Wolverhampton Grammar School is extraordinary. Founded in 1512, it’s one of the oldest schools in the country. The award-winning school is within easy access of the wider West Midlands, Staffordshire and Shropshire, thanks to flexible school bus links.
If you’ve never visited the stunning 25 acre campus, you can register at any time for a virtual open event, individual tour or open day. Simply visit www.wgs.org.uk to register for events across the Summer and Autumn, including the annual open day on Saturday 10th October. Just like the School’s approach to education, they are tailored specifically for you with flexible opportunities to join in and meet staff and students.
The events include a guided, virtual tour as well as an opportunity to hear from teaching and specialist staff about the school’s curriculum, how it uses technology, life in the Junior and Senior Schools and Sixth Form and the reading and library services. You can also learn about the exceptional extra-curricular programme.
Children at Wolverhampton Grammar School receive pastoral care like nowhere else – that’s because happy children do well, thrive, and leave the school with excellent exam results and the confidence to embrace whatever opportunities come their way.
Your child will never feel alone, the school promises. Assistant Head of Pastoral Care Claudine Jones leads a team of staff to support and work with families to ensure every child gets the care and individual attention that they need. Support includes a dedicated, expert pastoral team, school counsellor and annual adolescent mental health tracking using the latest digital tools.
The academic achievements of the students speak for themselves. All teachers are experts in their own academic disciplines, trained and experienced professionals who love their subjects as much as they enjoy teaching students.
