Istead Rise Primary School
Head of School: Mr M. Currie
Executive Headteacher: Mrs J. Olivier
Istead Rise Primary School is situated in the village of Istead Rise which nestles in the beautiful North Kent countryside between Gravesend and Meopham. The school benefits from extensive grounds which offer many opportunities for outdoor learning including Forest Schools and their own heated swimming pool.
At present they have over 300 pupils on roll across their eleven classes. Due to their recent move to single aged group classes they currently have two form entry from Foundation to Year 4, the expectation is that Istead Rise will become a two form entry school in the near future. Istead Rise is part of the highly successful Swale Academies Trust and this partnership has led to significant improvements across the school.
In addition to their attractive grounds Istead Rise benefits from a strong committed staff team, proactive Friends Association and a Parent Council. The school is well supported by parents and the children at Istead Rise are friendly, well behaved and eager to learn
