We want to create as large a framework in the sky as possible, within which the Astor family of students, teachers, support staff, parents, governors, friends and the wider community can fly.
This will encourage and stimulate an exciting, creative and caring environment in which individuals can maximise their personal and professional development.
The Federation comprises of Astor College (one of the country's leading arts Colleges), Barton Junior School, Shatterlocks Nursery and Infant School, White Cliffs Primary College for the Arts and Kent Educational Television Studios. Each of the schools/colleges has their own Principal who are;
Mr Lee Kane (Headteacher Astor), Mr Meades ( Headteacher, Barton and Shatterlocks) and Mrs Knight-Fotheringham (Headteacher White Cliffs).

It is only by talking to students and staff that one can get a true feel of Astor and the special relationship between students and staff.
