Our curriculum is well-planned but with a fearless flexibility so that children and adults alike can flourish and make the most of every opportunity that comes our way.

Our school motto, ‘make the impossible possible’ embodies our remarkable mindset which truly challenges every member of our school community to keep getting better and strive for excellence. Unpinned by our Christian ethos and values, we have created a community which gives each individual  a sense of purpose, awe and value so they can’t help but succeed. Our bible verse, ‘We show love and compassion for others by truly helping them, and not merely talking about it.’ (1 John 3:18) demonstrates our commitment to ensuring Kelvedon St Mary’s remains a happy, ambitious and successful school. Together, our pupils, parents, staff and governors work hard and support each other to sustain a professional and positive learning community.

We are eager to share our impressive school with you and tell you about what we have planned next to make our academy even better.
