As we open our primary phase of Saint George’s School an exciting opportunity has arisen for a candidate of exceptional ability to join our team as the Early Years/KS1 leader in this over-subscribed and successful all through provision.

The school has an existing reputation for high quality education with a relentless focus upon high expectations and aspirations.

We are a friendly, dynamic and innovative school and pride ourselves on our commitment to ensuring student progress through high quality teaching and learning provision for all. The successful applicant will share these values and play an active part in delivering on this commitment.

We would love to hear from you if you:

  • want to be involved from the very beginning in shaping and developing outstanding learning experiences to enable all children to thrive
  • want to work in a supportive and caring environment
  • are committed to enabling every student to achieve the very best they can
  • are an ambitious professional
  • are a good/outstanding classroom practitioner

Information about the school

Saint George's Church of England School is a popular wide ability school for boys and girls. It is located in pleasant green fields and is within easy reach of the A2/M2 motorway with excellent transport links to London. In 2016 it was the most oversubscribed high school in Kent.

Saint George’s Church of England School converted to Academy status in November 2011 and is a founder member of the Aletheia Anglican Academies Trust formed in December 2014.

The school recently underwent a section 8 inspection (February 2017) and was considered to have remained 'Good' overall with 'Outstanding' for Leadership and Management; continued improvement since the last inspection was also recognised. I recommend it to you as a friendly community, where an energetic, willing, supportive staff work enthusiastically and collaboratively to enable students to excel.

We are delighted that we have been able to expand our age range to open a new primary department on site, making Saint George's an all through school from 4-18 from September 2019.
