Junior School and Nursery Staff

Junior School Headmaster outside with pupils

Here at Stockport Grammar School our staff are passionate, highly qualified, dynamic and enthusiastic about helping our pupils reach their full potential. By not allowing class sizes to become too large, our teachers are able to properly get to know each child, and to help them with their individual needs.

The teaching does not stop outside of the classroom either, with all staff involved in running clubs, competitions and co-curricular events which help children find new interests and develop new skills within the wide range of intellectual, sporting, musical and artistic activities.

All details are correct as of April 2024.
