Mrs. Geraldine Shackleton. Head Teacher.


Welcome to Cudham Church of England Primary School. 

We are a small village school founded as a National School in 1851 by a group of local gentlemen including Charles Darwin and the Earl of Stanhope. Our school has a rich and diverse history through which we learn and celebrate.  Our children’s learning journey starts at the age of 2, when children are eligible to join our over-subscribed pre-school.  Our Christian values are promoted in all we do to ensure the success of our pupils academically, spiritually and morally.  All children at Cudham Church of England School are equally valued, supported and challenged in line with our school virtues.

“I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4 V 13

Our school enjoys a rural spot in the Kent countryside where our amazing surroundings are used to enhance our learning.  We have a large Forest School, an outdoor swimming pool, extensive fields, woodland areas, quiet garden and ponds, which we are able to use to support our awe and wonder based curriculum.

We work closely with our local schools and are proud to be part of the Aquinas Trust, a group of Church and Community schools with hubs in Bromley and Rye.

On behalf of our Advisory Council, staff, pupils and families we welcome you to our unique school.
