Extra & Co-curricular

Providing an exciting and fulfilling life outside of the classroom is key to a child’s physical, mental and social wellbeing, and is something we pride ourselves on offering at Wolverhampton Grammar School.

With over 100 Extra and Co-curricular activities, societies, clubs, academic workshops, trips and expeditions and sport tours, there really is something to suit all abilities and interests. Students can also be responsible for setting up their own clubs or societies at any time. The range of activities on offer is extremely diverse, with the likes of Political Forum, Climbing Clubs, Duke of Edinburgh Award, Computer Science Club to even a Gardening Club, the list is endless!

Our students can also hold exhibitions in our purpose-built Viner Gallery and even perform their productions in our industry standard Hutton Theatre.

Our students can also take part in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (Bronze, Silver and Gold levels); Coast 2 Coast Charity Run; guest speakers during assemblies, as well as Art Lectures every month in the Senior School; Medical Society Guest lectures throughout the year at lunchtimes for Year 11 and Sixth Form; and opportunities to get involved at School Open Days and Discovery Days
