Information about the 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).

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 community.

The School has benefited from many improvements in recent years including the addition of new buildings. We are currently embarking upon an exciting £8million joint building project with the local authority that will deliver the modernisation and refurbishment of our existing infrastructure, the addition of a dedicated sixth form facility by September 2021 and enable expansion.

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.
