SET Felix Primary welcomes its pupils for the new school term

It was an exciting day for all as SET Felix Primary welcomed its pupils for the new school term; following the merger of SET Maidstone and Causton schools and a refurbishment costing more than £300,000.

For many years now we have been working together across two separate sites. As we start this new school year as a brand new school we are excited to finally be working as one team, on one site with all our children and families together. We also enjoy celebrating every step and success of our children with our community as one.

The physical improvements to the school took place during a six-week period over the summer and included extension work to the reception classroom, the specialist provision and the library to provide better facilities for the children to enhance their reading. 

Our school aims to provide an aspirational and well-rounded education for all children in our community. Through our culture of high expectations and excellence, we want every child to become a successful citizen of the world, ready to take on any challenges and adventures in their future. Our aim is for children to grow into confident, thoughtful and highly motivated learners who unlock their potential in a creative and engaging environment.

Head of School, Ms Lucy Thompson said, “In opening our new school, we have worked hard to ensure that our curriculum is ambitious and has the breadth in teaching to empower our children to know more, do more and remember more. Our new facilities include a large open plan Reception class with dedicated outside learning space, all lower floor classrooms having outside learning space and shared library areas. We are fortunate to have unique features such as enrichment sessions on site which are set for all children to enjoy once a week. Through enrichment your children will develop life skills not taught within class, exploring a broad range of activities such as cooking, game playing, languages, team building skills and performing. Pupil’s will also have the opportunity to collaborate with younger and older peers as they work in mixed age groups. Our children also love our WOW days which cover trips out for topic learning, careers days and visitors into school.”

Mr Bill Tancred, British discus thrower and a former pupil at the school also attended the official launch of the school. Mr Tancred, a bronze and silver medallist in successive Commonwealth Games, said: “I just think it is an incredible achievement and what a wonderful school and what I love is the enthusiasm shown by all the pupils as they strive to progress in life.”
