Description of the school – Mayfield Grammar School

Gravesend Grammar School for Girls, which is spread over two sites about five minutes’ walk apart, is oversubscribed. In September 2007, a small number of boys joined the sixth form. While most students are of White British heritage, there is a slightly larger than average representation of students from minority ethnic groups, mainly Indian, with about 10% who do not have English as their first language. The school collaborates with Gravesend Grammar School for Boys to provide teaching in minority subjects in the sixth form. It has participated in the Gravesham Post 16 Consortium with seven other schools since 2003. In 2004, it was awarded specialist science status. The current headteacher has been in post since September 2007.
