Tonbridge Grammar School
We are 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.
As an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, we blend the best of a traditional curriculum with the principles and ethos of the IB Organisation. This offers our students opportunities to learn in breadth and depth in order to develop as well-balanced individuals. They become active learners and are encouraged to be passionate about making a difference in the world.
The School prepares students for GCSEs and the International Baccalaureate Diploma. In addition to an extensive curricular timetable, our students take part in an extensive range of extracurricular activities.
About our school experience
- Individual requirements:
- SEP candidates are welcome. We prioritise experience for the subjects we are offering school direct places. If the candidate is going to apply to us as one of their choices we will consider a more extended period of SEP to support this application.
TGS is able to offer school experience for an initial day in most subjects. The days will include observations of lessons and the chance to discuss teaching with a range of teachers.
Follow up days may be offered for an agreed duration ( 3 days for general applicants and up to 10 days for eligible candidates who intend to apply for an ITT place at TGS). A DBS is preferred for follow up visits to allow student shadowing etc (this is not provided by the school).
- Chemistry, Computing, Design and technology, Drama, Economics, English, French, Geography, History, Maths, Music, Physics, Psychology, Religious education, and Spanish
