Memories of Fawkham
Fawkham School was founded in 1873. Additions to our school were made in 1904, 1960, 1966, 1994, 2002, 2009 and 2010. A large building programme completed in 2002, was officially opened by Estelle Morris M.P. Secretary of State for Education and Skills. Our learning environment now provides us with four fully resourced classrooms, a hall, a library, a music room, and a new kitchen which opened in 2010, which enables fresh and healthy meals to be cooked on site. In addition to this, we have an outdoor classroom, a playing field, an all weather pitch and extensive woodland and a new wooden gazebo erected in January 2015.
As a school, we are immensely proud of our long and successful history. We are however, never complacent and we continually review our policies in order to keep in line with current changes. It is our prime aim, as much now as in the past, to achieve the highest possible standards in achievement, behaviour and attitude from all our children.
