About The Folkestone School for Girls

This average-sized, selective secondary school converted to academy status in February 2012. When its predecessor school, also known as the Folkestone School for Girls was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be good overall. Most students are of White British heritage but there is a growing number from minority ethnic groups. The school liaises with a local boys’ grammar school to extend the range of sixth form courses available to students in both schools. The school has a partnership with Marsh Academy that was brokered by the local authority. The school has specialisms in mathematics and computing and is a training school.
