Located just outside Chelmsford city centre and well connected to London, it is set in 70 acres of stunning parkland and heritage gardens, dominated by the former Tudor Palace of Beaulieu.

Pioneering since its foundation, New Hall has continued to innovate under the dynamic leadership of the Principal, Mrs Katherine Jeffrey – establishing the New Hall Multi Academy Trust (NHMAT) and becoming sponsor of nearby Messing Primary School in 2012; and acquiring an additional 70-acre site in 2023.

The ideal candidate will bring a demonstrable track record in strategic marketing, communications and brand management gained from within or outside education and will have an instinctive appreciation of the independent schools’ sector, as well as New Hall’s Catholic ethos and local community roots.
