(Formerly The Tenterden Schools Christian Worker Trust)
The Trust’s core aim is to provide Christian support within Homewood School and Sixth Form Centre, Tenterden and the Marsh Academy, New Romney and their feeder primary schools.
The project grew out of the need for rural churches seeking ways support their young people as they move from small local primary schools to one of the large secondary schools. At this important stage in their life, many young people lose contact with their local church whose reach is normally limited to their primary school.
Through this imaginative project, churches have worked together to fund Christian schools worker to offer ministry to these young people and the staff of these schools; building on the foundations laid at primary school, and to enable the development of their faith in an age-appropriate manner.
Many of the communities that feed into Homewood School school are small and remote, and one of the best places to provide Christian support for them is through their school.

Currently we are in the process of recruiting a new Schools worker for Homewood school. You can download an application pack here. We are fundraising for the post in the Marsh Accademy, and hope to begin the recruitment process shortly. You can read about our former schools worker for Homewood Nathan Wilson, who was in post till July 2016.
See the section “Legal stuff” for details of our annual report and accounts.
The project is the result of a strong ecumenical partnership between Anglican and Free churches within the catchment area of Homewood School in Tenterden, Kent, and support of the Diocese of Canterubry. Please support us with prayer and donations, and join us at our regular meetings.
Both Homewood and the Marsh Academy are inclusive secondary schools in which students of all faiths or none are welcomed and nurtured.
