Kent County Council (KCC) as the Local Authority has a statutory duty to ensure sufficient school places are available. The County Council’s Commissioning Plan for Education Provision in Kent 2019-23 is a five-year rolling plan which is updated annually. It sets out our future plans as Strategic Commissioner of Education Provision across all types and phases of education in Kent. A copy of the plan can be viewed from this link:

It is anticipated that there will be significant short and medium-term pressure for additional Year 7 places in the Gravesham and Longfield Selective Planning Group which indicates that additional capacity will be needed for 2019/20 and in later years.

Therefore, KCC has asked Gravesend Grammar School to provide additional places for local children by expanding the school.
