Information about the school

Aylesham Primary School is a 'Good' school in all areas following an OfSTED Inspection in December 2017.

We have a warm, friendly and supportive team who work alongside enthusiastic children with a desire to learn.

We are a two-form entry primary school in the heart of the Kent countryside, six miles south of Canterbury and serving Aylesham and the surrounding villages.

For many years pupil roll numbers dictated a class structure of one class per year group. From September 2015 we started opening additional classes and we are continuing to expand. Pupil roll numbers continue to steadily increase mainly due to the expansion of Aylesham village which commenced in summer 2014.

The school was a part of the Governments Priority Schools Building Programme (PSBP) and moved into a brand new building with state of the art facilities in September 2017.
