Information about the school

At Smeeth Community Primary School, we aim to provide an educational environment where children can be safe, happy and excited to learn. We offer a creative curriculum which will inspire our children to grow into independent, responsible and confident young people. Smeeth Primary School serves the beautiful rural village of Smeeth and the neighbouring area of Brabourne Lees. Smeeth is one of several villages to the east of Ashford not far from the North Downs. The school is set in lovely surroundings; there is a beautiful playing field, split into two levels by a bank just made for tobogganing, and a playground bordered by a large patio area and our new playground extension with trim trail, clamber stack and fire pit for outdoor learning. From the top of the playing field are views to the North Downs and from the upper school campus are views across Hatch Park. We have a beautiful library, Early Years area and a kitchen on site. The old schoolhouse is now part of the school’s working area and contains the offices, reception, and an upstairs storage area and teacher's room. There are five lovely classrooms, two in the extended Victorian building and three more in the building that includes the hall.
