In Key Stage 3 (Years 7 and 8) students follow the National Curriculum and RE. Towards the end of year 8, students choose the subjects they will study at Key Stage 4 (GCSE equivalent). Starting Key Stage 4 courses in year 9 means that most students have three years to ensure they achieve challenging targets, as well as time for enrichment and enjoyment. In 2011 and 2012 we were the highest performing non-selective school in the area topping the league table for Gravesham in the Government’s 5A*-C (including English and Maths) percentages. This outstanding performance allowed us the status of Academy (November 2011) under the National Criteria for Good Schools.
We teach in traditional classroom spaces and in traditionally sized groups. As a Church School, we expect that all parents will accept our ethos. If, however any parent wishes to exercise their statutory right to withdraw from RE and worship they should contact the Headteacher.
