Information about the school

Ramsgate Arts Primary School is a brand new two-form entry primary school that has been moved to its new purpose built building.

Ramsgate Arts Primary is part of the Viking Academy Trust; a primary only, three school Multi-Academy Trust, with Chilton Primary and Upton Junior School the other members of our Viking family of schools.

The vision of our Arts school is to provide a high-quality, rounded and creative education, through which every child can experience the joy of learning and also be supported to reach his or her potential. This is made possible through a relentless focus on high quality teaching and learning, ensuring all children make good or better progress in reading, writing and maths. This academic rigor goes hand in hand with our belief that developing a love of the arts - music, art dance and drama, will enrich our children and offer them an all-encompassing primary school experience.

We endeavour to nurture and build on creativity. Through our Arts Curriculum, our children are taught the skills of creative subjects. Our specialist teaching team will guide children in learning the value of discipline, commitment and work ethic as well as creative thinking skills. The result will be children who not only have a secure educational foundation, but also have the ability to think outside the box and channel their creativity enabling them to succeed in a rapidly changing world.

We aim to create a calm yet highly stimulating environment, within which every child can feel secure and grow in self-confidence, gaining the necessary personal, social and academic life-skills to succeed in society today as well as preparing them for a largely unknown tomorrow.

Classrooms are full of children motivated by positive, well-paced and purposeful lessons which encourage them to develop autonomy and become independent learners. Our staff are passionate about the children’s success and ensure that Ramsgate Arts Primary provides a first class education for every child. One Childhood: One Chance!
