Barton Junior School
Barton Junior school is a two-form entry Junior school (ages 7-11) in the heart of Dover.
We provide our children with an excellent continuation of their education from infant school. Our aim is for every child to reach their full potential through creating a stimulating and caring environment that provides challenges and enjoyment, where children’s natural curiosity and wonder about the world around them is encouraged, where children will thrive.
We believe in the partnership between home and school and believe ‘Together we make a difference.’ All members of the team play a vital part in achieving this and are recognised as valuable members of the school community.
Samphire Star Education Trust (the Trust) is a family of schools which serve the south of Kent community and beyond. It comprises Astor Secondary School, Barton Junior School, Shatterlocks Infant and Nursery School, White Cliffs Primary and Nursery School. We have a well-established reputation for offering our pupils a safe and caring environment in which they can be happy and thrive as they learn. Ideas and opportunities are explored with enthusiasm through a broad and balanced curriculum throughout the Trust. All young people in our community, from the youngest to the oldest, are encouraged and supported to be the very best versions of themselves possible.
Trustees prioritise the safety and wellbeing of our staff and students. At all levels, individuals have the opportunity to extend their interests and develop their talents through collaboration and celebration within strong and imaginative teams.
