Information about the school
STS is an 11 to 18, mixed, secondary school that has an excellent reputation across Kent. In the words of Ofsted (July 2015) “Students’ behaviour in classrooms and around the school is a strength of the school” and “Good teaching is characterised by teachers’ encouraging relationships with their students and clear expectations”. In Ofsted’s most recent visit, they recognised STS to be good in all categories.
The success of our students from Year 7 through to the Sixth Form is due to the ‘can do, will do’ attitude that is the hallmark of staff and students alike. At STS we ‘Hold fast that which is good’: a broad and engaging curriculum; interesting, inspiring and innovative classroom practice; as well as a whole host of enriching extra-curricular activity. Throughout their time at STS the students are provided with quality advice, support and guidance to help them progress and grow academically, personally and vocationally. We recognise and celebrate diversity and understand that a ‘one size fits all’ approach is inappropriate for the unique individuals we serve.
Our School and all its personnel are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of the children. This post is subject to an Enhanced Disclosure Application to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
