Our unique school is situated in the beautiful countryside of Kent, nestling at the bottom of Stumble Hill in Shipbourne
village. It is a small school which has served the community since 1852. We have the capacity for approximately
60 pupils. Our children come from the immediate vicinity and further afield from villages, such as Hadlow and
Plaxtol, as well as Tonbridge.
The school is currently organised into three classes. Our unique setting and school structure allow for focused teaching to meet the ability and personality of each child; staff get to know pupils quickly and tailor their lessons to facilitate effective learning for all. We take great pride in our nurturing environment and everyone is treated as part of a family: all lives are enriched through sharing and collaborating as we prepare the children for an exciting future in which they can be both independent and aware of the feelings and needs of others.
The school has a very active PTA which supports the school in a range of ways to raise money to help us meet the changing demands of life in the 21st century, whilst still
retaining the intimate nature of our small school.
