Welcome to Weald of Kent Grammar School
Your future starts here.
In our competitive and ever-changing world, choosing the right environment in which to complete your formal school education is more important than ever.
At Weald it is not just that we support our students to achieve academic excellence, it is the resilience, strength of character and clear understanding of who they are and what they believe in that mark our students apart. As a Weald girl myself, I have benefitted first hand from the opportunities that being part of our school offers and am committed to continuing this proud tradition.
Our co-educational sixth form is forward thinking, exciting and challenging. The range of academic subjects, combined with extra-curricular opportunities, are designed to prepare you for the next stage of your journey.
I would like to invite you to come and see us, talk to our amazing students and staff, read about our accomplishments on our website and really understand why I believe that Weald is the right choice for you.
Sixth Form Open Evening - 18 October 2018 - 5.30pm - 8.00pm
I am enormously proud to be the Headteacher of Weald of Kent Grammar School. As an ex-Weald girl myself, I have benefitted first hand from the opportunities that a first rate Weald education offers. I understand it is not just that our students are supported to achieve excellent academic results, it is the resilience, strength of character and clear understanding of who they are and what they believe in that marks our students apart. I am committed to protecting and developing this proud tradition for our current and future students.
I, and everyone here at Weald, hold the strong belief that we are all capable of achieving amazing things if we are supported to find the road to get there. This is where the relationship between home, school and the wider community come in. We are a School that welcomes the chance to meet Parents and Carers face to face; not only on formal occasions, but also at many informal events including concerts, shows, Duke of Edinburgh Award hike supervision, etc. The PTA provides many other ways for Staff, Students and Parents to enjoy time together and the popular Christmas Fayre and Year 7 and 8 Disco are two favorites.
We are not a school that is complacent. Ofsted judged us to be outstanding in April 2007 and in May 2014, as a further indicator of our sustained performance, the Dfe awarded us Teaching School status. In the same year we also achieved Thinking School status. We demand that the learning experience for our Students moves with the times whilst maintaining the traditions of good manners, discipline and respect for others. Our supportive, yet rigorous Governing Body regularly review the progress that the school is making, and it was as a result of their shared vision and forward-thinking approach that we were able to open the Sevenoaks Annexe in 2017, becoming the first grammar school in the country to do so.
I would like to invite you to come and see us, talk to our amazing students and staff and really understand why I believe that Weald is such a unique and amazing school.

We have a new Sixth Form Hub which has been set out along the same lines of a university learning centre, with areas to work in groups or individually. We also have the Sixth Form 'Hard Wok' cafe where students can meet in a relaxed environment.. These areas offer a place to meet informally or prepare for lessons. Sixth Form students are always welcome in the Learning Resource Centre and Careers Area and are often found working in department areas during their non-contact time.
Weald has a Student Services Centre where all students can access help and support in both their learning and health and wellbeing. Students with specific learning needs can be catered for with laptops and designated extra time during examinations. The Sixth Form Tutors are approachable and experienced in supporting students during their A Levels and beyond.
