Mr J Hopkins


Barton Court Grammar School

Mr Hopkins commenced his role as Headteacher at Barton Court Grammar School in January 2020.

Prior to joining Barton Court he had worked for over 14 years at both the girls and boys grammar schools in Sittingbourne as either a Deputy Head or the Headteacher. During this time he completed The National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH). These years provided him with invaluable experience but more importantly instilled a determination to work hard for young people to realise the advantages that a grammar school education can bring.

That resolve and ambition for young people is something he conveys on a daily basis to the staff and students at Barton Court. Without doubt a driving force in his motivation to do his job well is making sure a grammar school education opens up as many opportunities for young people as possible.
