Pupils have been reaching for the stars thanks to a new climbing wall at Gad's Hill School.
Six-year-old Scarlett Curtis was the first to reach the top of the 9.1m structure at the site in Gravesend Road, Higham.
The kindergarten pupil of Jarrett Avenue, Wainscott, joined classmates and seniors to celebrate its launch.
It is the result of two years' fundraising by the school's parent committee, Friends of Gad's.
Headmaster Paul Savage said: "Friends of Gad's work tirelessly year-round to ensure our children benefit from resources which enrich the school curriculum and facilities.
"They not only raise money for adventure equipment but strengthen the Gad’s community by bringing children, parents and friends of the school together."
The wall will be used by pupils at the school during PE and combined cadet force lessons.
Future plans include inviting other schools and members of the public to try their hand at rock climbing.
