School Profile

Wolverhampton Grammar School was founded in 1512 by Sir Stephen Jenyns. Born in Wolverhampton, Jenyns made a fortune in London, and was twice elected Master of the Merchant Taylors\' Company, one of the City\'s great livery companies with whom the school still enjoys close relations.

At Wolverhampton Grammar School we demand a great deal from our students, but then then they in turn demand much from their teachers. And we are proud that our teachers are not afraid to engage with their students, to explore and go beyond the traditional confines of each subject in order to develop that sense of true understanding. We are fortunate that WGS teachers are not only specialists in their subject areas, but are just as passionate about learning as their students.

WGS is a selective, coeducational; socially diverse day school and its curriculum offers a broad, balanced syllabus to students with access to linguistic, mathematical, scientific, technological, social, physical and creative areas.

Work in subjects often goes well beyond what is required in examinations, because as a school we want to provide our students with the knowledge and skills to take their studies further, not simply to pass exams.
