Introduction

 

Wolverhampton Grammar School is a co-educational independent school in West Midlands. Founded as an all-boys school in 1512 by Sir Stephen Jenyns, a master of the ancient guild of Merchant Taylors and Lord Mayor of London in the year of Henry VIII’s coronation, the school began admitting girls in 1984.

 

In Senior School, pupils take lessons in a range of disciplines such as Arts, Science, Humanities, Sports and Social Sciences, coupled with PSHE and MFL.

 

Via over 100 clubs, societies and workshops, the school ensures that pupils’ individual interests are met. Ranging from Fundraising Committee, Craft Club, Chess Club, Debating Club and Archaeology Club to Book Club, Student Parliament, Political Forum, History Society and Astronomy Club, Wolverhampton Grammar’s extra-curricular programme maximises its pupils’ skills and abilities.

 

Aiming to develop each student’s confidence, the school’s highly skilled staff complements the vibrant community underpinned by openness, trust and mutual respect. Pupils at Wolverhampton Grammar School matter, their voice is heard and they are taken seriously, hence they approach adulthood with key skills and ambitious aspirations for the future.
