Welcome toKeston Church of England Primary School
Headteacher Keston C.E Primary School is a one-form entry Voluntary Controlled Academy situated in the heart of beautiful Keston Village. Our school is part of the Aquinas Multi Academy Trust, a group of schools that share a similar educational vision and values .
Our principal aim is to be a caring and compassionate Christian school where self-esteem is lovingly nurtured in a happy and safe environment and where we strive to enable all pupils to achieve their full potential.
“What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it? It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.” The parable of the mustard seed. Mark 4:30-32 (NIV)
The parable of the mustard seed is a key passage that reflects so much of our school vision and motto In God’s hands, we love, learn and grow. It can be a metaphor for our children, who blossom during their time here ready for the next stage of their journey. Each child is nurtured here, and enabled to flourish through our teaching and care. We treat every child with the dignity and respect they deserve as children of God. Each child is like a mustard seed, and each child grows in our school community and is supported by that same school community.Read More
Church of England Education Trust
At Aquinas, we work together so that our learners have an exceptional education; one where individuality is celebrated, talents are nurtured and progress is sustained from early years to Post 16.
Established in 2013, the Trust was founded as a natural development of positive relationships built between neighbouring Church of England schools; initially in the Bromley area. In November 2018, we added two community schools to our family, Rye College and Rye Community Primary School in East Sussex.find out More
