Are you an inspirational and creative teacher looking for a challenge?

Drapers Mills Primary Academy in Margate is on an exciting journey. We are looking to add to our already successful team who have taken the school out of Special Measures to become a Good school with outstanding features (Ofsted, 2018).

This enables the school to offer excellent CPD and training opportunities and uses a highly effective coaching/mentoring approach to develop its staff. We believe in a culture of partnering for performance and work closely with other TKAT academies and Thanet schools.
