At Chiddingstone School we take great pride in the strength of our community links, whether with the local church, elderly residents in the village, nursery and local businesses. We also work very hard with a number of charities to engender a real sense of social responsibility in our pupils so that they recognise and appreciate their relatively privileged position in comparison to many others,both in the UK and the wider world.
Chiddingstone is often described as " the most perfect surviving example of a Tudor village in the county" and is one of the prettiest villages in Kent. The National Trust bought the entire village, including the church, houses and post office, in 1939 to ensure its preservation. The houses in the village are generally of the 16th and 17th-century.
