We're new to the area too. Swimming lessons at Fosse Bank school (Google Alison Marks Swim School) are great.

Schools all very different but good points about all of them. I would advise making appointments to look around to see where would suit your children best. Heard lots of good things about Stocks Green Primary in Hildenborough and Slade Primary in central Tonbridge. Would imagine catchment for both of these is very small though!

Thank a place in Hildenborough primary :-)...on our experience, Stocks Green's receptionist is very unpolite...happy we don't have to go to there.

Thank you for the tip on swimming lessons, I contacted her but she said DS (3 yy in october) has to do the full term until december in the babies class (!)...I keep looking...

I am looking for dance, martial arts and music classes now...keep me busy for the summer
