Barton Manor School, is a non-selective 11-18 school located in Canterbury, a 5-minute walk from Barton Court Grammar School. We are in our second year of opening with students in Y7 & Y8 only, and when full we will have a shared Sixth Form provision with Barton Court Grammar School providing a wide-range of vocational and academic courses.
We have a vision and a determination to provide our community with an excellent school and we are making great strides towards this. To work here is to embrace the challenges of an economically-diverse community and understand the influence education has in addressing social immobility. We’re looking for brilliant people to join us on our exciting journey with opportunities for staff to work and teach at both Barton Court and Barton Manor.
The School’s brand new amazing state-of-the art design build is a definite “wow factor” along with the facilities on offer to pupils and staff. All rooms are equipped with state-of-the-art electronic interactive whiteboards and all staff across the Trust have their own laptop. There are excellent facilities for sport, hospitality, engineering, dance, drama, music and art. We offer and value a broad curriculum aimed at promoting talent beyond the traditional subjects.
The School ethos encourages traditional values such as hard work, integrity and respect, along with tolerance, diversity and inclusion to develop personal character and aspiration. We value and nurture our young people to understand the importance of hard work, strong moral principles, open mindedness, and care for others whilst embracing the modern technological world today. The School is forward-thinking and entrepreneurial. This inspires our pupils today; everyone can work hard and be their very best. We want our pupils to have rich experiences that make them aspire for the very best careers and access to Higher Education and Training.
Our mission statement is aspire, believe and achieve. Pupils will aspire to be their very best and will be supported to believe in themselves and their ability to achieve and excel. Pupils will be encouraged and guided to develop as responsible citizens who will make a positive contribution to their School and the wider community. Pupils will appreciate British values such as democracy and tolerance and will develop into confident, independent and resilient young adults ready to meet the rapidly changing challenges of a 21st century world.
To achieve Barton Manor School’s vision we have established a set of behaviours and characteristics that define how everyone within our community pledges to act; these are the values that we strive to demonstrate and personify on a daily basis.
