Information for prospective parents -
Welcome to Claremont

If your child was born between 1.09.2017 and 31.8.2018, they will be due to start school in September 2022. Prospective parents for entry to Reception class are invited to attend an Open Morning on Thursday 25th November from 9.15am.

This is subject to COVID restrictions and if numbers are high, the event may be cancelled at short notice.

As there is lots of information below and on this website to share with members of your family, numbers are limited and to keep everyone as safe as possible, we are restricting attendance at the Open Morning to only ONE person per family. Please do not bring any children or babies with you.

Please email jodi.stevens@claremont.kent.sch.uk to make a booking:
Please email with the following information:
  • Your child's date of birth
  • Your contact telephone number
The format will be as follows:
  • Please arrive for 9.15am.
  • Entrance is via the Banner Farm Road gate. Please note there is no parking on site and parking restrictions in the local area.
  • There will be a short tour of the school in small groups with our current Year 6 children.
  • Refreshments will be available following the tours.
  • There will be a short presentation in the hall, followed by a Q&A session with an estimate of sibling numbers for 2022.
  • Finishing by 10.45am.

In the meantime, we have put together some information below which we hope will give you a flavour of our school:


Below is our 50th anniversary video which captures a day in the life of our school:


In addition there are two informal tours of the school below. All our year groups have done a small section for the film:


The last presentation provides a summary of facts and figures about the school and the admissions process which, together with our comprehensive website, will hopefully answer any further questions you may have. It includes previous distances offered and the estimated number of siblings we were expecting in September 2021:
