We are graded Good by Ofsted in September 2022.

Our students are bright, able and eager to learn, and due to our environment of excellent behaviour, teachers are able to teach their subjects to a high level.  The School is situated in a beautiful area of Kent, close to both coast and rolling countryside. It is also close to the channel crossings at Dover and Ashford and has very good connections to London via the High Speed rail route to Kings Cross and the A2/M2 by car.
