Welcome to Maidstone Grammar School


MGS WELCOMES APPLICATIONS FROM BOTH BOYS AND GIRLS

Read the 6th Form Prospectus and its Curriculum section which are available on our website. All applications will be by electronic form through UCAS Progress. This process opens on 8th November 2018 and closes on 31st January 2019. Late applications will only be considered if places still remain after all applications received by the closing date have been processed.

 

YEAR 11 STUDENTS at MGS: you will be receiving advice in school prior to your application. Once submitted electronically, later in the year, you will have a meeting with a member of senior staff to discuss your suitability for the courses you have chosen. Following this, we will write to you to confirm your provisional offer and the entry requirements required. Having met the requirements for entry, you will not be in competition with external students for a place at MGS.

 

If you are currently at a state school in Kent, you can apply normally using UCAS Progress.

 

If you are at a state school outside of Kent, or at an Independent school, you will need to contact the Area Prospectus Team on 01622 694921 or 694742 to secure a user name and password which you then use to register and use the UCAS Progress and apply system.

 

Applicants from other schools will be invited to attend for a meeting with a senior member of staff. Thereafter if your application is successful, you will be given the opportunity to discuss your application in more detail in February which will be followed by a letter about your admission to the school. We will, of course, write to you with the necessary details. The school offers 50 places a year to external students. The over-subscription criteria are set out in detail on the school website and in the 6th form prospectus, but are based on the quality of expected GCSE predictions.

 

Entry Criteria: to be accepted on to a course in Year 12, students must meet the following academic criteria:

  1. An average point score of 45 points or better*

  2. The requirements set down in the subject entry of the 6th Form Prospectus

 

To calculate your average point score, you award each GCSE grade a score using the following scales and divide by the number of GCSEs taken.

 

(old GCSE) A* 58, A 52, B 46, C 40, D 34, E 28, F 22, G 16, U 0

(new GCSEs)9= 60, 8=56, 7= 52, 6=48, 5=44, 4=40, 3=32, 2=24, 1=16.

 

 

 

 

About us

MGS was founded in 1549 and has been providing high quality education for the young people of Maidstone ever since. This remains our mission. We were judged to be an Outstanding School by Ofsted in 2013. We offer a wide range of courses. At 14-16, these are GCSEs. Our post-16 provision allows students to study over 20 A Levels. Students must choose to study 4 A Levels.  It is important that students refer to the Curriculum Section of the School's 6th Form Prospectus (available on the school's web site, or hard copy from the school) to ensure that they choose their courses appropriately.
