Enrichment

Enrichment at Herne Bay Junior School is an integral part of the curriculum. It offers the opportunity to bring real life experiences back into the classroom and into the learning. It is our aim for every child to experience an enrichment opportunity at least once a year.
We have developed our ‘Top 20’ as a taste of what is on offer this year.

ADMISSION TO HERNE BAY JUNIOR SCHOOL

Our aim is to establish a happy and caring community where children will quickly feel secure and eager to learn.  It is our hope that parents will feel able to share in any of our activities.  Our joint effort should then ensure that pupils have the best possible opportunity to enjoy school and make excellent progress. We are a four form entry school with excellent facilities, including a large playing field.  We are very proud of our school and welcome all prospective parents to come and have a tour with our Year 6 representatives and an informal chat with Mrs Nation.
