Work for Us: An introduction to Spring Grove School

At Spring Grove School we offer an outstanding all-round education and a fantastic start in life for boys and girls aged 2 to 11 years.

We are a happy, family prep school that prides itself on nurturing and developing all who join to their full potential. We are able to do this because we have small classes in which our children receive expert attention and tuition, preparing them for both grammar and senior independent schools.

Located in an idyllic 14-acre rural setting close to both Ashford and Canterbury, Spring Grove School is one of the most beautiful playgrounds in Kent. Our school is small enough for us to know every child, as well as their family, and for us to encourage each and every pupil in our care to be self-confident and independent learners. The children at Spring Grove School live and breathe our school motto ‘Always do your best’.

We love the outdoors, we enjoy competition, we sing, dance and play, explore and love to learn. Former pupils look back on their time here as magical and inspiring.

We are an independent day school and a member of the Independent Association of Prep Schools (IAPS). We offer a wide range of subjects, extra-curricular activities and clubs.

We want Spring Grove to be a school that parents, teachers and staff would have wished to attend when they were children. Our teachers are tasked to remember this philosophy when they are planning their lessons and activities – enjoyment is at the heart of everything we do!

We firmly believe Spring Grove School is unique and a great place for children to grow. Come and work for us!
