Northfleet School for Girls is a vibrant and caring school on a very exciting journey. We have been growing rapidly (46% increase in student roll since 2017) and we believe this is down to the following key areas:

- A clear aspirational vision which is shared by staff, students and parents
- A dedicated staffing team who really care
- A proven track record of year-on-year improvements in all areas, including exam results, destinations and attendance (pre-covid)
- Excellent student behaviour and a lovely community feel within the school

In March 2022 we had a very positive Ofsted inspection. Below are some of the observations made during the inspection:

"Pupils are polite, respectful, courteous and considerate”

“Relationships between pupils and their teachers are caring and supportive”

“Staff turnover is low because teachers enjoy working at the school”

“The responses to the staff survey show that staff are proud to be part of the school”

Northfleet School for Girls is a friendly school which values every individual as a professional member of the whole team.

Our vision is that all students should dream big and achieve. This is realised through staff, students and parents working closely together, having high expectations in all areas and enjoying the journey.

We are at a very exciting stage in our path to outstanding. Results have improved year on year and are now significantly above similar schools, student engagement is excellent and intake numbers are expanding rapidly at both Year 7 and Year 12. We were particularly excited to have opened our brand new dedicated Sixth Form building in January 2022.

The following quotes from our staff survey give a feel for the school;

“I believe the students behaviour is really good and it makes this school a great place to work.”

“The school management have a caring ethos and as a new member of staff I am very impressed with how valued I have been made to feel and the initiatives to make the working environment a happy place to be.”

“I love working at this school and do find it a good school to work for. I do feel valued and that there are opportunities for me to professionally develop. The behaviour here is good and SLT are supportive. It is a great school to work at.”

“Fantastic place to work - staff very supportive of each other and students.”

“The school is immaculately presented which provides a professional environment for our students to learn in and be proud of. SLT always make time to support every member of staff and the expectation of the workforce is clear.

If you would like to be part of a school that values the contribution of all staff in achieving great education and want to work in an environment where everyone is supported to develop further then we would like to speak with you.
