In August 2008, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a seven trench archaeological field evaluation at St. John’s Roman Catholic Comprehensive School, Gravesend, Kent (TQ 659 733) on behalf of Kent County Council and Kier Group PLC. The evaluation followed deskbased archaeological and development impact assessments of the site carried out for the Council, which form part of the ongoing BSF schools development programme in Kent. The evaluation revealed no evidence of significant archaeological occupation or activity. Deep deposits of made ground in two trenches may represent infilled clay quarrying areas associated with a 19th-century brick-works thought to have been situated to the south of the site. During January and February 2009 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at St John’s Roman Catholic Comprehensive School, Gravesend in Kent. Kent County Council commissioned the work in advance of works carried out by Kier Group PLC. The watching brief formed the last phase of archaeological investigations at the site during part of Wave 3 of the Kent Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme and revealed no archaeological features.
