Secondary Education

Children remain at our school until the end of Year 6, when they transfer to a secondary school.

In the 2016-2017 academic year, 63% of the year group took part in the Kent selection procedure (Kent Test) at the start of Year 6 to assess their suitability for grammar school. Of those, 60 per cent were deemed suitable for a grammar school education.

Due to our geographical location, children leave us to attend many different secondary schools. We have good links with all of the schools which helps to ensure a smooth transition for the children and their families.

In 2017 our Year 6s have been offered places at the following schools:

Hillview School for Girls

New Line Learning Academy

Hugh Christie Technology College

Oakwood Park Grammar School

Invicta Grammar School

St Augustine Academy

Maidstone Grammar School

The Hayesbrook School

Maidstone Grammar School for Girls

The Judd School

Mascalls Academy

The Malling School

In previous years our students have also been offered places at Bennett Memorial Diocesan School Cornwallis Academy, Oakley School, St Simon Stock Catholic School, Sutton Valence School, The Skinners’ School and Valley Park School.
