Thank you for your interest in the post of SEMH HLTA at Ashlyns School. This is a new role created in our growing department to support the needs of students. We are seeking to recruit a creative, inspirational, and experienced individual. We are looking to recruit either an experienced HLTA or an experienced TA who is seeking an opportunity to support their career ambitions to become an HLTA.

The information linked to our recruitment page below will give you an insight into our school, the high aspirations we have for our students, and the excellent support and opportunities given to staff.  

Ashlyns is a popular and oversubscribed school.  We became a full secondary school in September 2013 following the re-organisation of the education provision in Berkhamsted and now have over 1,400 students. The school has undergone significant refurbishment with continuing improvements in progress following the school’s expansion to eight forms of entry.  This is an exciting time to join our school and make your impression as we continue to grow and build on our success.

The school was rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted in May 2018 and is focused on continuous improvement with the aspiration to be rated ‘Outstanding’ at our next inspection.  View our Ofsted report here.

Ashlyns is a thriving school with a rich heritage. Originally established for the most vulnerable in society, the school continues to emphasise the traditional values of respect, honesty, and hard work. These values, combined with high expectations, innovation, and creativity, mean that Ashlyns is a school that encourages and helps students to develop and make the most of their abilities and interests.

If you want to provide outstanding learning opportunities for students within a forward-thinking, hard-working school community, we would like to hear from you. We welcome visits from prospective candidates prior to application; please contact our HR Officer, Clare Richardson, on 01442 863 605 to arrange a tour.
