The Governors wish to appoint an experienced, charismatic leader who is passionate about achieving excellence in teaching and learning and who has clear evidence of their impact in raising standards.  The person appointed will have the personality, ambition and drive to carry the whole school community towards an exciting and successful future. 

In return, we offer:

  • A strong team of enthusiastic, high performing and dedicated staff
  • Students who are a delight to work with

        "Highly positive relationships among students and between staff and  students create a calm, friendly and purposeful place of work" 

        “Behaviour and safety of pupils is outstanding as are their attitudes to learning”  Ofsted

  • Brand new school buildings opened in 2016, providing an exceptional learning environment 
  • A governing body which is active in the life of the school, approachable and supportive

Informal visits to the school are welcome by prior arrangement with Mrs Shurle Woodhouse, PA to the Headteacher.  Contact details email woodhouses@kls.herts.sch.uk and telephone 01923 264504 extension 205.
