Frequently asked questions:

Please don't hesitate to contact us via office@bidborough.kent.sch.uk if you have any more questions.

What is your catchment area?

We don't have a strict catchment area. Admissions are controlled by Kent and based on the usual criteria of children with additional needs, siblings and then distance. We have children with us from Bidborough, Southborough, Tonbridge and across Tunbridge Wells. If you like us, put us down on your preference list!

What schools do the children go to after Bidborough?

One of our challenges is to prepare the children for their next stage in education. These days, the children move on to a wide spread of schools. Generally, between a half and two thirds take up grammar school places in Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge.

  • The Judd School
  • The Skinners' School
  • Tunbridge Wells Grammar School for Boys
