Welcome to Grosvenor Grammar

We are delighted that you are interested in finding out about Grosvenor Grammar School.

This co-educational, inter-denominational Grammar School, with an increasingly multi-cultural population and outlook, has a caring ethos, friendly pupils and a dedicated staff of 72 full-time teachers, working to ensure that our young people achieve the highest standards.  We prize academic excellence for all, whilst supporting the development of the whole person.

 

This has been a particularly exciting year for the school as we moved into the new building in April 2010.  Your son/daughter will, therefore, be able to enjoy and benefit from the new, world-class facilities, including three sand based rugby pitches, two synthetic hockey pitches, three synthetic cricket wickets, a 400m running track, Fitness Suite, Sports Hall, Lecture Dance Studio, purpose built Art Suite, Drama Studio, Home Economics Suite, Music Suite, Careers Suite and Sixth Form Centre
