Our academy is a happy, caring and secure community which offers a stimulating learning environment. By developing potential and self-esteem we help everyone to become a unique, responsible, considerate and successful individual.
The Academy was opened in 1954 to serve the southern part of the Shepway Estate and the roads leading to it. It caters for boys and girls from the age of four to eleven years. It is well equipped, having its own library, dining hall, assembly hall, sports field and nature reserve.
At Molehill, we aim to give every child the very best start possible to their education through vibrant and engaging teaching, enabling the children to become active learners and by using an exciting, broad and balanced curriculum.
Throughout the school, we want our children to enjoy a wide range of experiences which bring the curriculum to life and make learning fun. All our staff work hard to ensure the best possible quality of education for the children in every year group.
Our website aims to give you a taster of what we do at Molehill, along with a range of information. I hope you find it useful. Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you require further information.

What People Say
At the end of every lesson I know a bit more than before.
Year 6 pupil
I can’t wait to come back and work with the children and staff in the future. During every session the children were exceptional and a real credit to the school.
Chris Cook, Olympic Swimmer
I am very impressed with the wonderful work being undertaken at Molehill.
Louisa Felstead, Business Partnerships Manager
The academy is making effective use of the primary physical education and sport funding. The funding is spent in a range of ways to enhance the existing provision for physical education. These include membership of the Maidstone School Sports Partnership, which helps to enhance the skills of pupils and teachers and therefore improve outcomes for pupils.
Leadership in the hearing impaired unit is effective and ensures that pupils’ needs are met well and that they are appropriately supported when they learn in class with other pupils.
I observed praise and encouragement in each class that we entered. Children were being encouraged to be creative, express ideas and explore options before making choices.
