Meet Headteacher Neil Hassell

Meet Headteacher Neil Hassell

Neil became the headteacher of The Hemel Hempstead School in September 2018 and has been surprised and delighted with what Hertfordshire and Herts for Learning have to offer in support, training and development.

“I have worked in four authorities, in maintained schools and academies, in standalone settings and in one of the largest multi-academy trusts in the country. Herts for Learning (HfL) is by far the best support structure I have experienced.

Because HfL is school-owned and run by proven school and system leaders, its focus is right where it should be: on training, services, advice and support that allows headteachers to maximise impact and outcomes in their schools.

Hertfordshire is a great place to work. On the one hand thriving modern towns, great road and rail links to London and further afield, yet an area of natural beauty with fantastic sporting and outdoor facilities and spaces.

As a teacher in Hertfordshire, you get the full diversity of a truly comprehensive intake with young people who have a thirst for knowledge and an energy to succeed. I genuinely cannot see myself now working anywhere else”.
