About The Malling School
A mixed 11-19 co-educational High School of 800 pupils serving the historic market town of West Malling and surrounding villages. The school is set in pleasant rural surroundings and has its own lake and extensive grounds. It was completely re-built in September 2007 and therefore has outstanding facilities.
West Malling is close to the county town of Maidstone and has excellent rail links to London and Ashford International (for the Continent).
This is an exciting time to be joining the staff of The Malling School.
Academic achievement and the quality of teaching in the school have risen significantly and with them so has the reputation of the school. As a result, the school is currently growing by about 10% per year leading to a requirement for more staff, providing an increasing number of opportunities for everyone.
The Malling School was graded ‘Good’ by Ofsted in May 2015 and many outstanding features were cited in the report. It remains our ambition to be an Outstanding school and are therefore looking to recruit staff of the highest calibre.
As a smaller than average secondary school we provide a very supportive environment in which staff can further develop their skills and we ensure every new member of staff has access to a trained coach. With close teams of teachers and non-teachers working together we take a collaborative approach to school improvement and have a shared aim of providing the very best education for our pupils.
We offer an extensive and individualised training programme tailored around training needs identified by our staff. We encourage staff to take calculated risks in striving to be the very best and will never stifle innovation. Our philosophy is one where leaders are trusted to lead and teachers trusted to teach.
