Ms K Cardus

Executive Headteacher

Barton Court Academy Trust

Ms K Cardus is the Executive Headteacher of both Barton Court Grammar School and The Charles Dickens School, the Lead Professional of the Trust and Accounting Officer.

Ms Cardus joined Barton Court Grammar School in September 2010 as Headteacher. In March 2014 the School was judged “Outstanding” by Ofsted. “The Headteacher has a clear and ambitious vision for the School based upon high standards and secured through a drive for consistent and high-quality teaching" - OFSTED 2014.

In March 2015, Ms Cardus was awarded National Leader of Education (NLE) and Barton Court Grammar School a National Support School (NSS). NLEs along with staff in their school - designated a National Support School - use their success and professionalism to provide additional leadership capability in other schools. 

In January 2016, Barton Court Grammar School became an Academy Sponsor and started to work with The Charles Dickens School, in Broadstairs, a School placed in Special Measures by Ofsted in September 2014. On 1 March 2017, The Charles Dickens School joined Barton Court Academy Trust.

I am delighted and honoured to be the Executive Headteacher of both Barton Court Grammar School and The Charles Dickens School. As an Outstanding School it is important that Barton Court continues to grow and improve ensuring a continued outstanding educational provision for both current and future students. It is also important that we support other schools so more children across our education sector have access to high quality outstanding educational provision” - Ms Cardus.
