We are extremely proud to provide a safe and caring environment for our children where they can thrive, whilst promoting Christian and British values. Naturally the children are considered to be our greatest asset, which ensures they are at the heart of our strategic and operational decision making. The school fosters an ethos where our pupils are keen to learn, well-behaved and a joy to teach. We encourage their development into caring and socially minded individuals who actively support the local community and beyond with initiatives. Supporting the local food bank and a variety of local charities are just two examples.

We have strong links with St Mary’s Church Westerham and participate in the many activities aligned with the religious calendar, which draws us closer to the community as a whole. The Vicar and his wife lead collective worship, providing guidance to ensure that Christian worship and distinctiveness are an integral part of the school.

The school has a breakfast club and after school club which can be used by staff.
