North West Kent Alternative Provision Service


School Description

NWKAPS is an alternative provision for students who might otherwise face exclusion from mainstream school. Our small pupil numbers mean you can make a real difference to pupil’s learning and life chances once they finish school: over 96% of last year’s students successfully achieved their choice of post-16 destination. By mainstream standards, our teachers have tiny class sizes and plenty of PPA time to prepare high quality lessons. We have a sensible marking policy, three data drops a year, a behaviour policy that’s supported by an active, visible SLT, and we put student and staff wellbeing first in everything we do.

We focus on students’ learning and the quality of our teaching, with CPD, career development and instructional coaching for every teacher, lesson observations that are about improvement not judgement, and a focus on evidence-based teaching in classrooms.

Our students study GCSES as well as a range of Level 2 qualifications and vocational courses in a large, bright, well equipped school building with several purpose built spaces including a beauty salon, workshop, sensory room, and best of all for busy teachers, a coffee shop with an industry standard coffee machine.

NWKAPS is part of Alternative Learning Trust.
