Welcome

Sir Joseph Williamson’s Mathematical School (or ‘the Math’ as it is known locally) is a boys’ grammar school with 1250 students on roll that admits girls in the sixth form. The school is very popular and is regularly oversubscribed. The school became an Academy in April 2011.

We are a National Support School and the Headteacher is a National Leader of Education. The school also became one of the first 100 schools in the country to have been designated a National Teaching School and as such is the lead school in the Medway Teaching School’s Alliance (MTSA).

Ofsted judge the school to be ‘Outstanding’, a grading the school has held since 2005. In our last report the lead inspector noted that ‘a buzz of excitement pervades the school.’

Recent years have seen the school consistently improve on already outstanding examination results.  Results in 2016 saw 100% of pupils gain Maths and English, 86% gain the Ebacc and the best A Level results in the school's history. However, the school offers more than outstanding academic outcomes, it also provides exceptional opportunities for individual develop in sport, the arts, music and many other areas.
