The school was rated outstanding in its most recent Ofsted inspection

Staff from Wilmington Grammar School for Girls (WGSG) attended a celebration event this week to recognise their success in recent Ofsted inspections.

Some 26 schools were invited to the Mercure Hotel, Maidstone, to receive certificates of appreciation from Kent County Council’s (KCC) cabinet member for education Roger Gough and corporate director Patrick Leeson.

WGSG was rated outstanding by Ofsted and is among 88 per cent of schools in Kent that are judged to be good or outstanding.

KCC’s ambition is for the number of schools rated as requiring improvement or inadequate to fall to zero.

Mr Gough congratulated the recipients and told them: “Your schools are great examples of what can be achieved with the right leadership from yourselves and the continued commitment of your staff.”

Staff from Craylands Primary in Swanscombe were also at the event to have their achievements recognised.
