This section of our website describes our approach to helping our pupils to become well-rounded, resilient and confident.

Hobbies, Skills and Experiences

Our teachers and other staff seek to discover and nurture at least one special talent within each child. There is something for everyone in our extracurricular programme, which is packed full of music, dance, drama and sport.

As your children progress through their education, typical outings and trips might include learning about World War II at the Imperial War Museum, exploring the solar system at the Science Museum and finding out about the Tudors at Ightham Mote in Sevenoaks.

Every Pupil has a Friend

We want the academy to feel friendly and welcoming and we always make sure that every pupil has at least one friend. Our children are taught to respect each other and their teachers.

There is a clear approach to dealing with any bullying that arises. All incidents are investigated and staff use a range of methods, from restorative approaches to engaging parents and setting up behaviour plans, to ensure the experience does not repeat and establish as a pattern.

Traditional Standards of Behaviour

Our academy is relaxed and comfortable but pupils know that good behaviour is expected of them. They are frequently praised and rewarded for trying their best and for being kind, hard-working and well-behaved.
