Horsforth School is seeking to appoint a Head Chef to work closely with our Executive Chef to deliver the school’s catering provision. This is an exciting opportunity to prepare fantastic freshly prepared meals, sandwiches, salads, desserts and other products to students and staff. What’s more, you’ll also help maintain the kitchen to the highest possible standards and at times be a front of house presence.

This is an extremely responsible position and the successful candidate must be hardworking, energetic and reliable and have the ability to deal with issues using their own initiative as they arise whilst also working as part of a team.

For our 1500 students, Horsforth School provides an engaging environment of discovery and growth. For our colleagues too, this setting offers some great benefits. Located in north-west Leeds, the school is just five miles from the city centre with its thriving retail, leisure and cultural facilities, yet on the edge of open countryside. York, Harrogate and the Dales are within easy reach.

GCSE and A Level results are consistently well above the national averages and in 2022 the school had the best A Level results in the whole of Leeds. Horsforth School was also named one of the top schools in Yorkshire in The Sunday Times Parent Power Guide in 2022.
