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 both grammar and senior independent school entry and scholarships.
Spring Grove offers a wide range of subjects and extra-curricular activities. Our teaching is research-led and innovative, with a growth mindset that encourages curiosity, resilience and a love of learning. In January 2023 the school opened a new Pre-Prep building to further improve the provision for Reception and KS1 children. 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.
Outdoor learning is integral to the Spring Grove curriculum, and all children from Nursery upwards regularly visit the school's award-winning Forest School, situated on a permanent site near Wye. The school has an active pupil-led Eco Committee, and is an Eco Council Green Flag school.
The creative and performing arts are also an important part of everyday life for all Spring Grove children with specialist music, dance and art teachers. Pupils have regular opportunities to perform in concerts, assemblies and shows. This year Spring Grove hopes to achieve its Artsmark status - a quality standard awarded by Arts Council England.
