Medway Secondary Schools & Academies D-F

updated April 2019

You will find an initial article on 2019 allocations here, an article on 2019 oversubscription data for Medway grammar schools here, and for non-selective schools hereFor Grammar School Preferences, only grammar qualified are counted. The PAN is the Published Admission Number and refers to the number of places available in the year group for each school. If additional places were offered, I have recorded this under PAN.  

A Report on 2019 Appeals Outcomes hereFor Attainment 8 and Progress 8 and further information on the performance of all Medway schools with 2019 GCSE scores go to here for explanation. 2019 GCSE performance data is currently provisional before final data is published in January. 

 

Fort Pitt Grammar School. Situated in the site and some buildings of the old Fort Pitt. Has capacity for and had intake of 180, but reduced to 120 quite a few years ago. School and Appeal Panels not interested in expansion.  Part of the Fort Pitt Thomas Aveling (FPTA) Academies Trust. Has not had an Ofsted inspection sinceOutstanding March 2009, having converted to academisation in February 2012 Has unusual oversubscription criteria, broadly giving preference to girls living within two miles of the school, then on the Hoo Peninsula. The latter is because these girls would otherwise find it very difficult to access a Medway grammar if they were not super-selective. 

Admission number rose by 30 places for 2019.
