Welcome

Goodwin Academy is a vibrant and engaging key stage 3-5 mixed academy based in the heart of Deal.

Sponsored by the Thinking Schools Academy Trust (TSAT), Goodwin Academy is part of a family of schools in Kent, Medway and Portsmouth. There are currently 18 academies in the trust including secondary and primary schools. TSAT is a successful and rapidly growing trust, ranked as the highest performing academy trust in the country for 2018 at KS4. It has high expectations for all academies, setting ambitious targets for pupils learning and progress.

At Goodwin, we are committed to transforming the life chances of our students, ensuring that all are supported and encouraged to achieve their personal best. We deliver this through the BEST Agenda -‘Be Your Best’ with BEST being an acronym for B = Brilliance, E = Enrichment, S = Society and T = Thinking. Students will experience challenge in all its forms on a daily basis and will feel what it is like to be challenged. In turn, they will themselves challenge intelligently, and that spirit will be quickly realised from the moment the pupils first enter the school.

We pride ourselves on our caring and compassionate ethos, which enables our students to grow in a supportive atmosphere conducive to their development. Where students need additional support, we will look to meet their needs through our highly effective pastoral system.

The school has a thriving extra-curricular programme with many opportunities for students to grow their talents. In the sporting arena, the school has a wide range of very successful teams and have regular student productions, dance shows and exhibitions.

Ultimately, we aspire for our students to develop their academic and life skills, so that they become confident, well-rounded and contented individuals and are equipped and ready to be successful for the world of work and the challenges of the 21st Century.

I look forward to welcoming you to our amazing School.

Simon Smith
Principal
