Mascalls School is a co-educational secondary school and sixth form with academy status, located in Paddock Wood in the English county of Kent.[1] The school accepts pupils from Brenchley, Matfield, Capel, Collier Street, Five Oak Green, East Peckham, Horsmonden, Lamberhurst and Yalding, as well as Paddock Wood itself.

The school opened in 1956 and was converted to academy status in July 2011. Before becoming an academy it was a foundation school administered by Kent County Council; however, Mascalls School continues to co-ooperate with Kent County Council for admissions.

Mascalls School offers GCSEs, BTECs and OCR Nationals as programmes of study for pupils. Students in the sixth form have the option to study from a range of A Levels and further BTECs.[1]

Mascalls Gallery[edit]

Mascalls Gallery is a public art gallery which opened in 2006 on the site of Mascalls School. It was originally curated by Nathaniel Hepburn; in 2014 he was replaced by Rebecca Hone. It has a frequently changing programme of exhibitions featuring national and internationally known artists.[2] These have included Henry Moore, L. S. Lowry, Graham Sutherland and Lee Miller as well as artists from Latin America, Japan and America. In 2010, Mascalls Gallery exhibited for the first time in the UK drawings by Marc Chagall for nearby Tudeley Church.
