Information about this school – Chatham Grammar School for Boys

 Chatham Grammar School for Boys became an academy in April 2011. Its specialist subjects are science and mathematics.

 It is an average-sized secondary school with a large, mixed sixth form. About half of the sixth form is made up of students who join at the end of Year 11 from other schools in the area. Girls make up a third of the sixth form.

 The proportion of students for whom the school receives the pupil premium is much lower than the national average. This is additional government funding for students in the care of the local authority, those with a parent or carer in the armed forces, and those known to be eligible for free school meals.

 Almost all students are of White British heritage. The proportion of students from minority ethnic groups is in line with the national average with the largest proportions being from Black African and Indian heritage. The proportion of students who speak English as an additional language is lower than average.

 The proportions of students supported at school action, school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs are well below average. The main identified needs are autistic spectrum disorder and specific learning difficulties, particularly dyslexia.

 The academy does not provide education or training for students away from school.

 The academy meets the government’s current floor standard, which sets the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress.

 There have been no significant changes in leadership since the previous inspection.
