Until April 2011, Standford Hill was part of a prison cluster, headed by a CEO. The establishment now forms part of a Sheppey group, which has restructured significantly from the former cluster arrangement, each establishment now having a #1 governor, but with some common services shared.
There are three wings:
- A wing holds 192 prisoners in single cells and is the induction wing;
- B wing holds 192 prisoners in single cells and mainly houses the longer-term prisoners;
- C wing holds 80 prisoners in single cells and is a resettlement wing for those offenders working out.
