Secondary Schools

Weald of Kent Grammar School

Tudeley Ln, Tonbridge TN9 2JP, UK – 01732 373500

When I toured round the school it seemed dull, lifeless and not memorable. A few of my friends go there and they seem happy but they say the head teacher isn’t that nice.

Going to have experience of this wonderful school, heard lots of nice and positive feedback so far. ☺

The Judd School

Brook Street, Tonbridge TN9 2PN, UK – 01732 770880

Pretty good school. As you would expect from any school, some teachers are better than others. Having said that, throughout my time at Judd, I have been thoroughly impressed by the level of teaching and the help and guidance available from staff. The school also enjoys a strong community spirit and as you can probably tell from some of the other reviews, has a healthy rivalry with Skinners. I will definitely miss my time as a student here as I move on to uni this year.

The Judd School is a great place to learn for secondary school students. It has a brilliant reputation for its high grades and excellent teaching. I am personally a student at this school and from my experience, the teachers make well-structured lessons and are always willing to answer questions and help students excel further. However, this is surprisingly not a "sink or swim" place. The buildings and facilities are sufficient, especially the science, technology and music departments. The Judd School even allows students to use the facilities for "super-curricular" activities and competitions.

Cage Green Primary School

Cage Green Rd, Tonbridge TN10 4PT, UK – 01732 354325

The headteacher is better than the previous, and i have seen many changes to the school since i first joined in 2012. Most of the teachers are very friendly and they encourage the children to learn new things throughout their journey in the school. This school might have been hated by others, but i have a opposite opinion to the 1 star raters.

I had a great time at Cage Green! I made many friends in Sunshine Club, the teachers were very supportive and kind and the lessons were quite fun! It was all three years ago...Gosh, time does fly! XD
