Information about the school

Saint George’s CE School is a thriving educational setting that has served the children of Gravesend since the 17th century. The school is relatively unique as a co-educational, Anglican and an all-through (4-18) school. The school is a warm, caring and highly inclusive place where all members of the community are cared for and valued. The primary phase was added to the school in 2019. Prior to this the secondary phase first became an academy in 2011 and later, in 2014, was one of three founding schools of the Aletheia Academies Trust. The Trust now has 11 schools, 10 of which are primary and the school benefits from the work of the Best Practice Teams in all key areas of school life. The all through school has been inspected once so far under a Section 48, (SIAMS) wherein the effectiveness, character and ethos of the school was judged to be ‘Excellent’ in all areas. The 2 most recent Ofsted inspections have judged the school to be ‘Good’ with outstanding leadership and management. Both phases are significantly oversubscribed and operate lengthy waiting lists.

The site has been greatly developed and refurbished over the recent years. In addition to the new primary phase building the site has benefited from a new science building, a floodlit 3G sports facility and a £6 million secondary building housing the 6th form, performing arts and core subjects. All facilities are accessible to the entire school community regardless of Key Stage. Some staff teach and support across both phases and subject leaders from all phases work closely together to ensure that there is a cohesive curriculum experience for all pupils during their school journey from Key stage 1 to Key Stage 4 and 5.

Aletheia Academies Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff, volunteers, governors and Trustees to share this commitment. All successful candidates will be subject to an enhanced DBS check along with other relevant employment checks, including overseas criminal background checks where applicable.  Our policy statement on the recruitment of ex-offenders can be found on our website. All new employees, volunteers, governors and Trustees will be required to undertake safeguarding training on induction which will be regularly updated in line with statutory guidance.
