Bryony School is a non-selective independent primary school in Rainham, Kent established in 1956.

Our curriculum will prepare your child for the senior schools of choice through a balanced and broadly based education, from their first days in our preschool through to the age of 11.

We have a strong reputation for high academic standards within a warm and friendly learning environment. We keep class sizes small which enables all children to feel secure, happy and confident.

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 are 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. 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 enthusiastic, dedicated and talented staff who work in partnership with parents to support each child’s learning.

Junior pupils are taught by specialist teachers. 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.

Throughout 2020, Bryony School provided certainty, consistency and structure at a time when all were hard to come by. Our exceptional programme of Online Learning provided our pupils with continuous and uninterrupted education via the Google for Education suite including Google Meet online lessons and Google Classroom to set and receive children’s work. We are so proud of the overwhelming support and praise we received from Bryony School families.

Our friendly school office team remains open, ready to talk to you about your child’s educational future.
