Hugh Christie is a very exciting place to be! Well over a million pounds has been invested in new resources resulting in the use of the latest technologies and teaching methods available to all our students. Our examination results continue to improve year on year and we have also earned the reputation as a “leading edge school” both nationally and internationally.


In April 2010, Hugh Christie formed a partnership, known as the Tonbridge Federation, with Long Mead Community Primary School. This means that the governing body and Federation Principal oversee both schools. The purpose of this federation is to enable both schools to work together more strategically on shared objectives and to develop community partnerships that will benefit children and their families.


In our Ofsted inspection of December 2017, we have achieved overall status as a ‘Good’ school. The sixth form provision is still among the best in Kent.


Our vision for the school is summarised in the following statement;


  • Securing good and moving to outstanding in leadership and management, outcomes, teaching and assessment, personal development, welfare and attendance, leadership and management, safeguarding and outcomes 

  • Working to ensure that every child achieves their very best.

  • Narrowing the gaps between disadvantaged children and others. We will monitor this by scrutinising the annual report on the use and impact of Pupil Premium funding.

  • Providing the edge.

  • Developing Leadership and British Values.

  • Building for the future.
