Gravesend Grammar School
Gravesend Grammar School is an 11-18 selective boys grammar school with girls admitted to the Sixth Form. The most recent Ofsted Inspection (June 2015) judged the School as ‘Outstanding’.
We became an Academy on 1st August 2011 as part of The Decus Educational Trust (TDET).
The school has recently gone through a period of expansion. We have recently moved into our £8 million new 6th form building which, in addition to our other building projects, will provide improved facilities across the school. We will continue to rise year on year until we admit 1500 students (7 forms of entry). This is a really exciting time in the history of the school and has the potential to provide succession opportunities for colleagues that want to progress in their careers.
We have a committed staff who provide opportunity and challenge in a caring environment and strive to ensure the students achieve the very best they can at all times. We also have strong working partnerships with parents, governors and the local community.
We are served by excellent transport links; by road the A2 and M25, and by rail Gravesend train station (on the HS1 line) is a short walk from the School and Ebbsfleet International train station is only a 10 minute drive. We also have the opportunity for on-site staff accommodation.
