About Us and Our Values

Our mission is simple: to transform lives as well as minds.

Wolverhampton Grammar School is an extraordinary school. You just have to step through the doors to feel a tangible warmth – a warmth created by people who embody community.

  • How do we achieve this?

    We provide an education as individual as your child, within an environment and community like no other. As one of the oldest schools in the country, we’ve been doing just that for over 500 years.

    We will give your child the best opportunity to leave our school with excellent exam results. But, what we offer, is much more.

    Our highly skilled staff help us fulfill this mission and our students go on to achieve great things. We work with students to ensure their curriculum is right for them. We can do this because of our expert staff, small class sizes, flexibility within our academic structures and because we are leaders in the use of technology – both as a teaching aid and as a way of supporting the students in our care.

    We know that a challenging education requires a supportive, caring environment as well as a blend of skills and a mind-set that embraces diversity and difference. Pastoral Care at Wolverhampton Grammar School is unique and unmatched.

    We are a busy, happy and successful community with young people, their learning, development and welfare at the heart of everything we do.
