Welcome to Steephill school

Mrs-Caroline-Birtwell---Head-Teacher.JPGWelcome to Steephill School. If your family is already part of this school or if you are thinking of joining, I hope you find this website helpful. Steephill is a unique school, it offers an education of high standards and expectations but it is small, rural and friendly. We offer as many learning experiences as we can and we endeavour to make those experiences relevant and fun.

We are keen that all the children understand what it is to be a good friend and a good neighbour, in the widest context, and the importance of high standards of behaviour and endeavour.

We are a mixed ability school and therefore work hard to support all children academically and also in the wider curriculum such as sport and the arts. Our great results demonstrate the success of our pupils year after year. 

Academic success has been very high, and this year 97% of our 5 year olds have reached good or higher in the Early Years outcomes compared to Kent average of 72%. In Class 6, on leaving the School, 90% or higher are historically working at a much higher than expected level for that age in maths, English and science. Children succeed very well in gaining the secondary school of their choice.

Enjoy the website and if you have any questions, please contact us. You can also follow us on Twitter, and visit our Facebook page, for all the latest news and pictures from our school. 

Best Wishes

Mrs Birtwell


We were struck by the vision of those in charge at Steephill, as well as the small class sizes plus the politeness of the children as we visited their classrooms. This all gave a friendly, family feel and made it a very easy decision when choosing a school for our son. — Year 1 parent



The core subjects of English, maths and science are taught together with many other subjects: history, geography, RE, French, Spanish, Latin, design & technology, ICT, art and music.

We support children at all ability levels, to ensure they are motivated and engaged.
