Information about the school

Mayfield Grammar School, Gravesend is a selective girls’ school with boys in the sixth form which is situated in the town of Gravesend. The school has Specialist Science and Languages College status. In February 2012 MGSG converted to Academy Status. There are circa 1318 students on roll, 323 of whom are in the Sixth Form.

The school was founded in 1914 as the County School for Girls, taking as its motto “Per aspera ad astra” (Through adversity to the stars), and moved to its present site in 1926. The original building with its bell tower, central quadrangle and walled playing fields remains today much as it was then, however the school has enjoyed many modernisations.

The school benefits from a loyal, stable, well qualified and experienced staff who work together as a team. Staff-student relationships flourish in a relaxed and caring environment, where students are encouraged to achieve their full potential. The calm friendly atmosphere, combined with acceptance of the need for hard work, provides a high success rate in public examinations. This gives the school its good reputation and continues the tradition of excellence which began in 1914.
