Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Graveney School. At Graveney we aim to provide an excellent education which not only reflects current developments but also reinforces traditional values and skills. We believe that education should take place in a disciplined atmosphere where pupils are encouraged to learn effectively. In this way, all pupils can achieve their best and become confident, responsible adults, ready to make a positive contribution to the society in which they live and work. We are a school committed to the serious business of study.
