Bryony School is an independent primary school in Rainham, Kent established in 1956. We aim to provide the best possible start for every child aged up to 11 years.

We keep class sizes typically around 10 to 14 children which enables all children to feel secure, happy and confident within a warm and friendly environment.

Teachers really know and understand every single child. Equally the children themselves know everyone and follow other children’s successes, performances and sporting records as they pass through the school. Some parents are former pupils and some teachers former parents which all helps add to the strong community feel here.

Children play and interact with different classes and age groups much more than they would in a larger school. This gives them a confidence and empathy which prepares them well for secondary school. However, we do not believe in mixing our Year groups. We provide an equality of opportunity and experience which favours every boy and girl and allows each to reach their potential.

Pupils benefit from outstanding teaching by our dedicated and talented staff who work in partnership with parents to support each child’s learning.

Junior pupils are taught by specialist teachers for all subjects. We offer a wide breadth of subjects and activities, pursued to the highest levels. We have consistently high expectations of every child which leads them to achieve remarkable results. Academic success is reflected in our excellent track record in the Medway and Kent 11 plus selection tests.
