Individual School Information - G

(updated April 2017)

An explanation of how Progress 8 and Attainment 8 are calculated, and further information on the performance of all Kent schools can be found here.

The PAN is the Published Admission Number and refers to the number of places available in the year group for each school.

For grammar schools, the number of first preferences is for children who are grammar qualified.

2017 oversubscription data for grammar schools here, and for non-selective schools here.

Gravesend Grammar School.  PAN up to 174 from 150 in 2014. For 2015 entry, 154 offers made, with 130 first choices, including 20 out of county mainly from London. The school filled after appeals. For 2014 appeals, 16 out of 53 were upheld. OFSTED June 2015 - Outstanding, up from Good in 2012. For 2016, having offered 43 of its 174 places to out of county applicants, there were no places offered on appeal. 28 of the 63 non-selective were found to be selective and placed on a waiting list. However, after the appeals had been heard, 13 boys were subsequently offered places with the year group increasing in size to 180.

2017 saw just 118 first preferences, although the school filled with lower order choices, including out of county boys, offering places to 43. 14 of these live in Thurrock, presumably planning to cross the Thames on the passenger ferry. The school is clearly unhappy with the out of county situation and is reducing its intake to 150 for 2018 entry. For September 2017, all but one grammar qualified boys placing the school in first place were offered places.
