Our amazing History

Elliott Park School was founded as an Independent School by the late Richard Fielder, with a class of twelve pupils in September 1985, based in buildings in Sheerness. It moved to its present, purpose-built site, including a Head Teacher’s house, in April 1986.

The school caters for the age range of 3 - 11 and can accomodate up to 70 children on-roll (including the Nursery), with a full complement of well-qualified staff.

The school is a friendly, purposeful establishment with a track record of success and an air of progressive optimism, enjoying excellent parental support in a traditional environment. 'Pupils thrive at this school' and 'they are polite, engaging and articulate', is how Ofsted described us in our most recent inspection of November 2019.

In September, 2011 we opened our 'Little Sunbeams' Nursery, taking children from the age of  3.  We obtained Early Years Funding from KCC entitling children for up to 15 hours free funding a week in January, 2012.


It is our belief that education is a route to the well-being of the individual. We believe in equal opportunities for all the children in our school, irrespective of social background, culture, race, gender or ability. In order to ensure future progress and success, we aim to provide a curriculum that is broad and balanced. It is our belief that we should provide a learning environment that is motivating, exciting and caring, in order for a child to develop a sense of high self-esteem and academic achievement.
