The Canterbury Primary School

Our school is set in spacious accommodation, close to the city, with extensive grounds giving the feeling of being in the countryside.


We believe that every child walks with genius and is good at something. We strive in improving their life chances and helping within the community.


Our aim is to provide as much as possible, as often as possible, for as many as possible so that our children leave as confident individuals, proud of what they have acheived and are ready for their next stage of learning.

We are a friendly school where the children really do come first and where children and staff alike are encouraged to achieve their personal best within a friendly, caring and nurturing environment.  


Come and discover the opportunities and unrivalled facilities available on The Canterbury Campus by browsing the website here.


Visitors are welcome to come and meet the staff and see in person the facilities available.


In 2017, The Canterbury Primary School was ranked in the top 50 performing schools in the county, based on 36 different criteria. We were identified as having many strengths, such as “making above average progress”.

The article below is a brief overview of how we compare to local schools.
