Meopham School has maintained its rating of Good in a recent Ofsted inspection.

The secondary school, on Wrotham Road, Meopham, was recognised as the highest performing high school in Kent for the second year running in the January School Performance Tables.

In the report, which was published last week, it is acknowledged that “pupils make exceptional progress in the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science, and in almost all other subjects.”

The school’s Progress 8 score, which captures the progress a pupil makes from the end of primary school to the end of secondary school, is 0.57, placing it in the top 10pc of schools nationally.

Lead inspector, Sue Child, concluded that, “The school is improving towards being outstanding.”

Headteacher, Suzanne Dickinson, said, “I am proud that Ofsted praises our ‘ambitious culture’ which seeks to ensure academic excellence for all.

“We are thrilled to receive this independent validation of our work.”
