Welcome to Maidstone Grammar School for Girls


Thank you for taking the time to look at our website. Maidstone Grammar School for Girls (MGGS) has been providing an academic education for girls (and boys in the Sixth Form) from the town of Maidstone, and its surrounding area for over 130 years. We have a mission to continue to provide ‘ A tradition of  excellence’ in the education all our students receive, as well as ensuring we develop young adults of character, who are able to become flourishing individuals in our society by building on our school motto of ‘non sibi sed omnibus’, (not for oneself but for all).

We aspire for all our students to achieve their very best and we are an established Advanced Thinking School, one of only six Advanced Thinking Schools in the UK. We wish our students to be intellectually sharp, agile thinkers who can think creatively and understand the subtlety & nuance of language and argument. We also want them to be able to draw upon learning experiences & strategies to help solve problems and questions that they do not automatically know the answers to. As such our students make excellent progress and achieve very well academically.

With a wide range of extracurricular activities. we work hard to build self-confidence, resilience, and leadership skills in all of our students.  We nurture individuality and scholarship to ensure that our young people will go on to take leading roles in society as happy and fulfilled adults.

We deliberately combine our rich tradition of community service, the school’s strong house system, with its annual House Arts Day each autumn, and focus on students as individuals,  with a full engagement of the latest technology available to enhance students’ learning. Indeed, we are a Leading Light school for Google Apps for Education, and work closely with Google UK to promote the use of this technology across education.

MGGS is a very special place. Our students love learning; they are talented, compassionate and inquiring young people who have a deep sense of belonging and commitment to their school.

I trust that you will find this an informative website. I would encourage those who wish to know more about MGGS to visit us. I look forward to welcoming you.
