Thistle Hill Academy

About the School

Chilmington Green Primary School will open on 1 September 2018 on the site of Finberry Primary School. Our aim is to establish a ‘community within a community’ where Chilmington children will have the benefit of having both Chilmington and Finberry teachers in the same class. Once pupil numbers reach around 30, the school will move into its temporary accommodation*** in Jemmett Road, Ashford.

The school will move into its new state of the art site on the Chilmington Green Development once building works have been completed. It will be a non-selective, non-denominational, two form entry primary free school and nursery. We will also include a Specialist Resource Provision (SRP) for up to 14 pupils with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) for Autistic Spectrum Disorder. At full capacity, 420 primary pupils will attend our purpose built school with access to state of the art facilities right in the heart of this new community.

*** The building on Jemmett Road, (formally the temporary site of Finberry Primary School from September 2015 to July 2017) is a fully equipped school site which will meet the needs of the school before its move into the permanent building.

To get a better idea of what the school will be like, take a look at the other schools within The Stour Academy Trust. All schools in the Trust share the same policies, values and creative curriculum whilst maintaining their individual school identities.

We can't wait to start crafting our own!
