Welcome ...

Ms A Maxted and the staff welcome you to the website of Cheriton Primary School, the school is situated on the western edge of the seaside town of Folkestone, Kent.

Cheriton is a friendly school community, where adults work to ensure every child fulfills their potential.

We enjoy having a positive relationship with our local community and this ensures our children have a very broad and exciting learning experience.

Please use the links above to 'look around' the school, but better still, do contact the school office to make an appointment to visit in person.

 OFSTED Inspection October 2019

Cheriton Primary School has been one of the first schools in Kent to be inspected under the new Inspection Framework that came became statutory in September 2019.

The opening paragraph of the report captures all that we strive for here at Cheriton and are delighted that OFSTED recognises this.

"Pupils of all cultures and backgrounds thrive in this friendly and welcoming school.They are exceptionally well cared for and nurtured.

One parent said: ‘Cheriton is a place where every child matters and is valued.’

Pupils are very happy at school. They respect and get on well with their teachers. 

Leaders and staff want the very best for all pupils’ academic and personal achievements. Pupils enjoy learning because teachers make it interesting.

The school motto of ‘Learning to Live’ drives all that the school does."

After the report was published the children had a special film afternoon to celebrate all their hard work. Do take time to read the complete  OFSTED report.

If you are a family who will be part of the Unit move between Brunei and Shorncliffe we hope you will consider Cheriton Primary School for your child. Admission forms will be shared with 2RGR personnel in Brunei very soon.

Service families joining the 2nd Btn Royal Gurkha Rifles in Shorncliffe this summer from postings other than Brunei, can apply for a place for children directly to our school office. Please contact Mr Rai who oversees school admissions.

Miss Maxted and Mrs Day ( Headteacher of Guston School, Dover) look forward to meeting families of 2RGR in Brunei during their visit later in the March.
