Welcome to Chantry Community Academy

I am delighted and proud to share with you our vibrant and diverse primary school in the Riverside area of Gravesend. We are a 2 form entry academy that likes to celebrate the success of every child at every level, encouraging a thirst for learning that continues with our pupils throughout their future school experiences and lives.

We have created a warm, open and welcoming atmosphere at Chantry, focusing on the positive, friendly relationships we have both within the school and also with our parents Visitors to the school comment favourably on the calm, orderly and well behaved environment we have created.

The life of the academy is driven by enthusiasm and a desire for all to achieve academic and individual excellence, regardless of starting points,  ensuring that each child is encouraged and supported to be the best they can be. Our values are embedded in everything we do, underpinned by our RECIPE – Respect, Excellence, Collaboration, Independence, Perseverance and Enjoyment.  This strategy is an integral part of the school, equipping children with the vital skills, both academic and ‘soft’ skills, that they need for secondary school and adult life. We believe that every child can reach their potential with us and our caring and dedicated staff will support them to achieve this.
