Bishop Chavasse Church of England Primary School opened in September 2017 as part of the Tenax Schools Trust. The school is a 4-11 Church of England two form entry primary free school which has recently opened in brand new, purpose built school, located in and mainly serving South Tonbridge (postcode area TN11).
The core of our vision is to create an outstanding Church of England primary school at the heart of local community where all pupils, regardless of background are offered an inspiring curriculum which enables them to master the knowledge and skills they need to achieve their full educational and personal potential.
Our Christian values prevail throughout our school. Bishop Chavasse Church of England Primary School continues to strive to be at the forefront of developing new approaches to learning, embedding the ‘mastery’ approach to primary phase teaching, whilst securing the very best outcomes for all of our pupils.
Our school, which currently provides a high quality education for just Year R, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils this academic year, will welcome new Reception children each September until it reaches capacity in 2022.
We moved into our brand new state of the art school building in April 2019 and are able to offer a vibrant environment for the right candidate, comprising of a stunning library, food technology room, intervention rooms and colourful, well equipped, breakout spaces and potential for a forest school area.
Our school has already developed a strong community, whereby, staff, parents and children are flourishing through working, learning and playing together. Providing our children with a rich and varied experiences encourages our children to develop independence and confidence.
