St Joseph’s Primary, Broadstairs is a Catholic primary academy and part of the Kent Catholic Schools’ Partnership (KCSP), a multi-academy trust (MAT) established by the Archdiocese of Southwark for Catholic education across Kent.  Currently a MAT comprising 24 academies (19 primary and 5 secondary), KCSP is seeking to appoint an inspirational and dedicated Academy Principal from September 2022 due to the retirement of the current post-holder.  

Reporting to the Executive Principal, the Academy Principal will be responsible for the day-to-day leadership and management of the academy and will lead a team that strive together for children under the academy’s motto of “ Aim high, achieve together”.

The successful applicant will take the lead role in providing inspirational Catholic education based on our shared Gospel values, and will be seen by pupils, parents and carers, and the wider parish as the person directing their learning, and as the academy’s pastoral leader.  We are therefore seeking to appoint a practicing Catholic to this role.

St Joseph’s, Broadstairs is an inclusive academy. Its dedicated staff, helpers and governance committee members work hard to ensure that every student is supported and challenged to be their very best. In an atmosphere of mutual respect, trust and care, the St Joseph’s team work together in the spirit of the Gospel to serve the local community, wider parish and the Archdiocese as a whole. Each individual is encouraged to grow spiritually and intellectually, so that unique and positive contributions can be made to society and the world.

St Joseph’s is a one-form entry primary academy located in Broadstairs, serving the Parish of Our Lady Star of the Sea, Broadstairs and the local area. Its most recent denominational inspection in October 2016 judged it as ‘Outstanding’ and its most recent Ofsted inspection in March 2017 judged the academy to be ‘Good’ in all areas.
