Horsted Junior School
Barberry Avenue, ME5 9TF, UK Chatham
+44 (0)1634-861794


Horsted Junior School serves the Davis Estate area of Chatham.

Pupils are taught in straight National Curriculum year groups.  There are two classes per year group and each class has an attached Teaching Assistant for part of the school day.  Pupils are split into two sets for Literacy and Numeracy from Y4.

 Our uniform is brown and yellow.

We have many excellent facilities at our school, including a library with internet access, an IT suite, physio room, and recently, we have added interactive whiteboards and laptops to every class to help the teachers deliver the curriculum.

In terms of organisation, the school is divided into four 'houses' called Amherst, Bridgewood, Clarence and Delce, all named after Roman forts in the local area. Every child is assigned a house when they start school.

We have lots of events through the school year here at Horsted. As you can see from the photo on the right, we even let the children wear their own clothes sometimes! (OK that's a character day photo from a dressing up day).

We also hold fairs, coin races, mothers and fathers day sales, and Year 6 perform a musical after the SATs each year. (Grease this year by the way).


Pupils at Horsted Junior School will develop:

  • potential

  • creativity

  • responsibility

  • maturity

  • independence

  • talents

  • citizenship


If the school is oversubscribed, the LEA will allot places using the following over-subscription criteria. They are listed in priority order:

* Children in public care for whom the school is the nearest appropriate.

* Attendance at the ‘paired’ infant school or schools. (Details of the pairing

between schools are given on the list of the schools listed in the LEA

Admissions booklet.)

* Denominational preference. (For church controlled schools.)

* Current family association. (A brother or sister in the school at the time

of application.)

* Child’s health reasons. (Medical evidence must be provided which

demonstrates a specific health reason that requires a child to attend the

preferred school.)

* Nearness of children’s homes and ease of access to schools.

Our admission number is 60 pupils per year group.

The school also caters for a small number of physically disabled children (from a wider area) who are fully integrated into all aspects of school life.

We work closely with the Infant school, so that the transfer of children takes place with ease. We receive full information on the educational and social progress of each child so that schoolwork can be geared to their needs immediately.



Pupils are taught in straight National Curriculum year groups. There are two classes per year group and each class has one full time and one part time Teaching Assistant. Pupils are split into two sets for Literacy and Numeracy from Y4.


All children have full access to the National Curriculum. This consists of five core subjects; English, Mathematics, Science, Information Communication Technology and Religious Education. The foundation subjects are Design and Technology, History, Geography, Art, Music and Physical Education. Citizenship is called Health and Relationships in this school.

National Curriculum documents, school policies and schemes of work are available to parents upon request.

The school had an extremely successful OFSTED inspection in January 2000 and a summary of the report is available on request. The full report can be downloaded from

P.E. Kit

It is vital for the health and safety of the children that they change for P.E. Therefore all children must have trainers or plimsolls.

A change of clothes is essential and the school P.E. kit is the same for both girls and boys: a white round neck T-shirt and black shorts. Boys and girls who play football require football boots and shin pads. Please do not buy leotards for school use. P.E. kit should be kept in school at all times.

All equipment must be kept in a P.E. bag (not a carrier bag) that can be hung from a peg. Please do not send weekend bags, duffle bags and rucksacks to school. We have no

storage space for them, they obstruct the corridors, cause danger with tripping and could be lethal in a fire emergency.

All clothing and footwear should be clearly marked with the child’s name. Please ensure that coats have a tape to hang them by.
