We welcome you and your child to Ramsgate Arts Primary School. We are part of the Viking Academy Trust, which also comprises of Chilton Primary School and Upton Junior School. RAPS is a new two-form entry primary school. We are passionate about our children’s success and provide a high quality, rounded education, through which every child can know the joy of learning and be supported to reach his or her potential.
We are located in a bright, modern, spacious building which encompasses state of the art technology and designated spaces, such as our dance studio, music room and art studio, which facilitate our Arts Curriculum.
Mr Nicholas Budge
We endeavour to nurture, encourage and build on creativity - through our Arts Curriculum, our children will be taught the skills of creative subjects. Our specialist teaching team will guide children in learning the value of discipline, commitment and work ethic as well as creative thinking skills. The result will be children who not only have a secure educational foundation, but also have the ability to think outside the box and channel their creativity enabling them to succeed in a rapidly changing world.
‘Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something...they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things. And the reason they were able to do that was that they’ve had more experiences or that they have thought more about their experiences than other people. Unfortunately, that’s too rare a commodity.’ Steve Jobs
We hope that this is the beginning of a long and happy association with our school and we look forward to getting to know you and your child during the time we will share together at Ramsgate Arts Primary School.
