Collage of Wittersham Church by Pupils
Wittersham School children are treated as individuals and
encouraged to become independent learners. The school helps pupils to develop
enquiring minds, a thirst for challenge and a ‘can do’ attitude. Expectations
for learning and behaviour are high and their extensive extracurricular and
enrichment programme highlights their commitment to the individual. The school
aspires for their learning community to achieve high standards by equipping
them with the skills to succeed and inspiring a lifelong love of learning.
As a church school there is a strong Christian ethos and
their school values of respect, kindness, self-worth/perseverance, forgiveness
and love are promoted and embedded within their daily lives. The latest
Anglican School’s Inspection Report graded “the distinctiveness and
effectiveness of Wittersham School as a Church of England school as outstanding
… The school is shaped by its distinctive Christian values.”
Situated between Tenterden and Rye on the B2082. Wittersham CEP School is in a quiet location
close to the church with extensive rural views.
Children come to us from the villages of Wittersham, Stone–in-Oxney and
Appledore and the surrounding area including East Susssex. We are a five class school. Children are taught in small groups with
every child treated as an individual.
Expectations for behaviour are high and the majority of our pupils go on
to either Homewood in Tenterden or Highworth Grammar School for Girls or Norton
Knatchbull Grammar School for boys in Ashford
Wittersham School is a Safeguarding environment. We are committed to encouraging equality and
diversity across all aspects of school life.
Prospective parents are always invited to look around the
school to get a flavour of the learning opportunities we provide
