Welcome to The Skinners' School
Welcome to The Skinners' School. The school was opened in Royal Tunbridge Wells in 1887. The current roll is 978, with 252 in the Sixth Form.
Skinners' aims to achieve academic excellence for all its pupils, whilst at the same time developing their independence as learners. We also believe very strongly in learning outside the classroom, through co-curricular and extra-curricular activity. We are thus preparing our pupils for life beyond school and want them to play significant role in their communities and in society as a whole.
We cherish our own community and value the excellent relationship between pupils themselves and between pupils, staff and parents. We are committed to being a sustainable school and to our collaboration with other schools in our vicinity.
Skinners’ School is a place of learning. The boys will earn not only qualifications, but a respect for scholarship and learning as things worthwhile in themselves. We intend that they will also develop an appreciation of human achievement in art, music, science and literature. They will develop the ability to think critically, to respect evidence, to distinguish between opinions and prejudices and to make balanced judgements of their own. Through involvement in our varied extra-curricular programme every boy should develop and grow intellectually, physically and spiritually.
