About Harris Academy Chafford Hundred 

Discover your potential and help us transform children’s lives together

We’re not your average school – we provide our children with an education that combines academic success with good character building to give them the best chance to flourish when they leave us. We are a school for the future, and it all starts with our talented and dedicated team.

We are committed to being the best that we can be. 140 people come to work each day and deliver a wonderful experience for our students. We want to sustain a long-term career in education; we believe in working hard but taking care of one another, and having a flexible approach to work, all while enjoying the rewards of watching our students thrive.

Whether you’re a teacher, leader, or support staff member, we’re all one team with a shared purpose, and shared values. We’re curious to improve; not because we’re not good enough but because we know we can be even better. We want to give you opportunities to grow and succeed, so we offer development at all levels. Whether that be supporting you through your degree or helping you to secure your first leadership opportunity, we can make it happen. 

We care deeply about creating an inclusive environment for our staff and students, and we encourage candidates from all different backgrounds and identities to apply. 

We’re proud to be part of the Harris Federation, the most successful large multi-academy trust in the country. And with our growing presence in the East Quadrant, where we are expanding in Thurrock and beyond, there’s never been a better time to join us!
