Early indications show this is a record year with even greater progress than last year when we were the highest non-selective school in Kent, comparable to many of the county’s leading grammar schools. We believe our academic
focus twinned with a wide variety of extra-curricular activities allow our students to excel and achieve their personal goals while fostering good values and life skills.”
