Welcome message from Headteacher

Frances Nation Headteacher

On behalf of the children, staff and governors, I’d like to welcome you to Herne Bay Junior School. We are a large four form entry junior school situated directly next to Herne Bay Infant School with which we have strong links. We hope you find our website informative and easy to navigate. It is designed to give you a flavour of the vibrant life of our school, the work of our pupils and the high quality education we strive to deliver. 



We recognise that all children are unique individuals with specific talents and needs. We want children to be excited about coming to school and to love learning. We want them to be motivated, tuned in and challenged. Most of all, we want children to know that success is in each and every one of them and comes as a result of their own effort.  We want to bring it out.  We want to give them the belief that they can improve and learn, and to be delighted and proud of their many achievements.

We offer our children a varied and engaging curriculum that is provided by a dedicated team of enthusiastic and hard-working teachers and support staff. You’ll find our classrooms are hives of activity, full of learning and enquiry. The happiness and success of every child is central to our school’s work. Promoting high levels of achievement in all aspects of a child’s development is important to us, and is reflected in all we do.



We continuously work hard to develop what we do, and aspire to being a learning community that educates and nurtures young minds. We want our children to think independently, be resourceful, solve problems, and communicate well. A successful school relies on partnership and understanding with parents and the community that it serves. This website is intended to contribute to this partnership. Please don't hesitate to contact us or, better still, come and visit and 'feel' the school for yourself.
