SCHOOL CLOSURE ARRANGEMENTS
We take every possible action not to close our school, however, should the weather be so bad that having children on site is unsafe the following will happen:
- If the decision is taken before the start of the school day:
You will be contacted via 'Keep Kids Safe' that the school will be shut. We will also ensure that the website is kept up to date and will inform KM radio. If the decision is taken to close the school we will have someone on site to monitor any pupil who may arrive until they can be collected.
- If the decision is taken during the school day:
Parents/Guardians will be informed via 'Keep Kids Safe' and also update the school website. we will also allow pupils to contact home to arrange a convenient time to be collected. The site will stay open so pupils have a warm place to be until they are collected/make their way home.
This is how our recent Ofsted report rated the 6th Form at The Archbishop's School-
“A combination of determined and successful leadership, high expectations and good teaching have combined to make the sixth form more and more popular”
“Sixth form careers guidance is excellent”
“Nearly all learners attained the grades they needed to be accepted by their first choice higher education institution or to move on to employment or apprenticeships”
“Beyond their formal studies, learners are as well prepared for their futures”
“Pupils enjoy the high expectations and the style of the work”

STOP THE PRESS!
The Archbishop’s School is now, not only an Ofsted Graded ‘Good’ School, but one that continues to impress with its results!
54% of Year 11 pupils achieved 5 GCSEs that were between A*-C including English and Maths. This is the school’s best result in four years making us the highest performing non-selective school in East Kent!
60% of students achieved 5 A*-C grades.
96% of students achieved 5 GCSE passes!
We are extremely proud of last year’s cohort and are pleased to welcome so many back into the school’s Sixth Form.
A Level results continue to be impressive with student performance equating to a C- and in line with the performance of other schools in Kent.
The school has already been recognised by Kent Live who have rated us as one of the Top 25 non selective schools in Kent. With such strong results this year we are aiming to go even higher in next year’s list! Click the link below to read more:
