Hugh Christie School

Hugh Christie opened in 1957 as a co-educational school for children of all needs and abilities. Based in Tonbridge with excellent transport links, the school is housed in well maintained buildings on an attractive campus, with excellent facilities.

It is our aim that every child at Hugh Christie is happy, successful and well prepared for adult life. This website provides you with all the important information about how we try to achieve this.

Long Mead Community Primary School

Long Mead Primary School serves an estate in the north end of Tonbridge. The local ward it serves has relatively high levels of deprivation for the area. As a result, the school has higher than average number of disadvantaged children on its roll.

The school has a population of around 170 children, including a nursery. The school roll has fluctuated over time and this had made stability a challenge. One priority area is to increase numbers attending the school in the nursery and reception by broadening the appeal of the school to the local community.
