Wherever you are, we send you greetings and best wishes.  Mr M Liddicoat, Headteacher



The Archbishop’s School is now, not only an Ofsted Graded ‘Good’ School, but one that continues to impress with its results!

54% of Year 11 pupils achieved 5 GCSEs that were between A*-C including English and Maths.  This is the school’s best result in four years making us the highest performing non-selective school in East Kent!

60% of students achieved 5 A*-C grades.

96% of students achieved 5 GCSE passes!

We are extremely proud of last year’s cohort and are pleased to welcome so many back into the school’s Sixth Form.

A Level results continue to be impressive with student performance equating to a C- and in line with the performance of other schools in Kent.

The school has already been recognised by Kent Live who have rated us as one of the Top 25 non selective schools in Kent.  With such strong results this year we are aiming to go even higher in next year’s list!  Click the link below to read more:

Investor in Careers Award - achieved once again!

We are pleased to advise that after a long and gruelling inspection, we have, for the second time in a row, been awarded the prestigious IiC quality award mark.

All areas of the Careers Faculty were inspected with a particular focus on our increased offer of 'External Independent Careers Advice', the comprehensive key stage 3 and 4 'Careers Education and Guidance Curriculum' as well as the significant increase in 'Work Related Learning Opportunities' within the Sixth Form.

We would like to thank all staff who have contributed so enthusiastically towards this crucial work, as well as to all the students themselves who have taken such an interest in the opportunities that have been provided for them.  Mr A Martin
