Headmaster’s welcome

Welcome to Stockport Grammar Junior School, providing a warm and inviting atmosphere where children make friends with ease, enjoy their learning and develop confidence.

This website will provide you with a flavour of our school but it is impossible to describe all the things which make it special. I hope that you will want to come and see us in action for yourself and to meet some of our happy and enthusiastic children and hear about their many achievements across such a wide variety of activities.

School is about trying things, finding things out, learning both in and out of the classroom. We expect a lot of our pupils and we encourage them to make the most of the wide range of opportunities on offer. We want them to grow up with confidence and an enthusiasm for learning, to enjoy success with humility, to strive for high standards in everything they do without fear of failure and without feeling under undue pressure. We want them to develop consideration for others and to learn respect both for themselves and for those around them and, above all, to be happy.

Academic results are high but it is also important to us that we provide a broad curriculum and there are many opportunities for the children to begin to explore the wider world around them. Infant and junior classes regularly visit places of interest and we frequently welcome into our school local artists, theatre groups and other visitors who help to vary and enrich the education on offer. We also provide a whole range of opportunities in music and in drama and, in a typical week, many children will represent the school in various sports and participate in inter-house competitions.

Please contact my Secretary, Beverley Cheyne, on 0161 419 2405 to make an appointment and I will be delighted to show you around our school.

Mr Tim Wheeler
