Our school has a crucial part to play in the local community and we hope to produce young men who have a clear sense of their responsibilities to other people which includes being active members of their community and contributing to the wellbeing of others, especially the most vulnerable.
As a school we accept pupils from a wide area of West Kent and beyond so, as a learning community we are widely spread. Our commitment to being an outward facing school means that we seek to work with a range of local community partners. We have plans which will allow us to use school facilities to promote life-long learning opportunities as well as communal activities which will benefit individuals. Current plans include:
- The Development of after an after school club which will offer a range of stimulating opportunities to local primary school children and their parents between 4pm and 6pm and a similar all-day club that will operate in the school holidays which will allow the school to offer local families a service which will help balance work and life.
- Working with local agencies to offer learning opportunities to elderly local residents. We will use our greatest resource (the young people we educate) to create links with older citizens to help them develop their computer skills.
- We will offer our facilities to local clubs and other groups so that they can develop their interests in a secure and well-resourced environment helping to make this school a hub of local activity and commitment.
