Bishop of Rochester Academy (formerly Medway Community College) is a coeducational secondary school and sixth form with academy status, located in Chatham in the English county of Kent.[1]

As Medway Community College it was a community school directly controlled by Medway Council. The school converted into a Church of England academy in September 2010,[2] and was renamed Bishop of Rochester Academy. The school, designed by Nicholas Hare Architects, is now sponsored by the Diocese of Rochester, Canterbury Christ Church University and Medway Council.[3]

Bishop of Rochester Academy offers GCSEs and BTECs as programmes of study for pupils, while students in the sixth form have the option to study from a range of A Levels and further BTECs.[4] The school also operates a grammar school stream for academically gifted pupils.[5]
