“As former students of the school, we really appreciate the chance to train at Highsted. It has been a fantastic experience in a supportive environment and we feel well-placed to begin our career in teaching."
At Highsted Grammar School we are proud to offer career opportunities for adults as well as students. In addition to teaching posts, there are a wide range of support posts which fall vacant from time to time. Likewise, we work in partnership with Fulston Manor and Borden Grammar schools to offer postgraduate teaching practice placements and the graduate teacher programme (GTP) in conjunction with Canterbury Christ Church University and Kent County Council.
If there are currently no vacancies that suit your ambitions at present but you would like to be considered for suitable appointments in the future, we are happy to receive your CV, together with a short letter of application, stating your experience and areas of interest.
