Spring Grove is a happy, family school for boys and girls aged 2-11 set in 14 acres of beautiful Kent countryside. The school is located in Wye, between Ashford and Canterbury, and close to the high-speed train link into London St Pancras. As an independent prep school it offers a first-class education, preparing children for state grammar and senior independent school entry and scholarships.

Spring Grove offers a wide range of subjects and extra-curricular activities. Our children are happy and confident, and the school is renowned for its friendly, family atmosphere. Spring Grove Nursery, which caters for children from the age of 2 to 4, is on the same site as the Prep school, and while it is a safe and separate space, the preschool children benefit from sharing staff and facilities with the older children in the school. The Nursery also has its own beautiful walled garden where the children play all year round.

Spring Grove launched its Home Learning website in time for lockdown no.1 in 2020, allowing a full timetable to be delivered online through a child-friendly and interactive platform. Every child from Reception class upwards has a school Chromebook and lessons are taught via Google Classroom, allowing a seamless transition from in-school to Home Learning when necessary.

Outdoor learning is integral to the Spring Grove curriculum, and all children from Reception upwards regularly visit the school’s award-winning Forest School, situated on a permanent site near Wye. The school also has an active pupil-led Eco Committee. In 2020 Spring Grove was a Regional Winner in the Better Energy School Awards, as well as achieving the prestigious Eco Council Green Flag Award. The school is also well known for its excellent music, art and drama provision, and is on a two-year journey to full accreditation for Artsmark - a quality standard awarded by Arts Council England.
