Temple School is a boys secondary modern in Strood, Rochester, Kent, in England.


In 2006, 2% of the pupils gained 5 passes with Maths and English at GCSE, leading the press to dub it the worst school in the country. [cite web|url=http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/kent/6252611.stm|title=Worst school marks 'unacceptable'|work=BBC.co.uk|date=11 January 2007] . In 2007, it was 16% and the press were not interested. In 2007, Temple school beat 4 Medway schools in the key KS2- KS4 value added indicator. [ [http://education.guardian.co.uk/secondaries/tables/0,,2237738,00.html League Tables] ]

Temple school also suffers from serious bullying issues. The school claims to have a "zero-tolerance" policy in regards to bullying, when in fact the teaching staff at the school are more likely to sweep such issues under the carpet, and even lie to pupils and parents affected by bullying, saying that the school will take action against the perpatrators, and then not following through.


The school follows the National Curriculum at Key Stage 3, but are more flexible at Stage 4 [ [http://www.temple.medway.sch.uk/curriculum.html curriculum - official website] ]


Medway council intends to close Chapter School, and Temple School and build an academy to replace them. Parents of students at Chapter have fought a rear guard action to reverse the decision.
