Tenax Schools Trust operates across Kent and East Sussex. It has a close working relationship with both the Diocese of Rochester and the Diocese of Chichester, both of whom support the work of the Trust. Likewise, it collaborates with the local authorities of Kent and East Sussex in providing excellent educational opportunities for local children and young people.
Tenax Schools Trust aims to offer schools wide opportunities for mutual support and partnership, in particular through the practical sharing of leadership, educational and pedagogical expertise, resources and joint professional development.
The Trust supports its local governing bodies in their important role of working with the Headteacher of each school to ensure high standards are maintained. Local governing bodies have a central role to play in preserving the identity of each school and building and maintaining strong links to the community it serves.
Bishop Chavasse School was successfully opened as a primary free school in 2017, by the Tenax Trust and we are situated in a new build on a site in South Tonbridge, we are a growing and developing school, with our approach based on the Trust’s foundational principles and ethos.
