The School has an excellent reputation in the local community and was recognised by Ofsted under the new demanding Ofsted framework, in February 2020, as Good with outstanding features in Leadership & Management, Personal Development and Behaviour & Attitudes. It is an extremely exciting time to be joining the School; the School appointed a new Headteacher in January 2020 to work with the Executive Headteacher on the next phase of the School’s development.

Our focus is on achieving excellence in all that we do to support outstanding outcomes for all our students. This is evident in the way our community of students, parents, staff and governors all work together to provide an engaging learning environment so that each student thrives and achieves their full potential.

Subjects across the School benefit from having a team of highly competent and charismatic middle leaders.

Excellence in teaching and learning is at the heart of our school. In February 2021 the School was re-accredited for the 2nd time as an Advanced Thinking School in recognition of the outstanding work we do in cognitive education. A Thinking School is “A learning community in which all members share a common language; where thinking strategies and tools are used across the curriculum and teachers and students have sound understanding of metacognition; where all students are developing and demonstrating independent and cooperative learning skills; where the school generates high levels of achievement and an excitement and enthusiasm for learning” (Thinking Matters)

We are extremely proud to be the only Thinking School in Canterbury and East Kent and one of a few Advanced Thinking Schools in the UK.
