Expansion of Wolverhampton Grammar School

26 April 2021

Wolverhampton Grammar School is proud to announce the expansion of its Junior School to incorporate Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 from September 2021. The wonderful news means that Wolverhampton Grammar School will now become a true all-through school, providing the opportunity for children of all school ages (4-18) to join a truly unique community and experience the school's award-winning approach to education.

The city’s leading independent school recently received full approval from the Department for Education to widen the age range of the school, following a rigorous review of suitability by the Independent Schools Inspectorate. The new provision will benefit from remodelled classrooms featuring an inside-outside learning space as well as a purpose-built, beautifully landscaped infant playground within the school’s existing 25-acre campus.
