We are an outstanding grammar school with boys in Years 7-11 and a mixed Sixth Form. Oakwood Park Grammar is situated on the Oakwood Park campus in Maidstone, with easy access to transport routes. We are a forward thinking school and teachers are encouraged to take up Action Research projects to improve their practice. Our Continued Professional Development programme (CPD) is thorough and encourages inter-departmental collaboration whilst also valuing teacher autonomy. All trainee teachers access this as well as being invited to join our TALL sessions (Teachers as Lifelong Learners).
We provide training opportunities at Key Stage 3, 4 and 5. As well as the established curriculum subjects in Key Stage 3, we teach Thinking Skills and Learning to Learn. Key Stage 4 students have the opportunity to study a subject that particularly interests them for their Higher Project Qualification as part of our Extended Learning package. We also offer the Extended Project Qualification alongside a wide variety of subjects at A Level and Pre-U in Key Stage 5.
We have a good team of dedicated tutors and mentors who provide a supportive network for trainee teachers and NQTs, working with a variety of ITT providers. Trainee teachers and NQTs also have their own bespoke CPD sessions.
Oakwood Park invites applications from trainee teachers who are inquisitive individuals who have a passion for learning.
