Most of our students join us in Year 7 at the start of the academic year following transfer from their Primary School. Students moving into the area may wish to apply for places at the school in-year. There is opportunity also for students to join the school at the beginning of 6th Form following their GCSEs.
Admission to Year 7 in September 2020
The school have agreed to accommodate an additional form for September 2020. This means there will be 7 forms in Year 7 and 210 children in total. We have made offers for these places and the year group is full. If parents need advice they should firstly read the ‘Information for Parents’ document below. This will deal with most issues, but where parents need further advice, we are happy, on receipt of an email, to assist further. Please include a telephone number in your correspondence.
Admissions queries should be directed to Mr I Cook, Admissions Manager, at email@example.com but please check the documents below which may answer any questions you have.
In-year admissions, sometimes called casual admissions, are those applications made after the normal entry procedure for transfer from primary school through to the end of secondary education. Applications should be made to the Admissions Manager at the school address using the In-Year Casual Application Form found at the end of this section. Students looking to secure places must be successful in the School’s Entrance Examinations.
Gravesend Grammar School would normally only consider applications made from applicants:
We do not recommend students transfer from other secondary schools after the beginning of Year 9 when GCSE courses commence. Further information about In-Year Admissions can be found in the document below.

The Sixth form is the bridge to your future and the gateway to the rest of your life. We are proud to have a thriving and lively Sixth Form at GGS offering a wide range of subjects and enrichment opportunities. We are delighted with the exam success our students achieve and the fine, young men and women who leave us at the end of Year 13, ready and prepared to face the challenges of life beyond school.
Being in the Sixth Form at GGS is challenging but it should also be seen as an opportunity. In an increasingly competitive world, our students leave this school with the ability to stand out from the crowd.
GGS students apply for 6th Form places by submitting their A Level subject choices by the internal deadline of 14th February 2020.
Applications from students from other schools are welcomed. You will apply via an on-line form which will be made live on this page on Friday 13th December after our Sixth Form Information Evening.
If you would like to see the School ‘in action’ and meet staff and students currently at the School, there are times scheduled for you to do this during the year prior to your date of intended entry.
