Both are single sex secondary schools who share a large, successful joint sixth form. There is a strong community spirit across both schools with and an ethos of inclusion, supporting learners of all abilities.

Both are well established, successful secondary academies in Medway that will enable you to work alongside strong and motivated teams, who are committed to ensuring that our pupils make outstanding progress.

We are looking for a skilled MFL specialist eager to help students explore the subject further through creative and inspiring teaching. The ideal candidate would be able to teach Spanish to Key Stage 4 and French to Key Stage 3 or above.

Our students have demonstrated consistently strong improvements over a sustained period and we are always keen to innovate to deliver the very best education for our pupils.
Our recent OFSTED in May 2018 resulted in a continued GOOD rating and commented that, “Leaders set high expectations for behaviour and academic progress. As a result, the school is a calm and purposeful learning environment. The Headteacher successfully supports the well-being of staff.”

The Skills for Life Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
