Founded in 1642, New Hall School is a thriving co-educational boarding and day school for up to 1,500 students aged 1 to 18 and is the largest Catholic boarding and day school in the UK. 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.

Building on these strong foundations, New Hall School is now looking ahead to a period of growth and development and is seeking to appoint its first Director of Communications, Marketing & Admissions. This is a pivotal new leadership role on the Executive Team, reporting directly to the Principal. It will be suited to a senior marketing and communications professional, excited by the opportunity to help shape a new vision and ambitious strategy for this highly successful school. As an ambassador for New Hall, the Director will deputise for the Principal at external events and will bring energy and flair to enhance the School's profile locally, nationally and internationally, increasing student applications in new markets.

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.

Information about the School

New Hall is a Catholic independent boarding & day school for girls and boys aged 1-18. New Hall School operates the highly successful 'diamond model', where students are educated in co-educational classes from ages 1 to 11 and at Sixth Form. However, from ages 11 to 16 they are taught in single-sex lessons. Click on one of the four diamonds below to find out more about our divisions.

The main benefits of the 'diamond model' and five years of single-sex teaching, derive from the ability to tailor pastoral and academic provision more sensitively and expertly to the needs of young people going through the physical, emotional and social upheaval of adolescence. Young teenagers are liberated from the negative peer pressure of having to perform in mixed classes. The gender stereotyping of subjects is also removed. Girls and boys follow an identical curriculum and do not learn to perceive subjects as being more suited to either girls or boys.

The Sixth Form experience at New Hall is about expanding students' horizons, both in their specialist areas of study and, more generally, in terms of their personal development.

From the moment New Hall students first travel up the mile-long, tree-lined avenue that leads to the grand façade of the former Tudor palace, they will be given individual opportunities to grow, learn, be challenged and to develop into confident young men and women. New Hall is set in an idyllic and convenient location, on the outskirts of the City of Chelmsford, Essex, just 30 minutes by train from London and within easy reach of all major London airports.

As a Catholic independent boarding & day school, at New Hall with every student we aim to educate the whole person: academically, creatively and socially, in a community which also nurtures the spiritual dimensions of human life.

All appointments are subject to safer recruitment requirements to ensure the safeguarding of children and young people. All positions will involve appropriate checks and clearances.
