About Us

Local Authority

The school system has become complicated with the many academies and free schools, especially as some schools became academies out of choice following a successful Ofsted whilst others were forced to become academies following less than successful Ofsteds.  

Wainscott is happy to remain a Local Authority (LA) controlled school for now and enjoys a very successful and supportive working relationship with Medway Council.  This means we are funded by the Local Authority and work closely with their officers to continue improving our school.
