Welcome to Temple Hill Primary Academy 


I am incredibly proud to be the CEO of The Galaxy Trust.   I am confident that every child will thrive – I absolutely insist that every child and every family at Temple Hill is treated with respect and that every child is treated as an individual.


Temple Hill is a friendly, vibrant and exciting place for children to learn.  We offer a wide range of activities and cater for the needs of all children. Temple Hill Primary Academy is located in Dartford, Kent.  


We currently work in partnership with Oakfield Primary Academy and West Hill Primary Academy - these three schools form The Galaxy Trust and we are working tirelessly to ensure that every child across each school has equality of opportunity and equality of provision.


We hope you enjoy exploring our website, but nothing will be as good as paying us a visit!  If you are new to the area, please call to make an appointment to view the school.  If you are an existing parent, you know you are regularly invited in to school.  Once again, thank you for visiting and we hope you enjoy your visit.


Garry Ratcliffe

 Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Chief Accounting Officer (CAO)


I am extremely proud to work for The Galaxy Trust as the Executive Head of Oakfield Primary Academy, Temple Hill Primary Academy and West Hill Primary Academy. I have served the Education sector for many years across Kent and London and have a great passion in making a real difference to the lives of all children. I strongly believe that all children and young people deserve the best Education and I am committed to high expectations and consistency for teaching and learning across our schools. I also believe it is important to develop children's confidence, self-esteem and resilience which will equip them with the necessary tools to overcome challenges and be ready for the next phase of their learning.


As well as being a parent to three wonderful children, I love being outdoors, spending time with my large family, travelling, coaching and being an advocate for young people.
