Chilmington Green Primary School

Headteacher appointment

The Stour Academy Trust is delighted to announce the appointment of a Headteacher to lead Chilmington Green Primary School, a new school opening in Ashford in September 2018.

After a rigorous selection process, in which a number of strong candidates were tested and interviewed over two days, Mrs Lisa Flack was the unanimous choice, and will welcome pupils into the school on the first day of the new school year, Tuesday 4th September 2018.

Mrs Flack, with over 20 years of experience in education, brings a commitment to provide the very best education for all children and is an advocate of the Trusts vision of putting children at the heart of all decisions. CEO Simon O’Keefe who chaired the interview panel said he was delighted to be able to appoint such a high calibre candidate for the role.

Initially opening in temporary accommodation in Jemmett Road (previously the home of Finberry Primary School from September 2015-17), the school will move into its new state of the art site on the Chilmington Green Development once building works have been completed, this is currently expected to be September 2019.

The school has also recently received the positive news that the supplementary funding agreement has been approved by the Secretary of State for Education, allowing the school to cement its place in Ashford for years to come. Parents who have not been successful with their first choices for September 2018 now have the unique opportunity to apply for Chilmington Green Primary, who can provide a quality education with an engaging curriculum for children in the Ashford area.

The school opens with a Reception class with space for 30 children and mixed Y1/2 and 3/4 classes of 30 children, totalling 90 places.
