Welcome to our web site. I hope the information outlined below gives you a flavour of the school and our vision for the future. You may also wish to view our School Brochure
, Sixth Form Brochure

for more detailed information about the school.
Maplesden Noakes School is situated in a residential area
, close to the town centre of Maidstone
. The school occupies a 30 acre site
to which the North Downs and the town itself form a pleasant backdrop. The school is an 11-18 co-educational school that has a planned admission number of 180. We are regularly over subscribed and have approximately 970 students on roll of which 160 are currently in the sixth form.
The school has four main aims:
- To improve academic performance across the school
- To develop the use of technologies across all subject areas
- To develop a Business and Enterprise culture
- To equip students with the skills and qualifications that will enable them to be successful in future employment opportunities
Maplesden Noakes is a successful school recognised for having high academic expectations of all its students, as well as for providing a strong and caring pastoral system to support students as they move through the school. We believe these key elements help us to provide an environment in which students flourish and have the opportunity to reach their potential. All students are recognised as individuals and consequently we offer a broad and diverse curriculum to meet their needs. Sport, drama, music, and art are strong features of the school and we encourage students to take part in the many extra curricular activities on offer.
The school has an exciting future. Our development as a specialist school for Business and Enterprise is thriving; we continue to invest in new technologies; we are embracing current changes in education to provide high quality teaching and educational opportunities for our students; the second phase of our building programme will provide extensive sports facilities for school and community use.
If you are looking for a school that develops positive relationships between parents, staff and students, develops students as independent learners, provides learning opportunities beyond the classroom and above all respects students as individuals then we are the school you are looking for. I hope you enjoy browsing our web site and that this generates your enthusiasm to pay us a visit and see the school in action. We are committed to providing your children high quality teaching within an exciting curriculum supported by modern, well equipped facilities.
