Ightham Primary School has very close links with St Peter's Church. Volunteers from St Peter's Church come into school approximately once every three weeks to lead an assembly called Open The Book. In these assemblies, the children learn about a Bible story. Older children in the school are also often invited to act as part of these assemblies. Rev. Tim Hatwell also comes into school to lead an assembly once every two weeks.
Our Key Stage 2 Harvest, Christmas and Easter services are held every year in St Peter's Church.
We also have a link with Bromley Synagogue who visit Ightham every year.

Music plays an important part in nurturing and developing confidence, love of performing, teamwork and achievement.
All pupils benefit from regular singing practice at least once a week, exploring a variety of styles, from sacred music, through gospel, pop and musical theatre. Their voices are regularly heard at Harvest, Christmas and Easter services both in church, school and at special school drama productions for both KS1 and 2.
The Choir give many public performances to the local community with fundraising concerts supporting local charities and across Kent, including Demelza House Hospice for Children, where the choir performed to the children, their families and staff. They have become a regular fixture for concerts at Ightham Mote and all choir members take part at the biggest children’s choir event in the world at London's 02 arena for "Young Voices". The choir give concerts at school and take part in the school's annual Spring Concert.
