Expansion of Wolverhampton Grammar School

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.

Dan Peters, Head of Wolverhampton Grammar Junior School commented: “We are so excited that children will now be able to join us at the very start of their educational journey. Opening our doors to children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 from September means that we can ensure our pupils make the very best progress from the word go.”

James Sage, Chairman of the Board of Directors for Wolverhampton Grammar School, added: “We are delighted to have been given the approval by the Department for Education to expand our education provision to children aged 4-18. High-quality teaching, devoted staff, small class sizes and our caring ethos in the Junior School allow our young children the opportunity to thrive and reach their full potential.”

Wolverhampton Grammar School provides an outstanding education for children attending the Junior School, Senior School and Sixth Form. Constantly achieving outstanding GCSE and A Level results, providing the largest range of extra-curricular activities of any independent school in the area, and continuing to be the independent school of choice for parents of children from across the Wolverhampton, Shropshire, Staffordshire and wider West Midlands.
