Sixth Form Courses in Kent and Medway Schools


North West Kent Schools

Dartford Grammar is another school with a mushroom Sixth Form the only one of the four grammars in Kent and Medway offering the IB that is a net importer of students, admitting 181 from other schools, including at least 66 from girls’ grammar schools. Its two biggest contributory schools are Dartford Girls Grammar, 22 and The Rochester Grammar 15, of which more below. As described above it sets a high academic bar, so few children from N/S schools are admitted, although there are ten from Greenwich comprehensives. The only N/S schools to provide five or more students are the local Leigh Academy (5) and two Bexley Catholic schools.

Dartford Girls fully replaces its losses the boys’ grammar school Sixth Form, attracting 73 external students from a variety of schools, but few from Rochester Grammar. None of the other four NW Kent grammar schools recruits highly from elsewhere, the biggest movement being the 14 from Mayfield to Gravesend Grammar.

However, four of the top ten N/S external recruiters come from NW Kent, headed by Northfleet Girls, attracting 17 boys to its Sixth Form of 123 students. Whilst St John’s Catholic does not feature in the table above this is because of its high retention figure of 60% of  Year 11 staying on, and it still recruited 52 students externally, over half from Thamesview which has no Sixth Form.
