Barnsole Primary School is part of the Maritime Multi-Academy Trust, an innovative partnership of schools in Greenwich and Kent. Our schools transform through collaboration and an entrepreneurial curriculum which equips children with life skills.

Barnsole Primary School and Nursery is a three-form community school, located in the heart of Medway. Relationships with children, parents, carers and our wider community sit right at the top of our agenda; together we are stronger.

We are a friendly, inclusive school with a caring ethos and are committed to providing a safe and stimulating learning environment where each one of our children can achieve their potential and flourish both academically and socially.

At Barnsole, we believe that school is the start of a life-long learning journey. Our curriculum is carefully designed, delivered and reviewed to encompass our school values, which underpin everything we do inside and outside the classroom:

Children at Barnsole acquire new knowledge and skills through a progression of exciting topics. We embrace diversity, encourage individuality and strive for excellence. By developing a positive mind-set in our children, they are confident to take risks, work as part of a team and apply this to making a difference within their local community and our wider world.

We firmly believe that every child should be taught by only the best teachers and have the highest of expectations for achievement and behaviour. Self-confidence and self-esteem are nurtured so our children can shape their own futures and be the best they can be.

Overall, we want our pupils to leave Barnsole with a passion and curiosity about the world, thriving from the best possible education, empowered to flourish in life beyond their primary years.
