Information about the school  – Wilmington Grammar School for Girls

The school is smaller than the average-sized secondary school and has specialist status in mathematics and computing. The great majority of its students come from the Dartford area and the London Boroughs of Bromley and Bexley. The percentage of students known to be eligible for free school meals is very low. The school converted to academy status in August 2011 and collaborates with the local boys’ grammar school to offer sixth form provision. The proportion of students from minority ethnic backgrounds is increasing and is above the national average at approximately 24%. English is an additional language for nearly half of these students. The proportion of students supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is well below average. The school is above the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for attainment and progress.
