Secondary Education

Children remain at our school until the end of Year 6, when they transfer to a secondary school.

In the 2017-2018 academic year, 57% of the year group took part in the Kent selection procedure (Kent Test) at the start of Year 6 to assess their suitability for grammar school. Of those, 65 per cent were deemed suitable for a grammar school education.

Due to our geographical location, children leave us to attend many different secondary schools. We have good links with all of the schools which helps to ensure a smooth transition for the children and their families.

In 2018 our Year 6s have been offered places at the following schools:

Aylesford School (Sports College)

Bennett Memorial Diocesan School

Hadlow Rural Community School

Hillview School for Girls

Hugh Christie Technology College

Invicta Grammar School

Maidstone Grammar School for Girls

Mascalls Academy

Oakwood Park Grammar School

Simon Langton Grammar School for Boys

St Augustine Academy

St Simon Stock Catholic School

In previous years our students have also been offered places at Cornwallis Academy, Maidstone Grammar School, New Line Learning Academy, Oakley School, Sutton Valence School, The Hayesbrook School, The Judd School, The Malling School, The Skinners’ School and Valley Park School.

We hold an information evening in Year 5 for parents of children wishing to find out more about the Kent selection procedure.
