National Society Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools Report (SIAMS) - June 2015

About Us

Archbishop Courtenay Church of England Primary School is situated near to Maidstone town centre, catering for children between the ages of 3 – 11. There are 306 pupils on roll, 284 in the main school and 22 in our onsite nursery. The school building contains 11 classrooms, a library and purpose built ICT suite, as well as a nursery.

Our state of the art buildings provide an excellent environment for learning. In addition to this, our substantial grounds provide a superb area to develop our out of the classroom curriculum. This allows our children to experience safe and exciting practical lessons that further stimulate their creative imaginations.

As a Church of England primary school we have strong links with All Saints’ Church in Maidstone as well as our wider local community. Over the years we have developed an excellent partnership with St Michael’s Schools’ Federation and we are continuing to collaborate on many joint projects.

In September 2014 we became the first sponsored school within the Diocese of Canterbury Academies Trust (Aquila) The school continues to go from strength to strength and in 2015 we received a ‘Good’ grade following our SIAMS inspection. In March 2014 Ofsted reported that ‘senior leaders have improved teaching and learning and accelerated pupils’ progress at an impressive rate’.

“Our vision is to create an outstanding, flagship school serving our
local community, unlocking and developing the potential of all our
wonderful children”
