Faversham is a market town and civil parish in the Swale district in Kent, England, United Kingdom. The town is 48 miles from London and 10 miles from Canterbury, and lies next to the Swale, a strip of sea separating mainland Kent from the Isle of Sheppey in the Thames Estuary.
Geographically, Faversham sits at a boundary between marshland to the north and a mixture of brick earth, gravel and chalk to the south which leads into the North Downs. Faversham Creek connects the town to the Swale that separates mainland Kent from the Isle of Sheppey.
Wilder Kent Awards
In 2021 we entered the Wilder Kent Awards and the judges were really impressed by all of the work we are doing at Ethelbert Road in contributing to creating a Wilder Kent.
The Wilder Kent Awards is a scheme to reward and acknowledge the work of schools and community groups that are helping us to create a Wilder Kent by taking positive action to restore nature and helping adults and children to reconnect with nature. Their action benefits us locally and helps tackle the global environmental threats we all face.
Following a review of our application the judges decided to award our school a commendation!
