Meet the Head of the Junior School

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.

What is so unique about the Junior School?

Quite simply, it is a caring family environment, situated right at the heart of Wolverhampton Grammar School. Our Junior School is the best place for your child to unearth new talent, grow in confidence and discover skills that they didn’t know they had.

The Junior School years are full of fun and enjoyment as a child develops strengths and new interests. Young children thrive when they feel valued and secure in their surroundings. That’s why Year 3 and 4 children are taught the majority of their lessons by their class teacher.

As children progress into Years 5 and 6, confidence is nurtured further. Children explore the wider school campus. enjoying some lessons with subject specialists from the Senior School.

Our Year 6 students (known as Big 6) are offered direct entry into the Senior School. Free from the pressures of 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.
