Wisbech Grammar School is a co-educational independent day school in Wisbech, Isle of Ely, Cambridgeshire. Founded by the Guild of the Holy Trinity in 1379, it is one of the oldest schools in the UK. [1]


In the Prep department (also known as Magdalene House), the curriculum is designed to fully correspond with the school’s efforts to produce confident and able learners. It includes the following subject areas: mathematics, English, MFL, PE, music, science and humanities.


The extensive array of co-curricular clubs is aimed at preparing children for a future of success, equipping them with skills for life and maximising the range of their interests and passions. Everything from athletics, astronomy and hockey to dance, cricket and young engineers is currently on offer.


The most recent ISI report for Wisbech Grammar determined that the school meets all compliance criteria, including the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils. Centering its ethos on a centuries-old tradition of academic excellence, the school allows children to discover their purpose and ‘unlock their potential’ by learning beyond the confines of the classroom while benefitting from the vigour pervading the school’s welcoming community.
