 Information about the school

We are proud of our strong Christian ethos and values and have very close links to our historic church, Holy Trinity, in Dartford High Street.

Our Ofsted judgement reported us as "good" in all areas, while our SIAMS inspection received 'outstanding' in all areas. I attribute this to the commitment of our dedicated staff and the strong family ethos evident within our school.
