Our Approach

The Junior School years mark a crucial period in a child’s development. During this time a child establishes the foundations for future learning; they begin to form firm friendships and become more independent and curious about the world around them. These are also years of fun and enjoyment as a child develops strengths and new interests.

Wolverhampton Grammar Junior School provides wrap around care for your child. Our school is sited at the heart of Wolverhampton Grammar School, providing safe, unique access to facilities, sport opportunities and teaching expertise.

The average class size in the junior school is currently 20 pupils (considerably smaller than the national average) and for some year groups we reduce set sizes further still by introducing additional teachers to core subjects such as Maths and English.​ We find that this provides the right balance between offering all the advantages of individual attention and interactions between pupils and teachers, with being large enough to ensure there is enough interaction between pupils. Small classes have also been found to lead to a small increase in the number of years a student spends in post-compulsory education.

Sport and music play a key part in everyday school life and no other local independent or state school can offer the range of extra-curricular activities, or the standard of drama and arts facilities on offer at Wolverhampton Grammar Junior School.

Our focus on developing the whole child enables us to prepare them for their transition to Senior School. Our Year 6 students are offered direct entry into the Senior School. Free from the pressures of SATs or exam preparation, their curriculum offers both creativity and academic challenge; a perfect introduction to the next stage of their education.

Most of all, our Junior School is a happy place, full of fun and designed to bring out the best in your child.
