About Hartsdown Academy

Help children make their dreams reality and put an end to wasted potential. A child from a disadvantaged background is much less likely to get good GCSES and go on to higher education. The impact of this lasts a lifetime. The number of children in poverty continues to increase and Thanet is one of the poorest areas in the UK.

Hartsdown refuses to accept that a child’s past and circumstances define their future and are looking for people who are committed to ensuring that every child has an education that gives them an amazing life.

We believe:
• that education is the key to a successful and fulfilled life
• that success is determined by effort and character
• that education is more than exams it is about supporting children to be curious and internationally minded citizen who love learning and want to improve the world
• that a great school changes lives

It is hard work at Hartsdown but you become part of a team that is committed to changing the world, one child at a time.

Our commitment to you In return for your commitment to our children we offer a supportive environment with opportunities for progression and development.
