Medway Secondary Schools & Academies A-C

(updated January 2017)

An explanation of how Progress 8 and Attainment 8 are calculated, and further information on the performance of all Medway 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.

Bishop of Rochester Academy in Medway. Now under new sponsors and renamed as Victory Academy.

Brompton Academy in Medway specialising in Science and the Arts, re-opened in September 2010 in new premises. Sponsored by the University of Kent and Medway Council. The Academy was based on New Brompton College, an oversubscribed school being turned into an Academy.  For 2014 entry the most oversubscribed school in Kent & Medway by far, with 173 first choices turned away, and again in 2015, with 159 disappointed first choices. 108 in 2016. Very difficult to win an appeal. Good OFSTED October 2012. One of five Medway secondary schools with appeals organised by the same group.

Chatham Grammar School for Boys.  Changed its name to Holcombe Grammar School on 1st January, 2017.

Chatham Grammar School for Girls, Chatham.  Academy. Good OFSTED November 2012. 58 vacancies for September 2013, with 30 successful appeals out of 45. Plenty of spaces again for 2014 entry. Although the PAN is 142, the school decided after it was initially left with 76 vacancies, to reorganise to 3 classes of entry for 2015. This meant that a number of girls who would have gained admission on appeal in previous years, were turned down. 88% A*-Cs (2015) below normal expectations for a grammar school,  but respectable under Progress 8 for grammar schools in 2016.  The school is under threat from the proposal of Holcombe Grammar School (formerly Chatham Boys' Grammar) to become co-educational. School is barely viable in the Sixth Form with only 50% of its Year 11s continuing into the Sixth Form for September 2016, providing a total of just 51 students. Year 12, with a higher roll of 85 in 2015-16, lost 15% or 13 students this September, the highest percentage grammar school fall in Medway. One of five Medway secondary schools with appeals organised by the same group.
