Current job vacancies
I am delighted to inform you that, subject to the usual checks, Mr Ben Stitchman has accepted the post offered by Governors of being our Headteacher from September 2018.
Mr Stichman is a current Headteacher of a securely ‘Good’ school. Along with colleagues, he built the heart of his current school. The beating heart of Holmfirth High School and its wider community will be treasured and further developed by our new Headteacher.
Students, support staff, teachers and Governors all participated in the appointment process and were central to the well-planned and rigorous process.
Be assured, Holmfirth High School is the place to be and we look forward to the appointments we will make in the weeks leading to the Spring Bank break that will complete our staff team ready for September.
Don’t forget …. your school is the best!
