Welcome to Bishops Down Primary & Nursery School

(Scroll down for dates of tours for prospective parents looking for Reception, 2023)


Term 1


The Amelia Scott


We are very lucky that all our children, YR to Y6, will be visiting The Amelia Scott several times during this academic year.  This new project in Tunbridge Wells has a wealth of culture and interest and will enhance our curriculum.  Bishops Down children are very lucky to have such a resource on their doorstep.




Roald Dahl Day


On Tuesday, 13th September children dressed up to celebrate Roald Dahl day.  Roald Dahl was one of the best children's authors of all time and it was fun to commemorate him today and celebrate .   The children had fun celebrating the magic that he brought and continues to bring to children everywhere.
