Our new Infant Offer

Our brand-new Infant School offering can be found right at the heart of our successful and popular Junior School. With small class sizes, a teacher and teaching assistant per class, remodelled indoor facilities, and immediate access to our purpose-built infant playground, everything your child could need is within easy reach.

A Tried and Tested format

Everything is built on our pre-existing Junior model, even the curriculum, in which the arts, languages, sport and outdoor learning feature heavily. Similarly, the new Infants’ teaching team comprises of our current outstanding teachers. It is crucial that our youngest charges are entrusted to our proven, committed and energetic staff, who provide the exceptional level of pastoral care that our parents value so highly.

Reception, Year 1 and Year 2

A Typical School Day

Phonics, literacy and mathematics make up the bulk of the daily timetable, with plenty of room for topic, sport, swimming, art, music and German throughout the week. On top of this, Year 1 and Year 2 will have IT and RE lessons. Of course, learning shouldn’t be confined to just the classroom. Venturing outside to explore the natural world is the perfect way for children to grow in confidence and to learn new life skills. With lots of combined activities, events, and even assemblies, your Infant child will soon feel part of our very special Junior School community.

State-of-the-art Facilities

Reception and Year 1 will enjoy immediate access to the new Infant Playground through newly fitted French Doors in their classrooms. Year 2 will be positioned at the front of the Junior School building and will have the shortest of walks to reach these wonderful new facilities. The superb amenities don’t stop at a new playground, remodelled reception toilets and a new free-flow indoor play area. Your Infant child is sure to enjoy many of the aspects of our 25 acre campus, including a quiet, green outdoor learning area; a large, airy sports hall; and award-winning catering to name just a few.

Infant Playground

Opportunity for All

We firmly believe in equal opportunities at Wolverhampton Grammar School. In the Junior School, this means equality of access to all aspects of the curriculum, particularly the arts and sport. We were proud to be the first Independent School in the city to offer all sports to all genders. We’re even prouder of our girls’ football teams, one of which has had National Success in recent years.
