    The standard of photographs this year is very high indeed, too good to only have two runner ups

Welcome to Homewood School

Welcome to the Homewood School & Sixth Form Centre website. 

We hope it gives you a clear picture of life at Homewood and provides the information you need, but please do not hesitate to Contact Us if you would like to come and visit us, or if you need further information about any aspect of the school.

I consider it a privilege to be the Principal of Homewood School and to work with such a wonderful team of staff and students. There is always so much going on here - you can find out more by following the Latest News section and by checking the Principal's Blog, which I keep regularly updated.

We are an innovative and creative school with a wide network of Partnerships including with the Innovation Unit, Whole Education, Learners Cloud and a range of technology companies and local businesses. We are part of the Tenterden Rural Alliance of schools and we love to work alongside others to provide the best possible learning opportunities for everyone.

To find out important details about the school, including the information we are required to publish on our website, have a look at the School Information section and you can find out more about our values and ethos here: Life at Homewood.

Following our successful Ofsted inspection in September 2012 when the inspection team graded Homewood “Good” in every category, the school has continued to go from strength to strength and we achieved our best ever examination results in 2013 at GCSE and A-level. 

The areas which the inspectors particularly praised continue to be significant strengths of the school:

  • The progress pupils make with their learning during their time at the school and the results they achieve in public examinations
  • The quality of the 6th form, including development of leadership skills and preparation for future work and study
  • The courteous behaviour of students around the school and their attentiveness in lessons
  • The quality of teaching, including the way students are helped to become independent learners, and to work well together to support each other in their learning
  • The broad and varied curriculum which provides for students exceptionally well
  • The calm environment for learning in which pupils feel safe

We have a beautiful site and some exciting plans for a new building. We like to make our excellent facilities available to the community and we can also provide a range of different services to local people, schools and businesses. For more information about what we can offer, see our Homewood Portfolio.
