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.

At Petham we try to ensure that the children have an exciting and interesting curriculum, with many activities taking place to stimulate learning.

On this page we will put links to any articles or information about the school which occur in the media so that you can share in the myriad of opportunities we are affording our children.

We hope you enjoy the articles as much as we enjoyed the activities!
