About the training provider

Saint George's Church of England School is part of the Aletheia Anglican Academies Trust and an OfSTED graded "Good with Outstanding Leadership" 11-18 Secondary School in Gravesend, Kent. An over-subscribed school, we have a long history of training teachers and a large number of our current teaching body were trained at the school. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum, believing the Arts, sport and vocational subjects are as equally important as the traditional subjects. Saint George's is a christian school as opposed to a school for Christians where we pride ourselves on our diverse and welcoming community and school ethos of everyone being "All different, all equal". We work in partnership with a number of schools (there are 6 Primary Schools in the trust and we will be opening a Primary on our site in the next year) and, as a Lead School for KMT, send applications to 3 other Secondary schools in the area as well as the aforementioned Primary Schools. Our buildings are traditional but the teaching that happens within them is in line with the 21st century. We are a hub school for KAGAN strategies (a technique for collaborative learning) and were a pilot school for the Shanghai inspired maths mastery programme.
