Herne Bay High School is in a fortunate position to be in several partnerships with other organisations in our area.  These partnerships afford us a range of opportunities for staff and students alike.

Student Opportunities 

East Kent Schools Together is a unique partnership of a cluster of schools comprising Independent Schools, Comprehensive State Schools, and our local university. The remit of this group is to create opportunities that allow students from across all partners to participate in networking, confidence building, aspirational and Well-being activities. 

The partnership creates a student voice group every year that is chaired by elected student reps and who meet at the same time as our partner schools meet.

The Partnership has also secured several grants and other funding to support unique projects such as the deckchair Art project.

This partnership doesn’t just focus on student opportunity but provides the partner schools with regular cluster meetings between subject departments which allow us to share good practice and support one another. Other staff training events are also sought and allow us access to high quality guest speakers.

Opportunities for Initial Teacher Training

Many of our other partners support us with access to high quality Initial Teacher Training. Currently, we are partnered with the East Kent Learning Alliance and Kent and Medway Teach.

These partners allow us to advertise places where school based Initial Teacher Training can be accessed. Candidates can apply to our schools directly and we can work together in partnership to support contrast placements.

If you are interested in training to become a teacher, do get in touch with us and we can support you in finding a teacher training pathway that is right for you. We can also talk to you about the requirements you need to apply. You can email us through the contact page to speak to the Induction Tutor.

If the answer to any of these is 'yes' then the University of Kent's Access to Higher Education Diploma could be suitable for you.
