Welcome to Erith School
Mrs S Allen
Welcome to Erith School and thank-you for showing an interest in joining us in educating young people in Kent. At Erith, over a long period of time, we have worked hard to build a Secondary Modern School which the Governors, staff, students and parents can be proud of.
We all want to make a difference to the life chances of the students in our care. Not only have we done well in terms of examination results but also in a huge range of other activities, which develop the “whole child”. We care passionately about sport, both individual achievements and team competitions, and creativity through art, music, dance and drama. We care about enriching children’s lives through school day trips and longer journeys which improve students’ understanding of particular subjects as well as developing vital personal skills. All of these go beyond exam grades and cannot be measured by league tables. All our children gain new skills, knowledge and confidence, as they move from year to year in preparation for adult life.
Being a self-governing school we have complete control and a sense that our destiny is in our own hands. We work in a culture of success and achievement – set in a positive ethos of a firm, fair and caring staff; the success of the school is a result of the hard work by the staff at the school; the teachers, the support staff and the Governing Body.
We are proud of our 100 year heritage and are very excited about the ambitious plans we have for the future. This is an excellent time to join a successful and vibrant school, with fantastic children, supportive parents and a great community. I hope that you feel inspired to come and join us and wish you the very best of luck in your application.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Mrs S Allen
