Our School:

Goodwin Academy is a vibrant and engaging key stage 3-5 mixed academy based in the heart of Deal. Sponsored by the Thinking Schools Academy Trust, the school is part of a family of schools in Kent, Medway and Portsmouth. There are currently 17 academies in the trust including secondary and primary/junior academies. TSAT is a successful and rapidly growing trust, ranked as the highest performing academy trust in the country for 2018 at KS4. It has high expectations for all academies, setting ambitious targets for pupils learning and progress.

At Goodwin, we are committed to transforming the life chances of our students, ensuring that all are supported and encouraged to achieve their personal best. We deliver this through the BEST Agenda - ‘Be Your Best’ with BEST being an acronym for:

B = Brilliance, where students will be supported to be brilliant in everything they do. E = Enrichment, where students will encounter a variety of educational opportunities outside of the classroom. S = Society, where students will be encouraged to develop as responsible, active and informed world citizens, demonstrating mutual respect, empathy and community spirit. T = Thinking, where students will join a global community of thinkers. We pride ourselves on our caring and compassionate ethos, which enables our students to grow in a supportive atmosphere conductive to their development. Where students need additional support, we will look to meet their needs through our highly effective pastoral system.

The school has a thriving extra-curricular programme with many opportunities for students to grow their talents. In the sporting arena, the school has a wide range of very successful teams and have regular student productions, dance shows and exhibitions.

Ultimately, we aspire for our students to develop their academic and life skills, so that they become confident, well-rounded and contented individuals and are equipped and ready to be successful for the world of work and the challenges of the 21st Century.
