Welcome from the Principal

About Us

A very warm welcome to Bearsted Primary Academy. We are a very new academy but we have achieved so much already, despite opening in a pandemic.

We started with one Nursery and two Reception classes and then expanded to include a mixed Year 1 and 2 class. So, it is really exciting to have almost doubled in size and to now include KS2.

As a new academy, we are very fortunate to have a spacious, attractive and modern building.  Inside, we have well resourced classrooms that foster challenging and independent learning. Outside, we have an expansive field, MUGA, trim trail area and developing Forest School provision.  The Early Years classes have their own outdoor areas allowing them to continue their learning and development in a safe, purposeful environment.

A broad and balanced curriculum is at the heart of an aspirational and successful school.  To enhance our curriculum delivery, we are currently a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP). This is an inquiry led framework that fosters independent learners and posits personal success as essential for academic achievement, fostering independent learners who continue to thrive.

We  would love to meet you, so please contact us to arrange a visit and see for yourself.

Very best wishes.

Mrs Jane Tipple | Principal
