The Governors of Immanuel College invite applications for the role of Head from September 2022 or January 2023.
Immanuel College is a highly successful co-educational Jewish day school located in a leafy suburb of Hertfordshire within easy reach of North London. The College has grown significantly over recent years and now educates some 700 pupils aged 4 – 18 years. Immanuel has built a strong reputation and, with demonstrably impressive ‘added value’, has exceeded expectations in terms of its exam results, although not at the expense of the pupils’ welfare, which has continued as a central pillar of its approach. Following this period of growth and educational advancement, Immanuel is now planning towards a period of significant development which will include a substantial building and refurbishment programme over the coming years.
The Head will play a pivotal role, working alongside the Board of Governors, in realising the long term aims and objectives for the future development of the College at this exciting time. The Head will be strategically and commercially minded as the facilitator of sustainable change, working collaboratively and openly in a way which builds trust and confidence across the school and the wider community.
This is an excellent opportunity for an outstanding candidate who is aspirational and ambitious. The successful candidate will bring a proven track record of leadership and management experience. A commitment to the values and mission of the College and a collaborative and enabling style of leadership will be key elements. The next Head of Immanuel College is not required to be a member of the Jewish community although will need to work closely within it in alignment with the school’s values and future ambitions.

Thank you for helping to make Jewish News the leading source of news and opinion for the UK Jewish community. Today we're asking for your invaluable help to continue putting our community first in everything we do.
Unlike other Jewish media, we do not charge for content. That won’t change. Because we are free, we rely on advertising to cover our costs. This vital lifeline, which has dropped in recent years, has fallen further due to coronavirus.
For as little as £5 a month you can help sustain the vital work we do in celebrating and standing up for Jewish life in Britain.
Jewish News holds our community together and keeps us connected. Like a synagogue, it’s where people turn to feel part of something bigger. It also proudly shows the rest of Britain the vibrancy and rich culture of modern Jewish life.
You can make a quick and easy one-off or monthly contribution of £5, £10, £20 or any other sum you’re comfortable with.
100% of your donation will help us continue celebrating our community, in all its dynamic diversity...
Being a community platform means so much more than producing a newspaper and website. One of our proudest roles is media partnering with our invaluable charities to amplify the outstanding work they do to help us all.
There’s no shortage of oys in the world but Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate the joys too, through projects like Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other compelling countdowns that make the community kvell with pride.
In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.
Royal Mail issued a stamp honouring Holocaust hero Sir Nicholas Winton after a Jewish News campaign attracted more than 100,000 backers. Jewish Newsalso produces special editions of the paper highlighting pressing issues including mental health and Holocaust remembrance.
In an age when news is readily accessible, Jewish News provides high-quality content free online and offline, removing any financial barriers to connecting people.
Voice of our community to wider society
The Jewish News team regularly appears on TV, radio and on the pages of the national press to comment on stories about the Jewish community. Easy access to the paper on the streets of London also means Jewish News provides an invaluable window into the community for the country at large.
We hope you agree all this is worth preserving.
