The successful tenderer will be required to provide cleaning services at Maidstone Grammar School for Girls.

Maidstone Grammar School for Girls (MGGS) in Maidstone, Kent, was founded in 1888. It is a selective, foundation school for girls between 11-16, with a mixed Sixth Form. Judged by Ofsted as ‘outstanding’, it enjoys a reputation as one of the finest grammar schools in Kent, fostering academic distinction, intellectual curiosity, creativity and courage in our students. MGGS is committed to encouraging healthy eating and meeting the specific needs of school girls.

The School moved to the existing site in 1938; buildings vary significantly from a 1930s brick build, ‘temporary’ 1950s buildings, a ROSLA annex and two new blocks completed in the last 5 years.

The School is working to further increase the number of new builds, with the 1950s ‘temporary’ buildings next to be replaced. The School wants all students to feel proud of the environment in which they work.
