The headship offers scope for you to develop and mature as an effective leader and teaching professional as this established and highly regarded school enters a period of exciting opportunity. Working with dedicated, committed staff, with informed interest and support from governors and parents, you’ll be able to make your mark, developing your career and our children in a nurturing environment with a friendly atmosphere.

The school promotes academic excellence, but it is a source of pride that Holland House pupils leave us well prepared to excel in other areas, being confident, articulate and with an enquiring attitude. Small class sizes enable pupils to learn in an adapted building with modernised extensions, decorated to stimulate their educational development. The atmosphere is positive, behaviour is conducive to study and our children smile; we believe that education should be fun.

Situated in North West London, Holland House serves a shifting demographic, increasing in numbers, so although oversubscribed, the challenge lies in enhancing its reputation to secure continued success.

Advantages include:

  • Opportunity to shape the leadership team through review and recruitment
  • Engaged school community, with high expectations and open to change
  • Very successful traditional curriculum on which to build in the future
  • Strong staff team ethos, a willingness to go that extra mile and a focus on the whole child
  • Well resourced school, financially secure with good supportive expertise on the board.

Candidates who respect tradition, but who can bring vision and lead change, will be welcomed. Your abilities to inspire confidence, balance nurture with authority, culture an innovative, positive approach and encourage achievement above and beyond expectations will serve you well in leading this School and its pupils to a bright future.

Application Procedure:

To obtain a candidate pack, discuss the role in confidence or book a visit, please contact our consultant Jacqueline Baker on 020 7336 8403 or email her
