Working for Hinchingbrooke School 

Hinchingbrooke is an outstandingly beautiful school.  Set in acres of grounds and adjoining a country park, Hinchingbrooke House was formerly the family home of the Cromwells and of the Earls of Sandwich. 

We have a magnificent range of much more modern purpose-built facilities, such as a swimming pool, an all-weather sports pitch, a Performing Arts Centre and designated subject suites.  Extra-curricular activities (music, drama, sport and Duke of Edinburgh) are a much valued feature of the school and we seek to appoint teachers willing to help maintain this tradition. A fitness suite is available for staff use.

Our focus lies very much in the area of teaching and learning and believe that this must be at the heart of all our developmental work as we seek to fulfil the potential of each and every one of our students.‚Äč


We are committed to the professional development of all staff.  We have staff involved in studying for higher degrees, the National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH) and the leadership and management training course led by the LEA, paid for by the school. We run a full ECT induction course.  All of this is in addition to regular opportunities for staff to participate in subject, pastoral and other training.
