Welcome to Maidstone Grammar School
Maidstone Grammar School is like an extended but close-knit family. Our aims are the same as every family: to keep our children and young people safe, to meet their needs, to build ties and bonds within the wider community and support them in times of challenge and adversity. This includes developing morals and fostering patience, humility, courage, ambition, drive and enthusiasm. We respect individuals and individuality but we share common goals, beliefs and values, irrespective of age, gender or background.
We encourage our students to be interesting and interested, aspirational and inspirational. We want our students to leave school as young adults that any family would wish their child to be when they leave home: Confident, self-assured, with a strong work ethic and better prepared both academically and socially to go out into an ever-changing world.
We look forward to our future but we value our past and particularly our traditions, believing they provide a solid and stable foundation for the whole school. We believe that forming strong and lasting relationships is the basis of a successful and fulfilling school life and is one of our greatest strengths.
No young person learns effectively unless he or she feels safe, secure and happy. Maidstone Grammar School is a caring and supportive school and we try to address the individual needs of every student through a comprehensive, flexible pastoral system. As such, we work together to develop self-respect, self-discipline and self-understanding.
As the Headmaster of Maidstone Grammar School, I am dedicated to ensuring that all students fulfil their potential, have goals and ambitions, and are happy and successful whilst at school. I also wish to help them develop those characteristics, morals and values that will underpin their future lives. I want them to become young people to whom we will look up, an adult we will want to say we taught - and of whom we are proud.
