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.

In our last Ofsted inspection (March 2017) 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.
