School Description

Goldwyn is an outstanding and unique secondary (11-18) SEMH special school in Kent, operating over 4 sites in Ashford and Folkestone, with each site running its own distinctive educational pathway.

We are a highly regarded and successful school which has expanded its provision to meet the needs of our increasingly complex and vulnerable students.

Following an internal restructuring, we are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic and committed strategic leader to work with the Principal to maintain the outstanding provision we have created, whilst seeking to develop innovative and exemplary practice within SEMH education.

Goldwyn School is a KCC Foundation Special School for children and young people with an EHCP for SEMH needs from age 11 to 18. Students who are admitted to the school have complex and wide ranging difficulties and come from a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds and a wide geographical area.

Goldwyn School is an Outstanding School (Ofsted 2022) for students with SEMH needs, and consists of: • Goldwyn Ashford in Great Chart, Ashford (TN23 3BT) • Goldwyn Folkestone in Parkfield Road, Folkestone (CT19 5BY) • Goldwyn Vocational Centre in Leacon Road, Ashford, Kent (TN23 4FB) • Goldwyn Plus in Beaver Lane, Ashford (TN23 5NX) (our alternative curriculum programme)

Why Work at Goldwyn: • “Goldwyn is a family; a truly supportive unit” – School Governor • We are values driven – they are not words on a page, they are core to our school and its ethos • We have a strong and dynamic leadership team who support each other and who offer an extensive level of coaching and expertise • Our staff are our secret weapon – without a staff that feel supported and invested in, we cannot offer our students the very best education.
