The school was first founded in 1894 and has taught the children of Bean ever since. The new premises was opened in 1966. As a village school, we benefit from a rural location with easy access to the A2 and Bluewater. This provides many opportunities for creative and interesting learning opportunities for our pupils.

We believe that confident and independent children make effective learners who can make full use of the engaging curriculum we offer them.

The school environment and ethos ensures that children, from the earliest age, develop a passion for learning and eagerness to do their best.
