The Howard School, Gillingham.  A unique school, being bilateral, formed out of a previous grammar school and a non selective boys school, producing two streams which are taught separately so it is not a comprehensive school. There is no separate grammar option on the admission form. Admission is not dependent on the Medway Test. Those who have passed the Medway test are automatically placed in the grammar stream and others who are assessed as being of grammar school ability are promoted alongside them.  Mixed sixth form.  Lead school of the Howard Academy Trust working with two Primary schools. OFSTED GoodOctober 2016. One of five Medway secondary schools with appeals organised by the same group
