Required for September 2019


We are a busy, vibrant and happy school – academically successful but driven to achieve much more. We believe that education must maintain a balance between intellect and character. An outstanding education is not either/or. It is both. We also believe that qualifications are what girls get; they do not define who girls are and will play only a part in shaping who they become.

At the Folkestone School for Girls, girls do not complete an excessive amount of qualifications. This allows them not only time to focus efforts on achieving the very best grades within these, but also time to participate in co-curricular activities and interests, both at school and at home.

There is time to spend with friends and family and time, too, to just be a child.

A justifiable balance between intellect and character.


We have good and improving facilities with a climbing wall, fitness suite, archery and mountain bikes (and bike trail) as recent additions.

A new Dance studio is soon to be constructed.

We are looking for a dynamic, enthusiastic and effective teacher is required to join our excellent PE department.
