Welcome to Gillingham School!
We both arrived here as year seven students, nervous at the prospect of starting at such a different school to our primary schools. Oh how the times have changed. As these years have seemingly flown by, Gillingham School has helped us develop into the best we can possibly be, not only growing academically, but also helping us prepare for the future wherever that may lead. Over our time here, we’ve made new friends, experienced great adventures and been given the opportunity to discover who we want to be.
The support of all the staff throughout our time here has encouraged us to reach new levels of learning and achieve to the best of our ability. The teachers provided us with friendly, studious and welcoming environments, frequently going out of their way to ensure the best experience for every pupil. This is one of the many attributes that make Gillingham School stand out from the rest.
The opportunities that the school provides are endless, ranging from a trip to the Swiss Alps to local residential trips, all of which we have found to have given us memories we will keep forever. Foreign exchanges to France and Germany take place annually and have given us a fresh insight into our discovery of new languages and cultures, widening our knowledge about the rest of the world.
The school accommodates all interests and talents, from sports clubs to Jazz bands, plays to the Sixth Form Extravaganza. It is a school where everyone can feel welcome and appreciated.
Students of Gillingham School leave feeling proud of their accomplishments and well prepared for whatever journey they take next.
All of this has made us recognise how privileged we are to now become Head Boy and Head Girl of the school, continuing its legacy of helping students achieve to the fullest of their potential, discovering their talents and overcoming their boundaries.
