A guide to the Aylesford primary phase.
Welcome to the Aylesford Primary Phase virtual tour
A welcome from the Director of Primary Education
Dear Parents and Carers,
Aylesford School is a vibrant school where students are enthusiastic and motivated to achieve endless possibilities. They are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure that they are happy, confident and that the opportunities that are provided for them are relevant to their needs both now and in the future. The school provides a wonderful learning environment and expert staff who are highly committed to our students.
Aylesford is privileged to be in the unique position of being an all through 4-19 school. Close partnerships between the Primary and Secondary phases offer many opportunities including specialist teaching across the school. Modern Foreign Languages, PE and Music are taught jointly by Primary and Secondary phase staff providing shared expertise and a wider range of resources.
Here at Aylesford, we believe that students should be curious about their learning. Through our engaging curriculum, we ensure that they can foster a passion for learning that will help to develop high aspirations and a lifetime of memories. We believe in ensuring that students receive a well-rounded curriculum; where individual talents can be spotted and nurtured to ensure that all children experience success and reach their full potential.
I am extremely proud to be part of such a friendly school with a caring and nurturing family ethos where both staff and students are encouraged to “respect, aspire and wonder.” I look forward to an exciting year ahead, building on the school’s existing strengths.
Should you have any queries or wish to visit the school, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Lisa Till devised a origami competition for Sixth Form students so they were able to begin their well deserved Easter break. It brought out the competitive streak in many with some eggcellent results! Here are the contributions from 12GLT and 12DRR. https://t.co/UBDAFsc8SW
Year 7 had a lovely achievement assembly last week. Easter eggs were presented for 'Cracking on' over lock down. Year 7 superstars & students who overcame lock down obstacles to complete their work were given vouchers. Below, Ophelia & Kajetan with their awards. Well done all! https://t.co/KSWh604g8o
Mrs Goult silencing a buzzer by sucking out all the atmosphere in a bell jar! This awe-inspiring experiment was only possible thanks to the generous donation of The @WarwickLionsUK Club in funding the vacuum pump & the hard work of our new Science technician Ms Hitchcox https://t.co/pPE2SOUlEF
Here is a picture of the snow moon taken with the Science Department Telescope. The snow moon is a symbol of renewal and celebrate new beginnings such as welcoming all students back on Monday! https://t.co/lNQr0Ratl2
Lateral flow testing is going brilliantly. A huge thank you from us to all the staff & community volunteers and to our students and their families for making the testing process go so smoothly.
