Headmaster’s Welcome

Welcome to Stockport Grammar School, a highly successful and friendly school providing an outstanding education for boys and girls of all backgrounds.

Co-education provides the best and most natural preparation for happiness and success in adult life.

We pay close attention to the needs of each individual student, developing their abilities, character and confidence. An exceptionally high standard of pastoral care creates a warm, caring and supportive environment, producing excellent relationships between students and with their teachers.

Small classes and outstanding teaching, by motivated and gifted staff, produce students with independent and curious minds, able to work together, to challenge ideas and to take the initiative in their learning. Students enjoy their lessons, gain excellent examination results and are well-prepared for future study.

An enormous range of co-curricular opportunities in sport, music, drama, academic societies and outdoor pursuits nurture the talents of individual students, help to produce well-rounded young people and enrich the life of our community.

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 meeting you at one of our open events or for a tour of the school.

Dr Paul Owen
