Head Teacher Welcome

I consider myself privileged to have been reorganising, developing and leading a team of committed professionals during the past academic year at The North West Kent Alternative Provision Service.


The service has undergone a complete restructure and reorganisation since the last inspection in October 2017.  We believe that NWKAPS is developing rapidly and is able to demonstrate measurable improvement. I am confident that the exciting move for our longer stay Key Stage 4 young people to new premises in September 2018 will rapidly enhance the opportunities and further improve outcomes.


I believe that our vision: INSPIRE. ASPIRE. EMPOWER. fully captures the aspiration we have as a staff team. We aim to provide an invaluable service for our children and young people at a time for them when additional interventions are needed to help them to re-engage in their education.


Our new Leadership team strive for successes each and every day. We remain committed to further developing the breadth of engagement opportunities and interventions we are able to offer. We aim to ensure that every destination for every child and young person has the best possible chance of being successful.


Our mission, without compromise, is to provide a nurturing, inspirational learning environment where aspirational, individual pathways are created. We are committed to developing a service which aims to ensure that extensive specialist interventions empower pupils to successfully reintegrate in to mainstream education or continued education, training or employment.
