The Skinners’ School

The Skinners' School was opened in Tunbridge Wells in 1887. The current roll is 1124, with 319 in the Sixth Form.

Skinners' aims to achieve academic excellence for all its pupils, whilst at the same time developing their independence as learners. We also believe very strongly in learning outside the classroom, through co-curricular and extra-curricular activity. We are thus preparing our pupils for life beyond school and want them to play a significant role in their communities and in society as a whole.

We cherish our own community and value the excellent relationship between pupils themselves and between pupils, staff and parents. We are committed to being a sustainable school and to our collaboration with other schools in our vicinity.
