Holcombe Grammar School consultation regarding possible co-ed admissions from September 2018
The Holcombe Grammar School consultation regarding a change to admission arrangements ended in early January 2017.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to respond or put forward views regarding the proposal. We were very pleased with the large response that we achieved, especially from parents at New Horizons where we also conducted a focus group interview of parents.
The findings of the consultation were as follows:
We want to take on board the feedback from both the consultation and the focus group, which has demonstrated overwhelming support from your fellow parents at New Horizons, especially that they would very much like wider choice of selective provision in Medway.
As a result, and to accommodate this, we have decided to apply for the change to co-ed to come in from September 2019, rather than September 2018, as this will coincide with the first cohort of New Horizons students transferring to secondary school. We are very excited about the prospect of HGS becoming co-educational.
