If you're looking for an Independent Primary School in the Gravesend area, St Joseph's Convent Preparatory School could be the perfect choice for you and your children.


Based in Gravesend, the school is a short drive from Gravesend and Ebbsfleet Train stations.  It is conveniently located close to major road links making travel to and from North Kent and London easy, and we offer wraparound care from 7.30am to 6.00pm.


We pride ourselves on our traditional values and small class sizes.   Academic excellence is an important part of our ethos.  We have a strong history of pupils passing their 11+ exams and receiving their first choice in secondary schools.  We balance this with a varied range of extra-curricular activities to offer a welcoming, engaging and inspiring environment to help young, inquisitive minds build the foundation they need for their learning journey.


All pupils, from pre-prep to year six benefit from swimming lessons in our onsite swimming pool and language lessons with a specialist teacher. The school also offers LAMDA Speech and Drama classes as an extra-curricular subject.


For more information, please email 


Please note: At this current time, we will not be able to offer Parent Tours due to the coronavirus Covid-19 virus however we would still be happy to talk through information about the school and how to register.
