Victory Academy, Chatham.  Now in purpose built premises. Its history through to Easter 2015 was very troubled but following the failure of original sponsor The Diocese of Rochester, it was taken over by the Thinking Schools Academy Trust which runs six other Medway schools. Unpopular with parents under previous control it has struggled to build up numbers in spite of  Good Ofsted in September 21017, up from Requires Improvement, and respectable GCSEs, including by some way the best non-selective Progress 8 in Medway in 2017. Has close link with Holcombe Grammar, which has led to several failed controversial initiatives, most recently here.
