School Description

Maidstone Grammar School is a larger than average-sized selective boys’ school which admits girls into the sixth form. It has a modern languages specialism. Most students are from White British backgrounds. Although increasing, few speak English as an additional language. The proportion of students for whom the school receives the pupil premium (additional government funding for students known to be eligible for free school meals, looked after children and children of service families) is low when compared with schools nationally. There are no looked after children in the school. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported through school action is below that found in most schools, and the proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is low. The main learning need is for dyslexia. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress. The school does not use any alternative provision. There have been significant changes in leadership, with two changes of headship since the last inspection. The current headteacher took up his post at the beginning of the last academic year.

Catchment information

03000 41 21 21

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the last School Census (released annually in July).

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the last School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
