Do you want to make a real difference to young people? Do you have a strong sense of moral purpose and want a challenging, yet fulfilling job? If you have answered yes then we are the school for you.

The Royal Harbour Academy is looking to appoint an Assistant Headteacher to join our supportive, collaborative and innovative leadership team. Our mission is to improve our students’ lives through the transformative nature of education and we are well on the way to becoming the great community school we want to be. There is still, however, plenty of work to do and we need someone who is hard working, proactive and is keen to have a whole school impact to help lead the school onto the next part of our journey.

Information about the school

The Royal Harbour Academy is a mixed, non-selective 11-18 foundation school of 900 students on the border of the lovely coastal towns of Ramsgate and Broadstairs in South East Kent.

The school is at an exciting time of its development having been formed out of the amalgamation of two schools in 2015. The school is arranged over a split site with Years 7 and 8 on our Newlands Lane site and Year 9 along with Key Stages 4 and 5 at our Marlowe Way premises.

We are an International Baccalaureate Organisation World School and run International Baccalaureate programmes for our 6th Form and Key Stage 3 students. Our Lower Site broadly follows a primary school structure with students having fewer teachers and a strong focus on literacy and numeracy progression.

We are in the process of formally academising and work closely with our Coastal Academy Trust partner schools which include Dane Court Grammar School and Cliftonville Primary School. The school is making tremendous progress and it is an exciting time to join our team. Our most recent Ofsted inspection gave glowing praise about the school, judging behaviour, personal development and the 6th Form as good.
