Welcome ...

Ms A Maxted and the staff welcome you to the website of Cheriton Primary School, the school is situated on the western edge of the seaside town of Folkestone, Kent.

Cheriton is a friendly school community, where adults work to ensure every child fulfils their potential.

We enjoy having a positive relationship with our local community and this ensures our children have a very broad and exciting learning experience.

Please use the links above to 'look around' the school, but better still, do contact the school office to make an appointment to visit in person.

 Eco Car

This year as usual, we entered our two electrically powered go-karts into the   Eco-Car project.We spent several weeks construction the cars, designing and making body panels, coming up with an identity for our teams, learning to drive safely and competitively. This enabled us to enter the Grand Prix meeting at Gillingham on Sunday 16th June.

We had a great day of racing, and both of our teams done exceedingly well. The 'Jammie Dodgers' had some technical difficulties, but still managed to get some good race finishes. The 'Stormbreakers' team did brilliantly. They won four races and drove competitively to get 2nd and 3rd in the other two races. The icing on the cake was when Theo won the grand final, making us the fastest car of the day.

Our children, as ever, behaved impeccably and were a credit to the school, themselves and their parents.

We can’t wait till next year!


Congratulations to Phoebe, and how exciting to meet Helen Sharman.

Below is the letter we received from the organisers.

Dear Cheriton school

 I am writing to you on behalf of your pupil Phoebe Hampton   .

Phoebe was runner up in a national Spirograph young designer competition

 And very excitingly, She was presented with her trophy and prize by none other than astronaut Helen Sharman last week in London
