Welcome to One School Global – Maidstone Campus
I am delighted to welcome you to our school website. We are very proud of our students and all that they are, and are very fortunate to have a beautiful, fully-equipped school nestled in the Kent countryside.
Maidstone is an Outstanding campus (Independent School Inspectorate December 2016) but that is just a marker at one point in time. We constantly strive to improve the quality of education that we provide for our students, and to ensure that our school is professionally and educationally as stimulating as it can be for all involved with it.
Maidstone is part of OneSchool Global which means we have professional and personal links with our other campuses across the UK and the wider world. This enables us to access cutting-edge staff development and explore the most effective educational practices, allowing us to lead the way educationally through approaches such as Self Directed Learning, 50:50 -which encourages students to work beyond their expected boundaries – and the use of technology: Canvas, our learning platform, and Zoom, a means of continuing education with staff based at other campuses.
Maidstone is an exciting, forward thinking, dynamic educational base which still also manages to maintain a sense of family. Visitors to the campus frequently comment on the warmth and welcome that they receive when arriving. Staff are committed, supportive and collaborative, sharing expertise and working together to ensure that all their skills are used to support and move our students forward.
Through our motivational programme, we have a set of OneSchool skills which develop our students into the best of people, both in school and in the work place beyond. They are:
- Academic Achievement – Assessment, Perseverance, Accomplishments, Versatility, Homework
- Leadership – Role model, Responsibility, Respect, Consistency, Loyalty
- Involvement – Adaptability, Enthusiasm, Encouragement, Team Spirit, Inclusiveness
- Fulfilling Potential – Persistence, Understanding, Focus, Resilience, Maturity
- Management Skills – Initiative, Organisation, Cooperation, Reflection, Communication, SDL.
We are trying to produce students who are not just career ready, but who are also life ready. Students join us from across the South East of England at Y3 and remain with us until Y13. When they move on to the next phase of their lives, they go not just with a set of academic qualifications, but with a defining set of life-ready characteristics. Maidstone produces a Student Employability Profile which also recognises achievement across a range of personal attributes, informing future employers of the mettle of the young person they will be recruiting.
The Career Advantage Programme, studied alongside academic subjects in the Sixth Form and developed in close relationship with the Business community, ensures that students are prepared and ready for whatever their futures may provide for them.
Maidstone is a life-changing educational establishment, born of vision, worked into being by the dedication of all associated with it.
We hope you enjoy exploring our website, and are happy to address any further enquiries should you wish to know more.
