Why should you come and work with us at The North School? 

The North School is a mixed high school which currently has approximately 1200 students on roll from years 7 to 11 and including a thriving Sixth Form.

The school was rebuild approximately twelve years ago and as a result boasts lots of bright, modern, well equipped classrooms with many additional facilities including a large car park.  The North School also boats the oldest school farm in Kent which is well stocked with all types of animals from cows to a tarantula and has a very successful Young Farmers Club.  The farm is situated within the school’s Environment and Landbased Centre which also includes a fully functioning climbing wall.

At The North School we aim to maximise the potential and future life chances of all our students and have extremely high expectations both inside and outside the classroom.  We have a traditional ethos centred around our belief that students should be able to learn in a well ordered and engaging environment and that they should attempt all their work to the very best of their ability.

The town of Ashford itself offers superb transport links to London and Europe and easy access to the Kent coast.  Ashford International station, from which you can catch the high-speed train to London St Pancras taking just 37 minutes or the Eurostar to Paris, is a mere 15 minute walk from the school.  The Eurotunnel is 20 minutes from Ashford, or the port of Dover 30-40 minutes away, both are accessible from the M20 which you can also access easily from the school.

Ashford has grown in its popularity over the years as a destination for those to live and work.  Originally a historic market town, it has recently seen a surge in development with plenty of accessible housing both with the town itself or the surrounding villages.  It is also a popular destination for shoppers, with the McArthur Glenn Designer Outlet also just a stone’s throw from the school.  The town also offers many leisure facilities, including a Leisure Centre, two cinemas, plenty of gyms and many varied and interesting restaurants both in the town and surrounding areas.

There are several very good primary schools both within the town, local boroughs and surrounding villages, alongside excellent medical facilities and a large hospital, The William Harvey, with A&E facilities.

We are very proud of our collaboration with the Swale Academies Trust and together with the Trust we work relentlessly to continually improve the school experience for all our students.

Staff working at The North School are offered:

  • An excellent collaborative CPD programme, including research opportunities.
  • Aspiring teacher programme
  • Outstanding teacher programme
  • Outstanding leadership programme

In addition to the above there are opportunities for career development and leadership roles throughout the schools based within Swale Academies Trust.  More information about the Trust can be found on their website at www.swaleacademiestrust.org.uk.
