History of Boughton School High achieving school in Canterbury

School History

1905 – 2007

The original school buildings were opened in Boughton in 1905 when the existing church school moved from under the Methodist Chapel. In 1946 the school amalgamated with the school at Boughton Church with additional classrooms being built in the 1970's and subsequently mobile classrooms being added to the grounds.

In late 2007 the existing Victorian building was modernised allowing us to transform the wonderful old building into a high quality resource area for staff and pupils with better storage facilities, upgraded technology, dedicated teaching spaces, modern toilet facilities for staff and a multi-purpose school hall.

April 2008 – School Amalgamation

In April 2008 following a short but very successful federation, Boughton-under-Blean Methodist Primary School amalgamated with Dunkirk Village School on the existing Boughton site. We subsequently became known as Boughton-under-Blean & Dunkirk Primary School. The school remains a Methodist Voluntary Controlled School and will continue to serve the two village communities of Boughton-under-Blean and Dunkirk and the surrounding hamlets.

To recognise and celebrate this event we also have a new school badge, created by Kyra Foad one of our infant children, which was chosen following a design competition amongst our children.

September 2008 – School Extension

September 2008 saw the opening of our wonderful new seven classroom extension. This exciting new facility also includes a modern office/reception area, a central area for small group working, a library and new children’s toilets.

This follows on from the modernisation in late 2007 of our existing Victorian building. The modernisation allowed us to transform the wonderful old building into a high quality resource area for staff and pupils with better storage facilities, upgraded technology, dedicated teaching spaces, modern toilet facilities for staff and a multi-purpose school hall.

Dunkirk School Site Closed

Sadly the amalgamation of the two schools and opening of our new school building meant the old Dunkirk School site closed. Opened in 1846 following the Courtney Uprising, the school served the locality for 162 years.
