Headmaster’s welcome

The senior school headmaster is
Mr Andrew Chicken

Welcome to Stockport Grammar School.

I hope that this website will give you a strong impression of the varied programme of academic, cultural, sporting and co-curricular activities open to every girl and boy here.

We are committed to making the process of learning stimulating and enjoyable, providing high quality teaching and pastoral care to support and foster individual needs, talents and aptitudes.

The school has been fully co-educational since 1980 and we believe that this provides the best and most natural preparation for happiness and success in adult life. Boys and girls work together well and gain much from sharing different approaches to learning and problem solving.

Founded in 1487, we have a long and distinguished history, but we look to the future and seek to ensure that we equip all our students to face the changes and challenges ahead with drive, enthusiasm and consideration for others.

I look forward to welcoming you to one of our open events or a tour of the school.

Mr Andrew Chicken
Headmaster
