Stella Maris is a one form entry Catholic Primary School located in central Folkestone, and serving the parish of Our Lady and St Joseph, Folkestone.  We are one of 19 primaries and 5 secondaries that form Kent Catholic Schools' Partnership (KCSP).


We are very much a family school and provide a caring atmosphere, an exciting curriculum, and great opportunities for all our children. Most, but not all, of our children are Catholics – those who do not share that faith still choose the school because of our family values and the work we do to teach the children about loving God and their fellow man.


We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find the information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.
