Maritime Academy is firmly dedicated to transforming life chances for every student.

We want all our students to feel they have the support behind them to aspire to be their very best selves and be taught the right skills to help them achieve their goals.

 

Applying for Maritime Academy?


As a parent, one of the most important decisions you will make will be which secondary school your child will attend. Your child’s secondary education will provide the foundation for their future as adults. They will acquire the skills, knowledge and qualifications they will need to progress onto further education and fulfilling, rewarding careers.

Maritime Academy is a non-selective academy for boys and girls. Prospective pupils are not required to take or pass the Medway Test or any other entry tests to apply for a place at the Academy.

 

Maritime Academy will be offering a Sixth Form education to those students who are willing to further challenge themselves academically through the pursuit of A-level qualifications.

The Academy will open to prospective Sixth form students from September 2027.

 

Part of The Thinking Schools Academy Trust


A multi-academy trust previously ranked by the Department for Education as the highest-performing trust for Secondary Schools, Thinking Schools Academy Trust is proud to be welcoming Maritime Academy into our family of schools.

The Thinking Schools Academy Trust is made up of a family of schools that work together to “improve the life chances” of all our children and young people. We share a common mission to nurture successful children who are confident and can think and act independently. Our cognitive approach to education defines us but does not create a “one size fits all”.

At the heart of The Thinking Schools Academy Trust is the belief that the work that we do must transform the life chances of students.

 

From day one of year 7, students at the Maritime Academy will all receive access to one:one device so that they can benefit from a curriculum that has been developed with digital learning at its core.

We believe that learning is not just something that happens within the classroom – it is something that transcends the uniform and the text book and stays with students once they have left school.
