Summer Fete at Castle a Great Success
We would like to thank all the members of PTA, parents and wider community for making the fete such an enjoyable and exciting event again this year. We look forward to reporting how much we raised.
Well Done for a valiant effort – rugby players!
Our congratulations go to The Chilham Tigers and Chilybrook Wolves for a fantastic performance at the rugby. The Tigers won their first 4 games without conceding a try. They were then overpowered by a strong Challock Panthers team who eventually ran out worthy champions and lost a coule of close games.
The Chilybrook Wolves won 2 of their games; not bad for a team that only formed last week and was made up mostly from Year 3s and 4s!
169 tries were scored in the tournament.

Chilham St. Mary’s Church of England Primary School is a thriving family and community centred school in the heart of beautiful Kent countryside. The children benefit from access to wonderful natural and historic resources literally right on our doorstep. The castle grounds and lake are generously made available to the school for outdoor learning opportunities. We also house our breakfast and lunchtime meals downstairs in a magnificent Tudor building, the upstairs of which is a hall where we assemble for Morning Worship, music lessons and celebrations. The school works closely with Chilham’s Church, the village hall and the fantastically resourced sports ground and hall, which the children use for sports clubs and P.E.
We hope you will enjoy visiting us on our website and if you are interested in your child joining us; to welcoming you at our school very soon.
We pride ourselves on making each child’s journey through our school special and unique with an emphasis on emotionally nurturing each child within a friendly, caring and Christian atmosphere. What is special about our school is how we all work collaboratively so that our children learn in an exciting and motivating way.
In late January 2013, we received an Ofsted inspection which we had been very much looking forward to. Below are some of the comments from that inspection of Chilham St. Mary’s:
Children make a good start to the Early Years Foundation Stage. By the end of Year 6 pupils achieve well and from their starting points pupils make particularly good progress in mathematics where standards are high.
Chilham St. Mary’s currently accepts up to 15 children per year group. The school consists of four classes called the Wrens, Herons, Martins and Peacocks. The Wrens are our youngest – made up of 15 Reception aged children. Years 1 and 2 are The Herons; Years 3 and 4 are The Martins and Years 5 and 6 are the Peacocks.
As at May 15th, 2013 we have places in Years 2, 3, 4 and 5 with 95 pupils on roll. If you are interested in your child joining us, please contact Melanie Woodland on 01227 730442 to make an appointment or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
*The online application process for the September 2013 has now closed in terms of our Reception Year. Places have been allocated and we will be in touch shortly regarding our open evening meetings, et cetera.
