Wolverhampton Grammar School provides an outstanding education for children attending the Junior School, Senior School and Sixth Form. We consistently achieve outstanding GCSE and A Level results, provide the largest range of extra-curricular activities of any independent school in the area, and continue to be the independent school of choice for parents of children from across the Wolverhampton, Shropshire and Staffordshire areas.
The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) is the body approved by the Secretary of State for the purpose of inspecting schools which are, or whose heads are, in membership of the associations which form the Independent Schools Council (ISC).
Wolverhampton Grammar School is a HMC school. Heads are elected to HMC based on the quality of their schools, which are large enough to offer wide diversity to pupils, have sixth forms and achieve high academic attainment in public examinations.
Educational Quality Inspection
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, Inspectors reported. Inspectors also reported “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.” and that Wolverhampton Grammar School is a “community that inspires openness, trust and mutual respect”.
After the inspection they concluded:
- The quality of the pupils’ academic and other achievements is Excellent
- The quality of the pupils’ personal development is Excellent
Their conclusions were supported by the pupil and parent questionnaires completed for the inspectors. Inspectors commented that it was one of the highest student and parent response rates that they had experienced.
Regulatory Compliance Inspection
Wolverhampton Grammar School is fully compliant with all statutory regulations and requirements.
The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) have inspected compliance with a number of areas from the quality of education provided; the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils; health and safety; suitability of staff; the provision of information; manner in which complaints are handled and the quality of leadership and management of the School.
Whilst the content of their written report focusses on compliance with School standards, the Inspectors observed the School with its staff and students on normal working days.
