Hadlow Rural Community School (HRCS) opened in September 2013 and offers a unique educational opportunity to students in Hadlow itself and across the wider local area. It is sponsored by and situated on the 630 acre campus of Hadlow College, the outstanding land-based college.  

Hadlow Rural Community School is a popular, oversubscribed School with a current roll of 250 students, increasing to 375 in 2018. The School has recently relocated to a £7million new build and is developing a strong reputation both locally and beyond for enabling its young people to excel and flourish; providing an exciting, vibrant and dynamic experience in academic and land based vocational studies.

We are looking to appoint a self-motivated, innovative and exceptional Head of English who has the necessary ambition and expertise to play a key part in the future success of the School.
