Student Development Leader


School Pay Band 6 Point 17-20

Salary: £20,849-£22,870 (pro rata)

Actual Salary- £18449-£20237

37 hours per week. Term Time plus three weeks


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 believe that qualifications are what girls get; they do not define who they are and will play only a part in shaping the people they become. Our academic curriculum therefore is only a part of what we do.


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 are looking for a flexible, caring , kind individual who will be responsible for the pastoral care, emotional well-being, behaviour and achievement of our Y12 & Y13 students. You will look after, support and celebrate them all.


You will need great people skills, reserves of resilience and enthusiasm and a capacity for sustained hard work. Perhaps most importantly, you will be positive, optimistic and have a can-do attitude to anything that will benefit FSG Girls!


You can find out all about our school and about our unique school vision and ethos via our school website.
