We are a busy, vibrant, and happy school – academically successful but driven to achieve much more. We believe that education must maintain a balance between intellect and character. An outstanding education is not either/or. It is both. We believe that qualifications are what girls get; they do not define who they are and will play only a part in shaping the people they become. Our academic curriculum therefore is only a part of what we do. 

At the Folkestone School for Girls, girls do not complete an excessive number of qualifications. This allows them not only time to focus efforts on achieving the very best grades within these, but also time to participate in co-curricular activities and interests, both at school and at home. There is time to spend with friends and family and time, too, to just be a child. 
A justifiable balance between intellect and character.

We seek to appoint a meticulous, adaptable, passionate person to join our team.  A good scientific knowledge and practical scientific experience is desirable.

You will need great people skills, resilience and enthusiasm and a capacity for sustained hard work. Perhaps most importantly, you will be positive, optimistic and have a can-do attitude to anything that will benefit FSG Girls.

You’ll also be able to get involved with our unique personal development and character education programme, The FSGBacc, which encompasses all sorts of activities – from our very own escape room or our own radio station through to our extensive Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme or our Combined Cadet Force Contingent! Sport, Music, Debate, Drama, Dance, Adventure – something for everyone!

You can find out all about our school and about our unique school vision and ethos via our school website.
