Information about the trust

The Pilgrim Multi Academy Trust is a small group of Church of England Primary Schools who pride themselves on putting children first.

Learning is a Life’s Journey;Children Should Travel First Class;

Jesus said, "I have come in order that you might have life - life in all its fullness" (John 10:10)

We are a small group of four primary schools spanning two local authorities of Kent and Medway which enables us to work very collaboratively, providing the support of a large establishment whilst staying small. Each has its own unique identity; St Mark's is a beautiful rural, village school, St Margaret's at Troy Town sits in the heart of historic Rochester and the Pilgrim School provides a strong mix of them both. We have just opened a new 2FE primary called Rochester Riverside C of E Primary School and are excited to watch it grow and flourish amongst our family of schools.
