Information for current Parents

Wolverhampton Grammar School recognises the importance of keeping all our parents up to date news about the school. The school updates parents about a range of issues in a variety of ways.

Our parents receive personal updates from staff and we have a regular schedule of School Reports and Parents’ Evenings. Parents are also always welcome and encouraged to call into school or arrange an opportunity to meet with any member of staff. The link here leads to some of our key policies and procedures. If you have any questions about any of these, or other school policy documents please contact Sue Gough, PA to the Bursar: 

Wolverhampton Grammar School parents also have unique access to their own School Parent Portal. The Firefly Parent Portal pulls together lots of resources and information about School into one place. Parents can also use the Portal to view their child’s homework tasks, book Parents’ Evening appointments, check their child’s timetable, information about academic subjects, reports and extra-curricular activities as well as where to get help and support. Parents can also choose to use the Portal to update their contact details with School too. Parents can login to the Parent Portal here.

We also deliver more general updates to parents in a variety of ways, including:

  • Direct emails and letters from Form Tutors, Heads of Year and Subject Tutors
  • Regular email updates from the Head, Kathy Crewe-Read
  • A copy of the termly school newsletter The Independent
  • If you use social media you can also receive daily updates from Twitter @WGS1512 or by following us on Facebook: Wolverhampton Grammar School Official or Instagram: Wolverhampton Grammar School.
