The Rochester Grammar School is a member of The Thinking Schools Academy Trust, a successful growing family of schools that work together to improve the life chances of all its children and young people. It makes fulfilment, personal development and support of its staff a priority.
A career with TSAT has unlimited opportunity. We are passionate in supporting staff with their professional development and believe that the more we invest in our staff the more successful we will become as a Trust of schools.
TSAT is a non-profit making charitable multi academy trust that has successfully grown to include a diverse range of academies in Kent, Portsmouth and Plymouth for pupils aged between 3 and 19.
Our aim is to provide an education that meets the needs of all our children and we expect high standards of behaviour and a positive attitude to learning. Staff must share this same passion and be role models for our pupils with their diligence and commitment. In turn, our staff are supported with a framework that aims to bring the best out of them, within an environment that encourages reflection and improvement.
