What are the real chances of getting into a Medway  Grammar School?

Medway has a much better provision of Grammar School places than many areas in the country so children will have a much improved chance of getting a place. However competition remains quite fierce.

The danger for parents of children  who are bright is to assume that a small amount of familiarisation might be enough. Sadly with lots of children doing lots of preparation work you can find a situation where children who are not as naturally bright leapfrog the genuinely bright. We’d urge all families not to be complacent of getting a place even though provision is good.
