The innovative new Technical School in Broadstairs received a ‘Good’ grading following its recent inspection by Government education watchdog Ofsted.
Expect first-class teaching and learning; The Technical School is part of an established College that has been recognised for its high standards and which has a proven track record of success.
It is a privilege to have been appointed as Head at The Technical School at East Kent College. Many parents, I am sure, will welcome this new initiative which is an opportunity for their children to enjoy a more practical/vocational way of learning which will inspire a willingness to learn and determination to succeed. Instead of staying at their current school for years 10 and 11, students now have the opportunity to learn the practical skills needed for employment, while continuing to study for GCSEs in Maths, English and Science. There will also be a strong focus on enterprise and developing the skills that employers value that will give our students the ‘edge’ in what continues to be a highly competitive job market.
Working in partnership with parents
The Technical School’s guiding principle is that everyone matters. We want every young person to reach their full potential and succeed. We are determined to stretch and challenge young people through outstanding teaching and the opportunity to learn in some of the best vocational facilities in Kent. We also know that young people benefit most when there is a partnership between school, parent, carer or guardian and student and we welcome their involvement in all aspects of school life.
A secure, safe learning environment
Research shows that students who feel safe and secure are more likely to do well in their studies. The Technical School building is designed to provide a dedicated safe and caring environment for our Year 10 learners. In addition East Kent College has been commended by Ofsted for our Safeguarding, as well as for the pastoral and learning support we give our students.
The Technical School at East Kent College is a vibrant community in which students and staff learn and achieve great things together.Simon Heaton Head of School
