Thomas Aveling is a mixed secondary modern school for students aged 11-18. It is situated in Rochester in  the Medway unitary authority, an area that operates a selective education system, with 25% of students selected for grammar school at 11. There are students from a wide range of backgrounds, but the proportion from disadvantaged backgrounds is much higher than average. There are 1100 students on the school roll with a sixth form of 180. Most students will be first generation graduates.

Due to our cohort of students we offer both academic and vocational subjects.

Students may embark on a wholly academic  choice of subjects , wholly vocational or a mixture of both, dependent upon their results at GCSE.

Thomas Aveling use internal assessment to allow realistic predicted grades.
