Welcome to Shenstone School



"To infinity and beyond,” Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story

This quote best sums up our intentions and aspirations for the pupils at Shenstone School. We strive to do our best to put in place support systems and strategies that will meet the holistic development and learning needs of our amazing pupils at Shenstone School. Every child is an individual and as such we diligently work as a school team, and with wider multi-agency support teams, to ensure that our curriculum delivery recognises this individuality supporting each child with their life-long learning journeys.  

Shenstone School is a special primary school for children who have severe and or complex learning difficulties within the London Borough of Bexley. All pupils who attend Shenstone School have Education and Health Care Plans. We are one of two special schools within The Kemnal Academies Trust (TKAT). 

Shenstone School is one school based across two sites; one in Sidcup and one in Crayford. For the academic year 2021-2022, Shenstone School also has a satellite class located at Parkway Primary School in Thamesmead, supporting 6 pupils. 

Paramount to our ethos is support for all - pupil, family and staff engagement is at the heart of all that we strive for. We work hard to ensure that Shenstone is a safe, happy, welcoming and truly outstanding place for our pupils to thrive. Our school benefits from impressive facilities across all school sites, enabling us to offer a wide range of opportunities and activities to enhance learning both inside and outside the classroom.

Our pupils are amazing and the progress that they make on a regular basis is inspiring. Regardless of how small or large the successes, we are very proud of the children and pleased to be able to be there to contribute to and support their achievements. The values and ethos of "together we engage, thrive and achieve" is entwined through all that we do at Shenstone School. As the Executive Head Teacher of Shenstone School, it is truly an honour to work with such fantastic children and to be part of a very committed staff team.
