Grammar is an unusual school. Its liberal curriculum sets it apart, as does its focus on the life of the mind. We value academic success, although we fully accept that boys mature at different rates, and that there are many indicators of success at school besides examinations. From early on, boys are encouraged to be self-sufficient, and take responsibility for what they do. We are looking for bright and engaged boys with a love of learning, a curiosity about the world and a passion to get involved in sport, music, drama, debating, chess, Cadets, art and more. If you are curious, love reading, science or maths, and want to get involved in as many things as possible, then Grammar could be the school for you.
