Welcome to Stelling Minnis CEP School,

a co-educational Church of England (Voluntary Controlled) Primary School for children aged 4 - 11 years. Set between the beautiful rural villages of Bossingham and Stelling Minnis and close to Canterbury, our school was established in 1784 and is one of Kent’s oldest. We have strong connections with our local churches, good community links and a purpose-built Pre-School on site. We recently had an Ofsted inspection (March 2017), and we are pleased that the school received a ‘Good’ judgement. We welcome visitors to the school, so please get in touch to arrange an appointment - I would be happy to show you around.

Mr John Gray, Headteacher
