Academic success is a priority. Please see here for our latest results.

We prepare the children for entry into top grammar schools through the Kent Test/11+ and to top public senior schools via the ISEB pre-test, Common Entrance, and Scholarship routes, offering small classes, superb facilities, supported by our team of talented and dedicated staff. Our results are excellent, and our pupils gain entry to a variety of prestigious schools, with a number winning scholarships each year.

Our teachers aim to encourage active learning through challenging pupils and engaging them in all lessons. Pupil participation, involvement and regular self-reflection is encouraged in all lessons. Every child is informed of their progress and effort throughout the term.

Additional educational or emotional support needs are identified and acted upon by our proactive academic support teams.
