Choosing the right school for your child to follow on from those formative years at infant school is a decision which will undoubtedly pave the way for his or her success in later years.  At Hempstead Junior School we aim to enable children to reach their full potential by recognising and developing their individual strengths and promoting personal success to last a lifetime.

We believe in creating a well disciplined and stimulating environment in which each child feels secure and motivated to learn.  Each is encouraged to work to the highest standards he or she is able to achieve.

The full range of subjects of the national curriculum is taught at Hempstead Junior School; English (including independent reading and writing), Mathematics, Science, ICT, Geography, History, Music, Art, Design and Technology and Physical Education. Additional subjects are taught to ensure a broadly based and fulfilling school life, notably health education, religious education and a broad based spectrum of extra curricular activities.

Children are given increasing amounts of homework as they progress though the school to support the learning process and to promote independence.

Teacher assessment is a continuous process with regular monitoring in core subjects to ensure that each child is working to his or her full potential.  Special educational needs are identified at the earliest possible stage and catered for with the appropriate level of support.

We also promote the personal development of children by offering guidance throughout their school life, by fostering initiatives and self-discipline and providing for extra curricular activities.  We are proud of our academic, cultural and sporting achievements and of our reputation for all-round excellence.

We welcome parental involvement and believe that each child can only prosper as a result of a good working partnership between teachers and parents.  There is an active Friends' association which provides considerable financial and practical support to the school.  The school's Governing Body is responsible for the general control of the school and for the management of the budget which it receives from Medway Council.

We trust that once you have read our prospectus and seen the school in action you will feel that Hempstead Junior School offers the best educational opportunity for your child.


Under the 1998 Education Reform Act, all junior schools are required to teach the National Curriculum - a scheme of work covering ten subject areas. In addition, all schools are required to provide religious education and collective worship.

At Hempstead Junior School, years 3 to years 6 children cover Key Stage 2 of the National Curriculum leading to Standardised Assessment Tests, which are taken by all pupils in Year 6.
