• ''Pupils thrive in the caring, nurturing environment of this small village school" Ofsted 2022


Stelling Minnis CEP School is 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, the 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. In our last Ofsted inspection (June 2022) we were pleased that the school received a ‘Good’ judgement, and in our SIAMS inspection were judged 'Outstanding' as a Church school. We welcome visitors to the school, so please get in touch to arrange an appointment.

Our Vision:

Our school exists to make each child into a shining star, so that they flourish personally, socially and academically; to be the best they can be, reflecting the light and love of Jesus Christ.

Our Values:

We teach the children to shine through the values of:

Love Respect and Perseverance
