Admission to Year 7 September 2020

TGS is a high achieving selective grammar school with academy status, educating girls between the ages of 11 and 16 and girls and boys in the Sixth Form. We are an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School.

The Governors have now determined the Admission Policy for entry in September 2020, unchanged from previous years, and is available below.

For entry to Year 7 all applicants must complete their Local Authority Secondary Common Application Form (SCAF).

The School can only consider applicants who have been selective assessed according to the Kent 11+ test which took place in September 2019. 

Admissions Update 17/10/19

It is impossible to accurately predict where TGS cut off scores will settle.

It is essential that families put schools on their application form in the order that they genuinely prefer them regardless of other factors like historical scoring patterns (past years' scores are available in the 'Briefing for Entry to Year 7' document below). Putting TGS as your first choice does not represent any risk to the likelihood of success at other schools on your list.

TGS is closed Monday 21 October to Friday 25 October for the half term holiday. Our Prospectus and supporting information below is designed to answer any of the questions you may have about the application process. You may also find that they can be answered by visiting the Kent County Council website here.

However, if you should require any further clarification please contact and we will respond as soon as we are able.

How to Apply

From September 2018 entry a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) (please click here to download) is required ONLY from applicants who are eligible for and wish to apply for a Pupil Premium place.  Please be aware the the SIF alone does not constitute an application.
