The Rochester Grammar School’s mission is encapsulated in three words: “transforming life chances.” We are a proud International Baccalaureate World School, and have been since 2007, we aim to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring students by encouraging and valuing academic, creative, sporting and responsible behaviours through our exciting programme of extra-curricular opportunities – learning doesn’t end in the classroom.
We are part of the Thinking Schools Academy Trust (TSAT) and share a commitment “to provide on outstanding school with an ethos of excellence and high expectations; underpinned by the principles of a fully integrated thinking school.”
My team and I are committed, not just to what our students learn, but how they learn and how they grow in confidence, independence and with critical thinking.
Our broad and balanced curriculum, which is traditional and academic, provides students with the cultural capital required to build the foundations of a successful life.
The curriculum vision here at RGS is metacognitive; by using Thinking Tools the Thinking Schools Academy Trust are unique in their focus on ensuring that students are equipped with the tools they need to reflect on the knowledge they learn throughout life. As a result, the Rochester Grammar School is recognised by Exeter University as one of the few Advanced Thinking Schools in the country and is pioneering the use of a cognitive approach to education and student learning.
I look forward to welcoming you to our school.
