Welcome To Temple School

We are an LEA maintained Boys School which takes pride in offering a first-class education to boys of all abilities.

The keys to this are What we teach and How we teach.

We have an exciting and dynamic Curriculum which allows all boys to fulfil their potential and achieve success. This success is the result of excellent teaching by a professional staff who are sympathetic to the needs of individual students in their charge.

We pride ourselves on the school's relaxed but disciplined atmosphere. Essential for our success as a School is our on-going policy of forging strong relationships with parents as partners in the educational process.

I hope you visit us. Seeing a school in action is the best way to judge if it is right for your child. To arrange a visit, telephone us for a suitable time. Finally, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries or issues you wish to discuss.

Yours sincerely,

N. J. McAree


All students follow the National Curriculum at Key Stage Three (Years 7, 8 and 9). These subjects include: English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, Information Technology, Modern Languages, Physical Education, Technology, Music, Art, Personal, Social and Health Education (P.S.H.E.) and Sex Education. Religious Education is compulsory for all students unless parents make a formal request to have their son withdrawn.

In addition all boys are taught Drama, and German is introduced as an additional Modern Language in Year 8.

The Curriculum at Key Stage Four is enriched by extending the range of subjects on offer through the options system. All courses lead to formal qualifications - GCSE or GNVQ. All boys study English (Language and Literature), Mathematics, Science (Double Award), P.E., R.E., P.S.H.E., a Technology and an Arts based subject.

In addition they opt for a Path leading to 8, 9 or 10 GCSEs in total. This includes a range of subjects including History, Geography, Statistics, Information Technology, Leisure and Tourism, Engineering, French and notably Enrichment Studies which includes weekly attendance at Mid-Kent College.

In addition extra curricular activities are offered such as:

Residential visits to University
Steel Band
Variety of Sports with teams and fixtures
Saturday School - provided by the King's School Rochester
Homework Clubs targeted at GCSE Students
Theatre visits
Outdoor Pursuits
Residential Visits to Europe
Variety of Department trips
We have a mini-bus to travel to out-of-school activities and fixtures.

In most subjects boys are taught in sets of ability. These are constantly reviewed to enable later developers to reach their full potential. Tutor groups are mixed ability. We have smaller class sizes for core subjects. All students are carefully monitored and mentored by staff in order for targets to be set, to ensure that positive progress is maintained. Twice each year Parents are invited to visit the school to receive a progress statement aligned to the National Curriculum or GCSE Grades. These opportunities are called Academic Review Days. A third statement is sent home at the end of the Academic Year. Staff use a variety of teaching methods to ensure the needs of all students are met and that they have full access to the Curriculum.


All boys are expected to wear a full school uniform which consists of a black blazer with a school badge, a white or grey shirt, a school tie, grey or black trousers and black shoes. Please note that we do not allow trainers, rings or earrings (except studs) to be worn in school.

All uniform items are available from:

At Temple School, we follow a policy of equality of opportunity in its broadest sense. This means that, for students who do have learning difficulties we will ensure additional provision to meet their needs.

For most SEN class teachers are trained to offer specific extra help.

Where the need is greater we offer small group sessions with an Individualised Learning System (ILS).

During 2002 we renewed our Basic Skills Quality Mark as a sign of our commitment to continuously raising standards of literacy and numeracy.

Through the S.E.N. Co-ordinator, we have strong links with outside agencies which supplement what we can do at school to help. The outside agencies include the Educational Psychology Service, the Behavioural Support Service and the Educational Welfare Office.

In short, we try our hardest to cater for the needs of all our students so that all can feel they have achieved to the best of their abilities.
