We are a five form, mixed, selective school graded Outstanding in all categories by Ofsted in April 2012 and whose boarding operation was also graded Outstanding in January 2018. The School is proud of its reputation for being inclusive, friendly and welcoming and one that focuses as much on the development of the whole person as much as it does on their academic progress.


The school is situated in a beautiful area of Kent, near the coast and several delightful seaside towns. House prices in Sandwich and the local area are significantly lower than those in most other areas of the South East, yet St Pancras International is just over an hour away and the channel crossings at Dover and Ashford are within 30 minutes.

We are seeking an enthusiastic and well-qualified specialist to join this highly effective and experienced department. The successful candidate will be working in a thriving, supportive department. There is the possibility of continuing the maternity cover from 1 September 2020 until the provisionally return of the post holder in March 2021, but the contract from September would be for 3 days a week, 0.6 FTE, not full time.

Information about the school

Sir Roger Manwood’s School is a mixed grammar school for students aged 11-18. The school was granted Academy status on 1 March 2011. We have 1007 students in total, 260 in the Sixth Form and 55 boarders. In September 2014, the school began an expansion from being a 4 form entry to a 5 form entry. The school is set in particularly attractive grounds and has excellent facilities.

The school was inspected by OfSTED in April 2012. The inspectors judged the school to be outstanding in every respect. In the achievement of the pupils, in the quality of the teaching, in the behaviour and safety of the pupils, in leadership and management and in the overall effectiveness of the school the judgements of the Inspection team were in every case the top grade.

Academic results are consistently of a very high standard. As a result we appear prominently in the national league tables. The vast majority of our Sixth Formers go on to the most competitive universities including Oxford, Cambridge, UCL, Kings and Warwick. The extra-curricular life of the school is a very striking feature of life at Manwood’s.

There is an exceptionally wide range of sporting and cultural activities which all attract high levels of participation. There are also imaginative international ties, including those with schools in Germany, China, the Gambia and India.

The school has a warm, friendly atmosphere. The care, guidance and support offered is outstanding and is much appreciated by students and parents alike. The mixed nature of the school and its boarding element help to create a family ethos which helps to make the school as successful as it is.
