Join The Judd School Development Fund


Alumni and parents are some of the school’s most important supporters


Together we are united in the aim of supporting the continued success of Judd School.

In recent years there have been many academic advances and a growth in the number of students attending the school, as a result there is much pressure on already over-burdened facilities in some areas. There have been significant and enduring capital investments in the school financed by a partnership between Kent County Council, the Department for Education and The Judd School Development Fund.

Since 2006, when the Development Office was established, a 'culture of giving' has been encouraged and the school (through The Development Fund) has received nearly £3 million from the generosity of parents, Old Juddians and friends of the school. This money has gone towards supporting capital projects across the scope of the school and helped to develop fantastic facilities beyond what would be possible with Government funding alone. In order to sustain The Judd School's success, it is therefore necessary to continue to the next phase in the development programme to ensure the very best facilities are available to allow Judd students to continue to thrive now and in the future. We are now looking ahead and planning three major projects.

Below you will see a summary of our Sixth Form Building and Classroom plans, as well as developing outdoor spaces and future Athletics Development aspirations. Our new Development Fund brochure is now live and we encourage you to take a look and find out more.

Sixth Form Centre and Classrooms

What are the plans? To build two new single storey buildings by September 2022 which will alleviate the issues of space in the main school buildings and provide improved facilities for all Sixth Form students and staff. The Sixth Form Centre will be divided into spaces for lone working, meetings and group work; as well as office space and toilet facilities. With all support staff and services located in the Centre this will create a 'Sixth Form hub'.

Located in two different locations within the school grounds, the unique build style and design concept will link both buildings together.

Developing Social Spaces

Developing under used outdoor space around the school will provide more welcoming green spaces to form seating areas, a potential outdoor classroom as well as recreational spaces for students who wish to study or take a break in a calmer, quieter environment. We would also like to incorporate a structural pagoda to be used as an exhibition and gathering space on the lawn outside of the main school building.

Athletics Development

Our vision is to create a collection of all-weather running and jump areas at Vizards, on the yet undeveloped top pitch. Creating space for a 300m track with 100m sprint section; as well as pits and beds in the centre for long, triple and high jump and even pole vault. We have seen outstanding achievements of our athletes locally, nationally and internationally.

These successes come despite the running facilities being challenging especially with a surface that varies with the weather. With the improved facilities we can do even better and form stronger partnerships with local competitive athletics clubs to further develop our student's abilities.
