School profile

Northfleet School for Girls

Northfleet School for Girls is a non-selective girls school (with a mixed Sixth Form) in north Kent. We have been rapidly expanding in recent years and are heavily oversubscribed in all year groups.

We believe we have a very exciting vision centred around the phrase "Dream Big and Achieve". In reality this means supporting students to have high aspirations for their lives and then supporting them to achieve this through excellent results (we are significantly outperforming similar schools) and of equal importance, developing the whole person through our Dream Big Programme. Students leave us to many successful destinations including Oxbridge.

Student behaviour is excellent and we have an amazing staff team, with very low staff turnover. We look forward to welcoming you to our school and an experience of what a great career teaching can be!

About our school experience

Details

Teaching is an amazing career and we seek to offer an opportunity to find out why through our school. As part of your experience you will be able to:

- Tour the site to examine the facilities and feel the culture of a positive caring school
- Observe lessons in your chosen subject
- Talk with teachers for their honest experience of teaching
- Meet students to find out the real reason why being a teacher is so rewarding
- Meet with a senior leader to discuss routes into teaching and support once you fully join as a qualified professional

We hope that all of the above will excite you about our profession and bring real clarity on how you can achieve a career in teaching.
