Bishop of Rochester Academy

The Victory Academy (formerly Bishop of Rochester Academy and Medway Community College) is a mixed secondary school and sixth form 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, was sponsored by the Diocese of Rochester, Canterbury Christ Church University and Medway Council.[3] In 2015 the academy changed its name due to severing ties with The Church of England,[4] and is now sponsored by the Thinking Schools Academy Trust.

The Victory 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.[5] The school also operates a grammar school stream for academically gifted pupils.[6]
