Information about the school

High Firs Primary School is a popular one-form entry Community Primary School for boys and girls aged between 4+ and 11 years (number on role:210). The school is set in an attractive estate off Goldsel Road in Swanley. The school is easily reached from the main road by a series of paths between the houses and linking roads for ease of access.

The school is set in pleasant surroundings with shrubs and trees. The children have a playground, with opportunities for both games and quieter activities, and an adjoining playing field which they use for both playtime and PE in drier weather. Our grounds have recently been enhanced by the development of a woodland area into an exciting outdoor learning area.

We have five classrooms in our main building, all of which open onto our central activity area & Library. The main building also houses our ICT Suite, Group Learning Room, School Hall and administration facilities. The School Hall is used for activities such as PE, dance, indoor games, drama and assemblies, as well as being our dining area; this area was extended during the Summer Term 2010 to provide us with greater space for PE, whole school and community activities. We also added a new Staff Room, washroom and PE storage area, as well as new administration & reception areas.

Our annexe building has two newer classrooms, including the Reception classroom which has an adjoining fully enclosed outdoor learning area.

High Firs is supported by both our Governing Body and the Friends of High Firs Primary School Association. Pupils are well supported by parents, and we are very proud of the standards of behaviour set at the school.
