Welcome to Chilham St Mary’s Primary School

Chilham is a thriving village community and we are proud to be at the heart of village life which the school has been since 1860.   We are a smaller than average village school which teaches children age 5-11 across four classes.  

The children benefit from access to wonderful natural and historic resources right on our doorstep. Chilham castle grounds and lake are generously made available to the school for outdoor learning opportunities. We also house our breakfast and lunchtime meals downstairs in a magnificent Tudor building, the upstairs of which is a hall where we assemble for Worship, music lessons and celebrations. The school works closely with Chilham’s Church, the village hall and the fantastically resourced sports ground and hall, which the children use for sports clubs and PE. We are a voluntary controlled Church of England School so have a Christian Ethos embedded in everything we do.

We hope you will enjoy visiting us on our website and if you are interested in your child joining us; to welcoming you at our school very soon.

Mrs S Sweet – Interim Executive Headteacher
