CEO’s Welcome

Welcome to the Tenterden Schools Trust web-site. I have the privilege of being the Chief Executive Officer of the Trust. Having been a Headteacher for the last fifteen years, most recently as the Principal of Homewood School & Sixth Form Centre for nine years, it is a great joy for me to be leading this group of schools in and around the town of Tenterden.

It has always made sense to me that we should be thinking about a young person’s education as a continual process from infancy to adulthood rather than a set of separate steps through nursery, infant, junior and secondary schools. In the Tenterden Schools Trust we have the great opportunity to plan together a genuine 0-19 learning journey for the young people in our Trust. Of course, everything we learn from that goes on to benefit all the students who join Homewood School at age 11, whether or not they have been in one of our Trust schools prior to joining us.
