Working with us at Paddock Wood Primary Academy: Paddock Wood Primary Academy is a thriving and engaging three-form entry school in the heart of West Kent. Our ethos encapsulates high standards and expectations and the positive wellbeing of our pupils and colleagues. We are a comparatively large school (600+ pupils), set in the town of Paddock Wood in the Kent countryside. Our academy benefits from significant parent and community support, but we are not complacent - we are committed, hard-working and welcoming. Our children are delightful; calm, focused and very eager to learn.
Being part of Leigh Academies Trust: As of September 2019, our Trust is comprised of 25 geographically organised academies (11 secondaries, 13 primaries and 1 special) educating over 15,000 students, and employing over 2,500 talented staff. We also have three further academies in development phase, due to open between September 2020-2021.
