A warm welcome to our website. Thank you for your interest in our school; we hope you find what you are looking for but if not please contact us and we will be happy to help.

We are a large and thriving school: a happy, working community, with our children at the core.

We have a whole-child approach to teaching and learning. This means we strive not only for the high academic standards we consistently achieve but also for the development of each child’s social, emotional, behavioural, moral and communicative skills. 

"Our children benefit from being surrounded by nature..."

We offer a carefully structured, varied and exciting curriculum designed to engage and enthuse our learners, inspiring them, we hope, to begin a lifelong thirst for discovery and knowledge.

We want to open their minds to knowledge and skills, and their eyes to “awe and wonder,” through the experiences we give them. We are encouraging them to be inquisitive, creative and confident people.

We are very lucky to be set within a beautiful part of the London Borough of Bexley, in Bursted Wood. Our children benefit from being surrounded by nature as well as close to local amenities and transport routes into London.
