United Learning are delighted to have opened a new school in Ashford. Chilmington Green School is a new secondary school which opened in September 2023 with its first cohort of 120 Year 7 students. At capacity, the school will be a six-form entry, co-educational, non-selective secondary with a 240-place 6th form. We are currently looking for excellent, highly motivated staff, with the vision and aspiration to be a part of a school from its opening through to its first A-level results day; bringing to life the United Learning ethos of the Best in Everyone through a curriculum, culture, environment, and structure that provides an exceptional educational offer for local young people.
