About The Robert Napier School

The Robert Napier School seeks to redefine what is possible in education: by insisting on the highest standards of behaviour; by delivering a well-planned and inclusive curriculum well; and by providing our students with a compelling aspiration-raising ethos we seek to transform the future of students in our community. We believe in providing an education that equips students with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in an ever-changing global society. 

Built upon the school motto of Learn, Believe, Achieve, we look to engender the school value of respect, trust, perseverance, resilience, fairness, and courage in all of our students, ensuring they are ready to contribute to their community when they leave us at the end of their studies.  All staff are central to ensuring students have the right attitude towards their own learning and success, taking advantage of all of the opportunities afforded by the school and leave the school at the end of their studies, ready to contribute to the local community.

Based in the heart of the Medway Towns, The Robert Napier School is a non-selective, mixed secondary school of 1100 students, including 130 in the Sixth Form.  The school is an eclectic mix of the old and the new, with the original buildings constructed in the 1850s when the school was the original ‘Gillingham Grammar School’.  Since then, the school has grown to include a range of buildings, the most recent being the ‘Caxton’ block, formally opened in 2011.  The school has excellent facilities including state of the art ICT provision, a purpose-built lecture theatre, retractable bleacher seating in the hall to accommodate up to 380 people, a permanent stage with full lighting and sound rig, a multi-use games area, large playing fields and excellent sports facilities.  The school also provides specialist Access to Mainstream Provision for vulnerable students, as well as a dedicated Visually Impaired unit.

Our students are at the heart of every decision. Everything we do is about ensuring their experiences at school help them develop into the best they can be in a caring, supportive environment with a strong pastoral structure at the centre of the school. We have high expectations and high aspirations for every one of our students and our vision is Learn. Believe. Achieve.  

We value our staff, investing in their training and development at all stages of their career.  Comprehensive, individualised training plans are drawn up for all staff, designed to meet their needs and enable them to take the next step in their career.  New staff engage in a comprehensive induction programme and are allocated a subject specific mentor, as well as a dedicated coach all of which is aimed to ease your transition into the school.
