Information about the school

Founded in 1716, Smarden's original school building is at the heart of the beautiful village. The building at the front dates back to 1858. In 2014/2015, the school underwent extensive refurbishment and new building works. This was a wonderful opportunity for the school and was part of the Priority School Building Programme.

Four new, large classrooms were built to the rear of the old building and we are now able to deliver a 21st century learning environment within a new single-storey building, a new link corridor connecting the two buildings together and a new outdoor space with provision for games, social use and outdoor classrooms. We also have a wooded area on site where we run Forest School, allowing the children to embrace the outdoors as an inspirational learning environment.

We offer the best learning environment for children ages 2-11. We endeavour to instil the best teaching methods for our articulate and intelligent pupils. We follow the Discover-Explore-Create curriculum, allowing them to be inquisitive and critical thinkers, always giving their best.

In September 2019, Smarden Preschool became part of Smarden Primary School and the wider TKAT family. Smarden Preschool has provided childcare for the village and local area for over 25 years in various formats. Merging with Smarden Primary School has helped to secure the long term future of the setting.

We aim for our children to develop lifelong skills, the ability to take responsibility for their own learning so that they can face future challenges with confidence. We pride ourselves on providing a happy, caring, supportive and positive learning atmosphere where each child can achieve success. We actively encourage partnership between parents and our local community.
