The Grange School
|Type:||Day / Co-ed|
|Head's Name:||Deborah Leonard|
The Grange Senior School was founded in 1978 largely as a result of a group of committed parents asking the school's Governors to consider extended provision to the secondary age group. Our relationship with parents has thus always been important to us.
Life at the Senior School is always busy and stimulating. Whether in lessons, or through the enormous number of enrichment activities, or in the day-to-day care shown by the staff here, all pupils will find themselves challenged to bring the best of their gifts and energies to school life. They will also find that, if they do, they will have their best brought out of them and will be prepared for a rich and flourishing future.
We offer high standards of teaching (identified by a recent school-wide parental survey as being the single biggest strength of the school), unobtrusive and thoughtful care and mentoring, a great breadth of opportunities and, above all, a strong commitment to helping each child reach his or her potential. It is our aim to help every child discover the combination of strengths and talents that makes each unique, and to discover academic and wider passions that can most helpfully guide their future choices.
Ours is no academic hothouse: children thrive here because they are happy and engaged in their studies and enriched by their involvement outside the classroom. They are understood as individuals, and helped to be the best that they can be. They want to work hard and do their best; they rarely need to be made to!
