The very first new school in Ebbsfleet Garden City has opened its doors to its first pupils.

Cherry Orchard Primary in Castle Hill will eventually have 420 pupils but  the first intake has now already started.

The school, run by Leigh Academies Trust, was given planning permission in March 2016. For further details, including admissions, click here.

There is also a nursery at the school, Cherry Pips.
