Rainham Mark Grammar School is a highly successful ‘Outstanding’ co-educational selective school with a large Sixth Form.
We provide a co-educational grammar education of the highest quality. Girls and boys work together in a co-operative and academic environment which is both challenging and friendly. We have established a strong tradition of academic excellence by encouraging hard work and mutual support.
Our excellent facilities include a modern sports hall, comprising a dance studio, fitness suite and main hall with three full-length cricket nets; specialist teaching suites for all subject areas; a purpose-built music block with a recital hall, recording studio and Sixth Form study suite.
Pastoral support from the outset is very strong and children are happy, confident and secure. Individual progress and potential are assessed frequently to ensure that the level of challenge is appropriate for each child. Relationships between staff and students are excellent with discipline firmly based on a tradition of mutual care and respect. We are proud that students leave us as confident and well-qualified men and women prepared to benefit from higher education.
Beyond the national curriculum subjects, pupils enjoy a good deal of choice. At the moment, all study two modern languages through to the end of Year 9. All pupils have the opportunity to study the three separate sciences (Physics, Chemistry and Biology), and all students take both English Language and Literature.
Drama, Economics, Business Studies and PE are popular amongst wide GCSE option choices; Information Technology is used in most subjects. Extensive extra-curricular activities include many sports, Duke of Edinburgh, orchestra, band, choir, Maths puzzle club, dance and drama, and use of the computer rooms.
Around 80 school trips take place, some of which are strongly linked to the curriculum, and some (during school holidays) are more for enjoyment. Sixth Form A Level options are exceptionally wide (currently 26 different subjects are offered) and include Government & Politics, PE, Film Studies, Philosophy and Theology, Psychology and Economics besides the more traditional subjects. Almost all Sixth Formers go on to degree courses.
Admission to the school in Year 7 is via the Medway test which is taken in September. All children taking part in the selection procedure take the same test, whichever Medway school they have chosen as their preference.
