Sedley’s School was founded in 1638 by Sir John Sedley, a local landowner keen to provide quality education to the children of Southfleet village. His Coat of Arms forms the basis of the School's badge. Today the school is still based in the same building he established all those years ago. Following the school extension of two new classrooms and a lift, Sedley's held a Service of Opening and Dedication with guest of Honour Mr Frank Meakin (former School Governor from 1947-1999).
Our methods of teaching have moved on immeasurably but the same commitment to learning, community and, most importantly, fulfilling the potential of every child, has remained throughout our school’s long history.
Sedley’s is an unashamedly Christian school, working with the Church of England. All our teaching, particularly of social responsibility, moral awareness and community cohesion is taught from a Christian perspective, which includes respect and tolerance of the beliefs of others. For this reason a child does not have to be from a Christian background to benefit from being at Sedley’s.
We hope we will soon be welcoming you and your child at Sedley’s School.
