A warm welcome to Chilmington Green School: A message from the Principal Designate

I am proud to have been appointed Principal Designate for Chilmington Green School.  As a brand new school, we have the opportunity to create something very special in this part of Kent and I look forward to providing young people here with an engaging and enriching education which fully prepares them for university and successful, rewarding careers. 

I am joining Chilmington Green School from United Learning’s Wye School where I have been Vice Principal since 2018.  Wye School, which opened as a new school in 2013, quickly established itself as a high-performing, popular and nurturing school and my vision for Chilmington Green School is no different.  We will emulate the vision and success of Wye School giving our students every opportunity to flourish and achieve their ambitions.  In doing so, we will work closely with Wye School as well as United Learning’s Ashford School.  Working together as a cluster of schools in Kent, we can enhance the opportunities we are able to offer both students and staff across all three schools. 

Admissions for our first cohort of Year 7 students open this Autumn and parents will be able to apply for a place through this website.  As our founding students, our first Year 7s will play a leading role in shaping the school and ensuring it properly meets the needs, interests and aspirations of the young people it serves.  I look forward to working with students, parents and staff as we create a school the whole community can be proud of. 

Over the next few months, I will be meeting prospective students and their parents to tell them more about the plans that are underway for the school.  Please do take the time to come and speak to me and ask any questions you may have.  Alternatively, please feel free to email me via the Chilmington Green Mailbox

I look forward to meeting you. 

Jon Rutland 
Principal Designate
