Information about the school

Amherst School is a three form entry junior school in Sevenoaks. The majority of our children transfer from Riverhead Infants School. Our Ofsted inspection in January 2019 reported that our leaders and governors provide clear direction, which creates a strong sense of community and purpose which motivates staff and pupils to achieve very well.

The report also stated that:

Staff are fully committed to delivering the school’s values of trust, kindness, determination, politeness, fairness and cooperation; they all said they are proud to work at the school. Parents responded very positively and in large numbers to Ofsted’s online questionnaire. Two parents, speaking for many, said: ‘The children are very well motivated and inspired to learn as well as to participate in the many extra-curricular activities’ and then, ‘The teaching staff go above and beyond for their pupils.’ Leaders are fulfilling the school’s aim to ‘Inspire every pupil’.

Pupils are very well behaved and have positive attitudes to learning. They recognise the high-quality support that they receive from adults in the school. One pupil told me that, ‘adults do everything they can to help us’. Pupils are articulate, polite and well mannered. They listen well and respect other people’s ideas. Their attitudes to learning are extremely positive. Pupils enjoy their learning and talk about their determination to do as well as they can. Pupils say that they enjoy the very wide range of extra-curricular activities on offer, currently over 50 clubs. These are varied and high quality'.
