Thank you for visiting our website which I hope you will find useful.

Shipbourne School is situated in the beautiful countryside of Kent, nestling at the bottom of Stumble Hill in Shipbourne village.  It is a small school which has served the community since 1852.

We have the capacity for approximately 56 pupils. The children come from the immediate vicinity and further afield from villages such as Hadlow and Plaxtol as well as Tonbridge.

They are taught in three classes – Tinley, Hampton and Fairlawne.  The days are structured to allow for small class and group sizes for the majority of the time.  This unique approach to running the school day allows for focused work to meet the ability and personality of the child, rather than a large cohort.

Staff get to know the pupils quickly and can tailor their lessons to facilitate the learning.  The school has a very active PTA which supports the school in a range of ways to raise money to help us meet the changing demands of life in the 21st century, whilst still retaining the intimate nature of the small school.

Shipbourne School is a family.  It is a place of nurture and understanding, strength and resolve where children can achieve their dreams, and conquer their fears, with the support of those about them.

I look forward to showing you around our lovely school.  Please phone the office to arrange a visit.
