Headteacher's Introduction

Alan Moore - BSC; ARCS

Welcome to Rainham Mark Grammar School and our family of schools. At RMGS we recognise the importance of academic success but we also know that character development is essential not only in school, but in the life beyond.

Our role is to nurture boys’ and girls’ moral and intellectual character in a safe and supportive environment preparing young people for the challenges of employment and further study. The school is rightly proud of its long tradition of academic excellence which compares very favourably with standards achieved in single-sex grammar schools. When your child starts their RMGS journey in Year 7, we cultivate their individuality enabling them to flourish in a secure, cooperative and stimulating atmosphere. This is a friendly school: discipline is firm but fair and we foster mutual respect between all members of the school community.  We are proud that students fulfil their potential and leave us as resilient, confident and intellectually curious men and women ready to contribute to higher education and to society as a whole.  Our broad curriculum - including Art & Design, Drama, Music and three languages - means an opportunity to thrive for all students. Our Science Learning Partnership status, modern teaching suites, 6th Form study area, sports centre, dance studio, computing facilities and refectory all contribute to a well-equipped and appropriate learning environment.  Crucially, all our work is underpinned by our highly qualified, dedicated and innovative specialist staff. Working with parents, governors and our family of schools, we look forward to providing a stimulating and rewarding education which goes beyond the classroom and contributes to the lifeblood of the community.  Choosing a school is not an easy task so I encourage you to visit us during a normal school day.  You can book a tour through the office to take place during October, check our website nearer the time for information.  We all look forward to meeting you and showing you the quality of education on offer here at Rainham Mark Grammar School.
