Welcome

Our motto is “Learn Locally Think Globally”.

The Whitstable School puts learning first – which enables pupils to acquire and develop the core knowledge and skills they need to be confident, curious and caring members of a diverse and international community, working together to promote a better more purposeful, peaceful world.

The Whitstable School's balanced curriculum has been designed to meet the needs of today's pupils and prepare them to thrive amidst the challenges and opportunities of tomorrow's world as lifelong learners.

We believe that our knowledge rich curriculum allows pupils to unleash their creative potential and prepares them for the challenges of the twenty-first century.  Becoming knowledgeable about the world around them and studying ‘the best that has been thought and said’ stimulates pupils’ minds and makes them better, more creative thinkers.

About Us

Our school has wonderful, purpose built facilities. Our permanent Exhibition Hall showcases pupils’ work from all subject areas. The recital area allows pupils to enjoy watching each other perform. The school’s Debating Chamber and Student Leadership Council area give opportunities for pupils to argue, debate and challenge each other whilst testing out ideas. Our science space exhibition ‘Life at the Limits’ has interactive investigation stands that encourage pupils to reflect on the fundamental questions of existence.

The school’s curriculum has been designed to meet the needs of today’s pupils and help them thrive amidst the challenges and opportunities of tomorrow’s world.  At the end of Year 8 pupils are given an element of choice in their curriculum, choosing from performing or creative arts, sports and technology subjects.

At The Whitstable School, we know all of our pupils and take the time to support and guide them towards targets and goals that are realistic and personalised.  Whilst grades are important, school is about so much more than academic achievement. We seek to celebrate our pupils’ talents and skills at every opportunity and are proud of what we achieve together as a school community. Pupil voice is gathered regularly to enable our pupil body to help shape their school.

Mutual respect permeates the school and relationships between staff and pupils are positive. A form tutor meets your child every day and delivers engaging activities that prepare pupils with transferable skills and support wellbeing.

 “My child couldn’t be happier at the school and is thriving both emotionally and academically” (A parent writing on the Parent View Ofsted website)
