Stockport Grammar School is a co-ed independent day school in Cheshire. The second oldest school in the North of England, it has educated many notable alumni, including historians, professors, journalists and engineers. [1]


In the Junior School, great emphasis is placed on the teaching of English, mathematics and science, although equally vigorous provision is available for a number of other subject areas. To complement the broad offering, facilities are modern and spacious, accelerating pupils’ learning in parallel with their intellectual versatility.


The selection of co-curriculars is just as impressive, engaging the cohort as they expand their potential and forge lasting friendships. Cricket, percussion, drama, MUN, LAMDA, orchestra, swimming and archery are some of its most popular features. Stockport Grammar is also a designated Eco School, minimising children’s environmental impact while ensuring that the learning atmosphere is healthy and safe. [2


Challenging and supporting pupils, the school offers an inspiring ethos that ensures successful outcomes across a multitude of areas. Staff aim to maximise pupils’ enthusiasm for learning while simultaneously promoting respect of differences, encouraging a thorough exploration of society’s characteristics as crucial to self-discovery.
