Schools in Gillingham

Gillingham, a thriving town in Kent, England, boasts a vibrant atmosphere and a diverse community. Located along the River Medway, near London and with a population of nearly 110,000 (as of 2020), it forms part of the city region known as the Medway Towns, which includes neighbouring Chatham, Rochester, and Strood. The town's history is rich, dating back to Anglo-Saxon times, with a strong heritage in military history and local industry. Key attractions include the historic Royal Engineers Museum, 108-year-old Gillingham Football Club, and a bustling High Street with a mixture of shops, markets, and a range of eateries and pubs. Gillingham is strategically located for commuters, with easy access to local transportation, including a nearby fast-rail service from London St Pancras, and close proximity to the area's Port of Tilbury and London's airports. A notable point is that Gillingham shares a name with Gillingham, Dorset, a more northerly town located within Dorset. However, the Kent town is significantly larger, with a softer pronunciation ("gihl-IN'-gum"), while the Dorset town is pronounced with a hard "g" ("GIL-ing-um"), and it is considered classically unique with its own history that extends back to royal hunting lodges and more modern industrial developments.
