Award-winning education

The independent day school has expanded its provision to incorporate Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. It is a fully all-through school, providing the opportunity for children of all school ages (4-18) to join a unique community and experience its award-winning approach to education.

Means-tested bursaries and scholarships are available for exceptional and deserving applicants to the Senior and Sixth Form.

First priority is the happiness of your child

Children at Wolverhampton Grammar School receive superb pastoral care because happy children do well, thrive, and leave with excellent exam results and the confidence to embrace whatever opportunities come their way.

“Your child will never feel alone at Wolverhampton Grammar School,” says Assistant Head in charge of Pastoral Care, Claudine Jones, who leads a team of staff that support and work with families. Support includes a dedicated, expert pastoral team, school counsellor and annual adolescent mental health tracking using the latest digital tools.

Academic excellence

The staff are totally committed to providing the best teaching and learning experience – something that continued in lockdown, thanks to high expertise in online delivery. There is a wide range of subjects, from sciences to humanities, creative arts to languages.

Students grow up to be confident, inquisitive and independent-minded, and their academic achievements speak for themselves. Despite the pressures of the pandemic, students were awarded stellar results at GCSE and A Level. Sixth Form students are also able to study towards Cambridge Technical and BTEC awards in a range of subjects.
