The Good Schools Guide
Academic excellence at WGS
All of our teachers are experts in their own academic disciplines, trained and experienced professionals who love their subjects as much as they enjoy teaching our students. The lessons are lively and challenging, and knowledge here is treasured, opening up minds to a love of learning.
Small class sizes and space for individual tuition enables our teachers to get to know your child. WGS students feel positive and fulfilled because they enjoy their lessons and they relish intellectual challenge. Students from Wolverhampton Grammar School consistently do well in examinations across our extensive range of subjects, achieving stellar exam results at GCSE and A Level.
Art, music and drama to fuel our creativity
From the moment your child first joins us, be that in the Juniors, Seniors, or Sixth Form, there will be multiple opportunities to participate in the Arts at WGS.
Junior School students enjoy weekly Art lessons and Music is taught by a subject specialist from Reception upwards, with access to the Music block and recital rooms from Year 4. Across the School, extra-curricular activities include 1:1 instrumental lessons and group speech and drama, with impressive grades achieved in LAMDA examinations.
The joy of treading the boards is experienced by all – from infant nativities and school plays in the Junior School to Dance Shows and Lower and Senior School productions in our on-site Hutton Theatre. Also housed within the Hutton building is the Art Studio, Mac Suite for graphic design and Viner Art Gallery, all inspiring facilities that spark creativity.
Music is the heartbeat of the School and individual lessons are offered from Year 2 upwards. Music ensembles and choirs are open to all and regular performance opportunities and music tours help to grow confidence and showcase talent.
