I am delighted to introduce you to Groombridge St Thomas Church of England Primary School.  We are a small, friendly primary school situated in the heart of the village of Groombridge on the East Sussex/Kent border.

Our purpose and overall aims are to aspire for excellence in every area of the life of our school, to enable children to flourish and fulfill their potential, leaving us as well-rounded and confident individuals.
