Try. Grow. Achieve.

Value of the term - "Resilience"

Welcome to Temple Grove Academy

Welcome to Temple Grove Academy, the first primary school of Temple Grove Academy Trust in Tunbridge Wells. We hope that you will enjoy visiting our website and that it provides you with an insight into our vibrant and happy nursery and primary school. TGA staff are caring, experienced and committed to meeting the individual needs of every child through a happy, secure environment.

Ethos and Values

Our ethos and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.  Our aim, in partnership with parents, is for our children to:


“Try. Grow. Achieve.”

We believe that our children can achieve personal and academic excellence through the teaching and modelling of 6 core values and skills:


  • Aspire
  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Creativity
  • Resilience
  • Thoughtfulness

We believe that these values will drive and shape all aspects of TGA life ("be the change you want to see in the world") and be the values that we wish to display and see in others.


We aim to provide a safe, happy, caring, well-ordered environment in which life-long learning can take place and where each child is valued as an individual.

We do this by:

  • Providing a fun, stimulating and challenging learning environment
  • Reflecting our high expectations through encouraging independent learning and self-discipline
  • Establishing a mutually supportive partnership in which parents, carers, governors, trustees and staff share responsibility for the education of our children
  • Promoting an awareness of and respect for a diversity of cultures, values, beliefs and abilities
  • Working together to create a caring community of learners where every child feels safe and valued
  • Ensuring that all children have appropriate and equal access to the curriculum
