ADMISSIONS

During September your daughters’ primary school will give you a booklet with a Common Application Form (CAF) enclosed. The booklet will provide information about all secondary schools in Kent and their admission criteria. It will also detail information on each secondary schools open evening and week, allowing you as a parent the opportunity to view and visit the schools, enabling you to make an informed choice.

You will be asked to select 3 schools and put them in order of preference. E.g. Northfleet School for Girls as your first choice school, followed by St Georges then Thamesview. You then return the completed CAF to your daughters’ primary school and once they have collected all the forms they will send them to KCC. The CAF can also be completed online by visiting the www.kent.gov.uk/ola website.

At the beginning of March you will be sent a letter by KCC informing you which school your daughter has been allocated.  If you are not happy with the school you have been allocated you have a right to appeal against the decision.  The appeal form will be included in your offer letter.  You can only appeal for a place in a school that was on your original CAF.  Please note if you were allocated your first choice school and decided that you did not want this you can not appeal for a second or third place on your CAF.

This year KCC will not be controlling the reallocation of places, after the 1st of March you will have to apply directly to the secondary school requesting to be placed on their lists.  Everyone on the waiting list will be put in order of priority, according to the school’s oversubscription criteria.

If you move into the area after the cut off date for the CAF to be returned to KCC you will need to contact them to request a late application form. For application forms please contact KCC on 01622 696652.

Casual Admissions

If you are moving into the area or just wish to move your daughter from a local secondary school to us you need to officially make the application in writing. The information we require are your daughter’s full name, address, date of birth, two telephone contact numbers and the name of the school your daughter currently attends. As soon as a place becomes available we will contact you to see if you are still interested in the place, if so, we will arrange for you and your daughter to come in to meet the Head of Community and have a look around the school. Our waiting list is compiled as per KCC instruction by distance order.

For further information, please contact Mrs Abbott our Admissions Officer on 01474 831034.

SIXTH FORM

The Sixth Form has its own social area and uses the learning resources centre as a study area.

Northfleet School for Girls has a Sixth Form which is an exciting and thriving community. The opportunities available have been increased by our involvement in the Gravesham Sixth Form partnership. The Secondary Schools in Gravesham work together to expand the choice of subjects available through shared courses. Northfleet School for Girls hosts a number of courses, details of which are available by request from the school and openly welcomes students from our partner schools.

This liaison will increase as we move to a virtual Sixth Form College in Gravesham, offering a wide range of courses to cater for all interests, abilities and ambitions. Many students leave the Sixth Form to go to study at Universities or Colleges of Higher Education and become part of our growing number of graduate students.

Full details of the courses can be found + here

EDUCATION

Our Subjects: The Learning Journey

As parents and carers you are the most influence in your daughter's aspirations and outcomes. As a school we are actively seeking to improve how we can help you as parents to understand what you can do at home and involve you in working with us to suppport your daughter through all the stages of her learning and development.

Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 and 9)

During the first three years students follow a programme of studies which includes all the National Curriculum subjects of: Art and Design, English, French, Geography, History, Information Communication Technology, Mathematics, Music, Physical Education, Religious Education, Science and Technology. Students also study Dance, Drama, and Personal, Social and Health Education which includes Citizenship. These are seen as essential elements in our curriculum and help our students to develop self-awareness, self-esteem and self-confidence.

Key Stage 4 (Years 10 and 11)

Students in Years 10 and 11 are required to continue with a broad and balanced curriculum. The curriculum matches the requirements of the National Curriculum, although we do use the flexibility available to create individual programmes of study to suit students who are especially gifted and talented, those who wish to follow a more work related curriculum or who need to spend additional time on basic skills. The curriculum offered ensures that all students have the opportunity to gain the qualifications essential for life in a modern, global technological society and allows every girl to have a real choice from the huge range of career opportunities. We believe that it is important for every girl to have a choice of subjects but not to specialise too early. We encourage girls to choose at least one practical or aesthetic subject.

Sixth Form (Years 12 and 13)

Students in the Sixth Form follow a one year or two year programme and study AS, A Level, Vocational AS and A Level and Intermediate and Foundation Courses chosen from a wide range of subjects. The majority of our students study four AS Levels. The AS examinations are taken in Year 12, these can then be continued in the second year of the course to full A2 qualification. The opportunities available have been increased by our involvement in the Gravesham Sixth Form partnership. The Secondary Schools in Gravesham work together to expand the choice of subjects available through shared courses. All students in the Sixth Form follow a Personal and Social Skill Pass and Key Skills programme each week which includes careers education, Higher Education advice, Citizenship and Moral education.

How can you help?

  • Don't be afraid of doing the wrong thing, actively being involved in your daughter's education can mean:
  • Take an interest in what your daughter is learning at school
  • Help your daughter with her homework, but being careful not to do it for her
  • Teach your daughter how to organise herself
  • Encourage your daughter to watch out for programmes that have something to do with school
  • Talk regularly about school and discus your daughters progress

Remember, whatever level of involvement try and do it consistently and stick with it because it will make an important difference in your daughter's education.
