School Description

The school is currently registered for 50 pupils. Most join the school after a disrupted education. Pupils have either been excluded or were at risk of exclusion from other mainstream schools or pupil referral units. Many pupils have an education, health and care plan related to social, emotional or mental health difficulties. All pupils are placed and funded by Medway or Kent local authorities. A small number of pupils are taught on a part-time basis by an outreach tutor rather than in the school. Inspection report: The GFC School, 30 April–2 May 2019 Page 8 of 11 The school does not use any alternative providers. The school was previously inspected in January 2018, when its overall effectiveness was judged to require improvement. The proprietor employed a new senior leadership team at the start of the academic year. This comprises a full-time head of centre, working alongside a head of education and an executive director of education, who both work part time and have other responsibilities within the football club. These are related to the academy and apprenticeship programmes, which were not part of this inspection.

The GFC School Catchment Area Map

This school is independently managed and its admission criteria may be selective. There is no set catchment area as pupils are admitted from a wide variety of postcodes and, in the case of boarding schools, from outside the UK. Contact the school directly or visit their website for more information on Admissions Policy and Procedures.
