candidates of all backgrounds.  

Our school is a thriving community with a nursery on site for staff. A privately run childcare facility is available on site for children aged 0-4. The nursery offers places at a competitive price with additional discounts for Hasmonean staff. The facility accepts the government’s childcare vouchers.

Our training and development programmes for staff are very highly regarded.
