Admissions and Open Events

We have taken the difficult decision to cancel our open evenings planned for this year. We feel that with the recent increase in the Covid-19 infection rates in some places and severe pressure on testing, reducing the number of possible social contacts between people from other schools and Hugh Christie staff is best.

Our aim at Hugh Christie are that every child will be happy, successful and well prepared for adult life. We provide an innovative curriculum, excellent care, good exam results and a successful well established Sixth Form. Places are offered to children in Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks, Edenbridge, West Malling and other surrounding towns and villages.
