Graveney’s Sixth Form Open Evening will take place on Tuesday 10th October from 5.30pm-8.30pm.

The Sixth Form will also be offering the opportunity for current Yr11 students from other schools, accompanied by their parent/legal guardian, to book tours of the school for that evening.

Further details regarding how to book these tours for prospective Yr7 pupils & 6TH Form students will be available on our website in ‘Admissions’ section at the end of September.

Graveney benefits from a beautiful, leafy campus, comprising eleven buildings including a former Georgian stately home, a Victorian school building, several architecturally interesting blocks built in the 1960s, a prizewinning new block which opened in 2016 and a second new block was completed in September 2019 which includes 10 humanities classrooms and an observatory.

This state of the art Oppenheimer Observatory was awarded the New London Architectural Award in 2020.

In 2023 – 87% of Graveney pupils achieved a grade 4 or above in both English and mathematics and an astonishing 52% of all grades were 7 – 9.

In November 2022 Graveney achieved ‘Outstanding’ status in each of the six areas defined by the Ofsted Framework.

Graveney has been deemed ‘Outstanding’ from Ofsted six times.

Each year, including during the non-examined COVID years of 2020 and 2021, Graveney’s results remained not just consistent but consistently excellent.

The school’s overall attainment score places it in the top 10% of schools in the country.

Graveney’s Year 7 pupils are drawn from a wide number of local schools, the vast majority of pupils living locally.

In addition to a rigorous academic curriculum, a wide range of sports, musical and cultural extra-curricular activities are offered to ensure that pupils are well rounded and encouraged to excel in a variety of different walks of life.

There is particular emphasis on outdoor education, the school is one of the largest Duke of Edinburgh centres in the country and all Year 7 Graveney pupils participate in a weeklong trip to Wales.

Both of these outdoor pursuits help students to build confidence, resilience and a tight-knit community within the school.

Graveney Sixth Form students benefit from the collegiate feel of the campus which provides a well-supported transition to University and into the world of work.

Students can choose from over thirty A Level subjects and a small range of vocational courses, all taught on the Graveney site.

The Sixth Form attracts a diverse range of students, from its own Year 11 as well as from other schools, who quickly settle into a cohesive academic community where aspiration is nurtured and opportunity is celebrated.

Students mainly progress to Higher Education with very large numbers going onto Russell Group Universities (47% in 2023) or prestigious degree apprenticeships.

The school is in the top twenty schools in Inner London, and of these in the top ten state schools, for Oxbridge entry with 9 students gaining Oxbridge places in 2023. Students make excellent progress and success is valued in all its forms.

The Sixth Form provides a dynamic and positive experience, to enable students to achieve their goals.
Graveney looks forward to welcoming you to the school’s Open events.

They provide excellent opportunities for prospective pupils and their parents to have a tour of the school’s facilities, to visit subject departments and see our exciting approaches to teaching as well as to find out the answers to the many ‘frequently asked questions’.
