Our increasing success at Key Stage 4 (Progress 8 in two of the last three years significantly high) has resulted in our Sixth Form expanding. Students are able to choose to study over 25 subjects, combining academic and vocational qualifications, this is further extended by our collaboration with the grammar school in our Trust.

Success in Level 3 courses has risen dramatically to 100% pass rate and average grade has risen from a U(!) to a C grade within the last 5 years, though we are now ambitious to crack into the B average! We have our first students applying to Cambridge this year with a very good prospect of being accepted.

The school draws its students from across the whole of the Medway area. The majority live in rented accommodation and the proportion from advantaged backgrounds is much lower than average. This is a school where you really do feel that you make a difference every day!
