Information about the school

Kemsing Primary is a delightful village school in a very beautiful location set at the foot of the North Downs, yet only 10 minutes from the thriving commuter town of Sevenoaks. The school was established in 1885 although our current buildings are considerably newer!

We are a one form entry school with a current roll of 184 pupils.

We are a central member of our local community and have strong links with our local parish church where we hold Easter, Harvest and Christmas services for the children and their families. Local businesses and community groups support us through the activities of our hard-working PTA, who run a large programme of events each year from the popular village summer fete, through to quizzes and comedy nights. Profits support school projects like the redevelopment of our wonderful swimming pool facilities.

Our dedicated governing body further supports the school with its diverse skill set and has been actively involved over the past year in redesigning our eco wildlife pond and garden and creating a fabulous school library to support our children’s learning. At Kemsing Primary School we encourage parents to be fully involved in their children's education. Our philosophy is one of partnership, where parents and the school work closely together for the benefit of the child.

We treat every child as an individual. We have high expectations that all of our children will excel and reach their full potential. The school prides itself on its welcoming and happy atmosphere and our emphasis is on excellence and enjoyment for all. Our highly committed and talented staff members create a supportive yet challenging environment for our young learners.
