Information about the school

Stella Maris is a happy, family school that was judged to be ‘Good’ in every category by Ofsted in October 2017 and was described as "a joyful learning community" in its RE Inspection in May 2015. We are a one-form entry Catholic primary school, with children drawn from all over Folkestone and Cheriton. The intake is truly ‘comprehensive’, representing the full range of social background and prior attainment.

On 1st January 2015 we became a converter Academy as part of the Kent Catholic Schools’ Partnership.

We offer an exciting, stimulating curriculum and staff enjoy some outstanding CPD opportunities. We are lucky enough to be set in beautiful surroundings, with our own playing fields, adventure playground and ‘picnic area’, in spite of being close to Folkestone town centre. We have a warm, welcoming ethos, a problem-solving approach, and high expectations.
