School Ethos

We are a large college divided into three communities. Year 7 through to year 11 are divided into two communities called Chaucer and Darwin. The third community, Austen, is our thriving Sixth Form. Each community is led by a team of staff who will ensure that your child is supported both academically and pastorally. If you wish to contact a member of staff from the community please go to our contact page.

The Sittingbourne Community College has a specialism in performing arts, but we also focus heavily on ensuring students achieve the best possible outcomes in English, mathematics and science.

Pupils are encouraged to be ready to learn and our College Message, Classroom Code and Site Code are designed to foster respect and hard work.

We also have specialist units at the College, one for deaf pupils and one for pupils with specific learning difficulties. A place in either unit is governed by the local authority and pupils must have a statement of special educational need.


College Message

  1. I care about my college and realise that I have a part to play in making it a successful and happy place to be.
  2. I will have high expectations of myself and try my best to improve, both in and out of the classroom, so that I can reach my potential.
  3. I understand that I need to treat everybody in the college with care and consideration, and realise that nothing I do or say should make other people unhappy.
  4. I will celebrate mine and other people's achievements, but if I make a mistake, I will be honest, accept advice, and do anything in my power to put things right.
  5. I must remember that my actions outside of the college, good or bad, will reflect on the whole of the college community.

Remember: My college concentrates on success and achievement.
