Towers School and Sixth Form Centre

Prospective Students

The Vision

Towers School Grammar Stream offers students the unique opportunity to have access to a traditional grammar school education while benefiting from a co-educational setting. Students will be following a structured curriculum that will focus on achieving rapid progress through an accelerated pace of learning. Alongside the academic programme, students will be given access to a range of enrichment activities which will enable them to further develop their own individual talents and skills. We will also be working closely with the University of Kent to help students think about their aspirations and further education.

Applications and Selection of Students:

Students and parents express an interest to be part of the Grammar Stream by completing the form below. Students who have achieved a pass in the Kent test are automatically considered. 

In addition, when we are oversubscribed, the following data is considered when selecting places:

At Towers, we are aware that students' progress through their schooling is not linear and some children make accelerated progress through Secondary school. Therefore, we carefully review student progress and offer additional opportunities to join the grammar stream in later years when appropriate. 


As the Grammar Stream students work at an accelerated pace, we are able to tailor the curriculum to suit their needs and create a variety of future pathways. Working as a specialist teaching team, the teachers, alongside the leadership team, ensure that teaching and learning is evidence informed and utilises the best possible practice to create depth of knowledge and challenge for students.


Alongside the academic programme on offer, we strive to provide Grammar Stream students with a range of experiences that will help them to grow and develop throughout their time at Towers. We have established strong links with the University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University and, as such, Grammar Stream students will participate in activities led by university student ambassadors. We also visit the campuses regularly to encourage students to think about the possibilities in higher education. 

Current and future Grammar Stream enrichment opportunities may include:
