    I was at Oak Bank from 1968-1971 and enjoyed it. I was interested to know what ever happened to the school as I can't find photos or nothing on Google etc. sad its all gone as another school in Maidstone I went to was turned into flats 20 yrs ago.

    Hi Kevin
    I think the School was knocked down around 1995 and they built about 4 houses apparently they got thier money back just from the sale of the caretakers house. It was a shame that it's gone it was home for 5 years .
    If you send me your email address I'll find a picture for you clifordtonbridge@gmail.com
