Exciting news - planning permission has been granted, and our funding agreement is signed. Offers have been sent out for our 60 available places. The school site in Somerhill Green, South Tonbridge may look like wasteground now, but a state-of-the-art temporary building will be in place and ready to welcome our founding reception children in September 2017. New applications are welcome, and will be added to our reserve list.


Welcome to Bishop Chavasse Primary School. I hope that once you have browsed our website, you will believe that ours is a school with a difference.

We are a brand new school opening in September 2017, with a commitment to ensuring the highest quality education and care for your children. As part of the Tenax Schools Trust, our Christian values and ethos will drive our passion for outstanding teaching and learning. This will enable children to flourish at school, enjoy their learning, and make excellent progress.

The school will be open Monday to Friday from 7.30 am to 6.00 pm (including school holidays) and provide full wrap-around care for families who need this provision.

When children leave Bishop Chavasse Primary School they will be ambitious, successful, happy children, fully prepared for the next stage at any secondary school.

Opening in September 2017, our school will adopt proven and effective approaches to learning, embedding a ‘mastery’ approach from the start and securing the very best outcomes for our pupils.
