The Rovenden Rocket

From September 2019, the Rolvenden Rocket will be operating a school bus service from Rolvenden to Cranbrook School stopping at Benenden en route. There is currently no private bus service from Rolvenden to Cranbrook School or a public bus operating at suitable times. The Rolvenden Rocket aims to be the solution to transport worries for parents who have children attending Cranbrook School. There are 15 available seats. The allocation will be on a first come first serve basis and the price will be competitive with the Young Persons bus pass offered by KCC. Please contact Lee to book your seat or ask a question regarding the service.

Monday to Friday, pick-up outside The Bull at 7:50am, Benenden Village Hall at 7:55am and drop-off to Cranbrook School for 8:10am.


Please take a look at the document in the downloads section from the Department of Education that offers parents advice when dealing with social media, and the issues facing today’s young people around cyberbullying.

Positive Mental Health and resilience

As part of our continued focus on mental health, students have had a series of assemblies on promoting resilience and positive mental health. Included in the downloads is one of these assemblies and a guide for parents, both of which we hope will provide you with advice on how to support your child’s mental health and give an insight into some of the work we are doing in school.
