About Maidstone Grammar School for Girls
At Maidstone Grammar School for Girls we place a very high value on creating a caring community in which everyone feels confident and valued. This is a priority for us as we know that students flourish and succeed when they feel happy and secure. Relationships between staff and students are based on trust and mutual respect, and students show respect for each other and for the process of learning.
Academic excellence is very important to us too. We want everyone to feel engaged and excited by learning and to experience the pleasure of achieving personal goals. Our students are keen to learn and we are able to respond positively to differing needs and strengths with the right balance of support and challenge. Our specialist science status, Thinking Schools and Investors in Careers awards indicate the breadth of expertise across the curriculum.
We also value the development of creativity, responsibility, physical and personal skills. Students are encouraged to participate in the full MGGS experience, with its strong emphasis on community and charity work, dramatic, musical and sports events. When they leave the school, students are mature and well-qualified young people with the confidence to benefit from the opportunities ahead of them and to make a positive contribution to the wider world.
We are proud of the school’s long and distinguished history in Maidstone, and are committed to preparing our students for the technologies, work patterns and necessary skills required to meet the demands of the twenty-first century. Every student who attends the school has talents: our job is to find these, and foster them and develop in everyone a love of learning for its own sake and a pride in striving for and achieving excellence.
As an employer we offer the opportunity to work with high ability students in a supportive, friendly and forward-thinking environment and support for professional development is strong. Maidstone Grammar School for Girls is a very successful selective girls’ school of 1,229 students with a mixed sixth form of 381.
