The Village Academy

The Village Academy is a group of town, city and village schools that have joined together to provide the very best education for the children in our care and where we believe that education is very much a matter of the individual.

Headteacher's Welcome

Our school is in Selling, a small village situated between the historic market town of Faversham and Sheldwich in Kent. We are lucky to be surrounded by orchards and beautiful views of The Downs and we are very proud of our school.

Our staff and pupils share a strong belief in the values and ethos of the school and we are all proud to be part of it. Selling C of E Primary School is part of The Village Academy which means we are able to share expertise with our other schools in the Academy including best practice and resources, allowing us to raise achievement and standards throughout the school.
