Stella Maris Catholic Primary, Folkestone









Stella Maris Catholic Primary School is rated as a 'Good' academy (Ofsted October 2017).


The academy is a one-form entry Catholic primary located in central Folkestone, and serving the parishes of Our Lady Help of Christians, Folkestone and St Joseph's, Cheriton.


Stella Maris is very much a family academy and provides a caring atmosphere, an exciting curriculum, and great opportunities for all children. Many, but not all, of the children are Catholics - those who do not share the faith still choose the academy because of its family values and the work undertaken to teach the children about loving God and their fellow man.


Parents send their children to Stella Maris because they want them to share in the experience of a faith community. The Religious Education programme (based on the scheme Come and See) provides them with both the knowledge needed to become an active member of that community and the experiences that will help their faith take root more firmly in their lives.


The academy's mission is what God sent us into the world to do - to help build His Kingdom through learning, playing and making friends together. 


The tools we will use to do this are:

Caring, Sharing, Love, Trust and Respect.
