We have an exciting opportunity for a talented and energetic Operations Manager to work across two schools in our Medway collegiate. Thank you for your interest in becoming part of our team.
Kingfisher is a one form entry primary school close to the bustling Princes Park area of Chatham, Saxon Way is a two form entry primary school close to Gillingham Station, both schools have a nursery. We pride ourselves on reflecting our proud history and heritage in our values and our ethos.
We nurture and teach individuals at Kingfisher and Saxon Way, who develop as confident and resilient learners with a love of reading, a creative flair for writing and a passion for maths. We encourage the scientists, musicians, historians, geographers and sportspeople of the future to make their mark on the world. The Trust’s three pillars of Proud Traditions, Wide Horizons and High Achievement filter through our bespoke curriculum and achievements.
We have a strong vision based on our belief in developing Proud Traditions, Wide Horizons and High Achievement and supported by our family of Griffin Schools. Our collegiate working with our closest GST partner schools in Medway, enables us to offer excellent educational experiences for our pupils. As a GST school, we do not teach young people to know their place in society but rather discover their talents and passions and to take their place in society, making a difference wherever their futures take them.
As a valued member of our Medway family, you will:
• work with people who are committed to developing your talents, both professionally and personally
• be given the best opportunities within a collegiate of schools
• have opportunities to take part in action research projects to inspire our provision
We will do our best to show you the heart of Kingfisher and Saxon Way so that you get a sense of how well matched you may be to our professional community. Please explore our websites and that of the Griffin Schools Trust, you will see evidence of the shared life of the schools in the Trust in events such as the Griffin Arts Festival, the Science Symposium, the Sports Festival and Founders Day.
The Trust really is a family of schools which work closely together within and across phases and geographical hubs. So in joining the Griffin Schools Trust you will have strong relationships with local authority schools and projects, but you also have a strong working relationship with your peers in our family of schools. We work closely as a Medway Collegiate and all three schools are on a rapid journey to Griffin Great. Please read the attached Griffin Great descriptors as these inform our developmental planning and describe the culture that we are creating together.
