What the school says...
The Sir Joseph Williamsons Mathematical School is an 11-18 boys' Grammar School with over 310 in the co-educational sixth form, of whom around one third are female. Entry to the school is via an 11+ examination and we take approximately the top 25% of the ability range.
The school was inspected in November 2008 and judged to be Outstanding, with the lead inspector noting in her report that a buzz of excitement pervades the school. This success is echoed in the many awards which the school has received. These include Geographical Association's Geography Quality mark, Healthy Schools Award, and the Inclusive Schools Quality Mark.
Our aim is to support young people in becoming happy, confident and active citizens, ready to play a leading role in whatever walk of life they choose. We do this by ensuring our students achieve the best possible academic outcomes, while at the same time encouraging them to play a full and active part in the wider life of the school.
Aspire. Achieve. Excel

Special Education Needs
We provide support for pupils with physical disabilities, having excellent wheelchair access and experienced learning assistants who provide classroom support where needed, physiotherapy, etc. We also have experience of Asperger's Syndrome and Dyslexia and staff are provided with advice on how to support students and have all received training on Autism. We belong to the Medway Dyslexia Association who provide training for staff and offer pupil/parent support. We are the first grammar school in the Medway area to receive an 'Inclusion Mark' and inspectors noted that we offered among other things: high level of challenge for all pupils with appropriate support to ensure self esteem and achievement; powerful sense of respect in all relationships between staff and students and between students; excellent support, as a designated school, for physically disabled students who are fully included in all aspects of school life. We are a Grammar School so all pupils are able; teachers are required to provide differentiated learning. Gifted and talented pupils attend summer schools, have the opportunity to join National Academy for Gifted and Talented Youth, attend local events as and when they occur.
