Due to the selective system, pupils arrive at the school below the national average in terms of attainment but leave the school at above the national level of attainment. These statistics contributed to two 'Outstanding' Ofsted judgements, in 2008 and 2012. In 2012, achievement, teaching, behaviour and leadership were all judged as 'Outstanding'. All pupil categories show positive value added and in 2013 the Best 8 Value Added score placed the school in the top 2% of schools nationally.

At the heart of its success is a relentless drive to ensure that pupils make exceptional levels of progress in literacy and numeracy, with standards in core subjects a top priority. The academy has a highly regarded reputation across Kent and beyond. It is a National Support School which means it works with other schools, in more challenging circumstances, on whole school improvement.
