Welcome toHilden OaksPreparatory School & Nursery

Saturday Academy

Saturday Academy was introduced to broaden and enrich the opportunities available to pupils, allowing them to learn new skills and participate in fun and creative activities out of school hours in a relaxed environment. Over recent years, Saturday Academy has grown, and we now we are delighted to welcome families from the wider Tonbridge community whose children do ot attend the school.

A wide range of lessons run on Saturday mornings including Judo and music lessons (covering acoustic and electric guitar, ukulele, piano, violin and viola) which run every week during term time, and themed dance workshops which run four times each term on an ad hoc basis. 

The classes that we offer are run by qualified and experienced professionals and cater for children and adults of all ages. If you would like to know more about our Saturday Academy please contact the School Office.


Weekly 30 minute & 1 hour lessons
Judo is a great sport for children of all ages. From the very first lesson children learn about discipline, good sportsmanship and respect for others. These are mixed ability classes that are assessed and graded at the end of each term

Early Years Judo for 3, 4 and 5 year olds
9.00 - 9.30am. Fees are payable termly (depending on the number of weeks).

Judo for Key Stages 1 and 2 (ages 6-11)
9.30 - 10.30am  . Fees are payable termly (depending on the number of weeks).



Music lessons last 20 or 30 minutes and can be taught individually or as part of a group of up to three people.

Enriching children's lives with music strengthens their educational, physical, and emotional development. Music tuition is available in violin, viola, piano, ukulele and electric and acoustic guitar. Gradings may be taken at Tunbridge Wells Music Centre.
