The Aletheia Anglican Academies Trust, working with Kent County Council are proposing to change the age range of the new school at Alkerden, Ebbsfleet, to create an all-through school for pupils aged 2 to 19, which will eventually add 60 places in each primary year group with an eventual total roll of 420 primary school pupils.  In addition, the change will create 26 Nursery school places and provide 15 primary places in a Specialist Resourced Provision for children whose barrier to learning is ASD.  The already agreed numbers and structure of the secondary school intakes are unaffected by this proposal.

In 2018, Kent County Council (KCC) held a competition to identify a promoter to establish a new school in the part of Ebbsfleet Valley known as Alkerden.  The Aletheia Anglican Academies Trust were the successful bidder.

The site for the new school will provide sufficient land and buildings to accommodate an 8FE secondary school with a 25 place secondary specialist resource-based provision, a 2FE primary provision with a 15 place primary specialist resource-based provision for pupils whose primary barrier to learning is ASD and a twenty-six place Nursery provision.  Within the competition documentation, KCC stipulated that any provider must indicate whether they would be willing to establish an all-through provision.

KCC have informed Aletheia Anglican Academies Trust that their preference is to open the 2FE primary provision and nursery, as a component of an all-through school.  As the secondary provider, Aletheia Anglican Academies Trust is consulting on whether the new secondary school should accommodate the primary and nursery establishment that is planned for the site.
