Staff Vacancies

Henlow is a highly popular and successful, purpose-built Academy located in an attractive rural setting in the middle of Bedfordshire. It is one of the 134 Church schools within the Diocese of St. Albans. The Governing Body recently voted in favour of converting to become an Academy, and converted to Academy Status on 1st April 2012.

The catchment area of the School covers the Parishes of Henlow (including Henlow Camp), Clifton, Langford and Meppershall. We work very closely with the five lower schools located in those villages, from whom we receive most of our children. We also have good, collaborative working with the other lower, middle and upper schools within our Learning Community.

As a school, Henlow has high expectations and sets very high standards. Our mission statement is “Aiming for Excellence”. We aim to provide a caring, safe, happy environment in which children’s learning can be nurtured; and in which all staff can work effectively as part of a friendly and supportive team.

We are proud of Henlow Church of England Academy’s ethos and of our values of Honesty, Enthusiasm, Nurture, Love, Originality and Wisdom, which underpin all activities and relationships within our school and our community.
