Joining MGS in September 2022
Welcome to your new school.
Congratulations on gaining a place at Maidstone Grammar School and we look forward to getting to know you in the months ahead.
Changing schools can be a daunting prospect, since there will be new challenges and demands for you to meet; but we know that you will find life at MGS both stimulating and friendly. We will make your transfer as easy as possible.
There are two important dates for you to remember in the next few months:
Wednesday 27 April: when we have a meeting at 7.00pm in the Big Hall. This is for parents/carers and boys and is to tell you more about coming to MGS.
Thursday 14 July: when we have our Induction Day and invite all new boys to come to MGS for the whole day.
In addition, all boys and their parents/carers will be invited to join us for a House Tea in June. This will give you the chance to meet your Head of House, Assistant Head of House and other Year 6 students joining your house. Invitations will confirm date details once house allocations have been made in Term 6. Please do not purchase any house specific kit until your son’s house is confirmed.
Further information to welcome you to MGS will follow in due course as part of our transition programme for Year 6 students. Meanwhile, please do read the information below on this webpage and click here to complete our Performing Arts questionnaire. We will use your answers to help us prepare for your education in Drama and Music.
We look forward to meeting you soon and wish you a happy and successful education at MGS.
