Bryony School provides a broad, balanced and inspiring education, where children are challenged to achieve the extraordinary. You only have to look at some of the activities in our classes to see how our teachers are pushing the boundaries of what you might expect the respective age groups to be learning. We encourage independence of thought and the confidence to question and investigate.

Celebrating the achievements of our pupils is an important part of our school culture. We have two particularly important occasions a year where we take time to reflect on the academic, sporting and music achievements of the past year:

Speech Day which is a prize-giving event attended by pupils and their parents or guardians from Reception upwards. It’s a happy occasion but also a sad one as we say goodbye to our Year 6 pupils who will be going to secondary school.

Pre-School Graduation which is a time for our 3-4 year olds to get dressed up in special graduating gowns and mark the important transition to ‘big school’.
 

End of Key Stage 2 - May 2016

 The 2016 Key Stage 2 assessments are the first which assess the new, more challenging national curriculum. Results for 2016 are therefore not comparable to those for earlier years.

11 Plus / Destinations of our Year 6 Leavers

Bryony School has an excellent reputation for success at grammar school and independent school entry at 11. Unlike many other schools, every child is given the opportunity to sit the selection tests for secondary school. We do not pre-select those we enter into Medway and Kent Age 11 Assessments (11 plus) in order to maintain our excellent results. We value the contribution and progress made by all our pupils. This means that when our results are aggregated into some league tables, the performance of all our pupils in any one year is compared to a selective amount in other schools who have been put forward because their school thought they would definitely pass.

Parents should therefore treat such indicators with caution as they are not reliable indicators from which to generalise the academic performance of our school.

2015/2016 is the first year that not all children decided to sit the test as they joined late on in their Bryony School education. Of those that sat the test, 86.96% have gone to Grammar school (20 out of 23 children).

The children leaving Bryony School in Year 6 mainly gain admission into Rainham Mark Grammar School, Rochester Grammar School for Girls, Sir Joseph’s Mathematical School for Boys, Chatham Grammar School for Boys, Chatham Grammar School for Girls, Fort Pitt Grammar School for Girls, Borden Grammar and Highsted Grammar . A small number of children move on instead to other independent schools.
