Wolverhampton Grammar School is a school where “the quality of pupils’ academic and other achievements is excellent” and where attainment in Years 3 to 6, GCSE and A Level performance is above the national average. The inspectors also found “By the time they leave school, pupils are well equipped for their future lives. They are effective learners, keen participants, socially aware and keen to make their positive contribution to the world ahead.”
The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) went on to report that Wolverhampton Grammar School is a “community that inspires openness, trust and mutual respect”.
The School was recently inspected by the ISI as part of their programme of regular inspections required by the Department for Education. Their inspection reported on the School’s educational quality and compliance, focussing on the quality of our school’s work, academic achievements and the personal development of our students.
Schools are rated on a scale from ‘unsatisfactory’, ‘sound’, ‘good’ to ‘excellent’. Wolverhampton Grammar School was found to be ‘excellent’ in all areas.
The ISI’s work included lengthy preparation examining regulatory information provided by the school, a formal inspection in school, surveys with parents and students, as well as interviews with staff, Directors and students. After the inspection they concluded:
Their conclusions were supported by the pupil and parent questionnaires completed for the inspectors. The response rate for both was astonishing and inspectors commented that it was one of the highest student and parent response rates that they had experienced.
Kathy Crewe-Read, Head of Wolverhampton Grammar School added
“This is the highest rating we could receive and an incredible achievement for all our school community. This judgment on our approach of delivering personalised transformational education and consistently getting it right makes me so incredibly proud, this really is an extraordinary school.”
Philip Sims, Chair of the Board of Directors added
“The School has always had a first class reputation for the outstanding academic and personal achievements of its students and this judgement confirms what an incredible asset Wolverhampton Grammar School is to the city and region.”
This is the moment Kathy Crewe-Read, Head of Wolverhampton Grammar School told some of younger students the excellent news at assembly.
