Wirral Grammar School for Girls

Educating Girls since 1931

Wirral Grammar School for Girls

We have been a Grammar School educating girls aged 11-19 since 1931 and now have just over 1,000 pupils, 300 of them in the sixth form. In August 2011 we became an Academy.

Our most recent OFSTED report (January 2008) judged us to be an outstanding school in all areas. Ofsted inspectors commented:

wirralgrammarschoolforgirls_img1■ “Students’ personal development is outstanding. During their time at the school girls develop into confident, caring and responsible young adults who are very well prepared for the next stage in education and the world of work.”

■  “Standards are very high and students make excellent progress.”

■ “Students’ achievement is excellent as a result of outstanding teaching.”

■ “Behaviour is exemplary and attitudes towards learning are excellent.”

■ “Relationships throughout the school are outstanding and there is an atmosphere of mutual respect where achievements, both academic and personal, are celebrated.”

Our results are consistently high, and well above the national average with 98% – 100% of pupils achieving at least 5 grade A* – C GCSE passes year on year and pupils achieve excellent ‘A’ Level results.

The school has topped local and national league tables for the past five years. The school is proud of the varied clubs and societies that we provide. We have highly successful sports teams, orchestras, and choirs. Many subject departments organise visits both locally and abroad. Girls support many charities and there are thriving links with local businesses and the community.

You will find here a school which is not only achieving outstanding academic results but also where there is a busy, lively buzz of activity and learning. Our well-qualified and dedicated staff understands the needs and potential of girls as they grow from childhood through their teenage years. We have always fostered traditional values, notably self-discipline, community spirit and thoughtfulness for others.

We have the most up-to-date resources and facilities to prepare our students for life as adults in the twenty-first century. We are a Specialist Language College, a Humanities College and a Science College and are delighted we have been recognised as a Gold Sportsmark School. We are affiliated to the Specialist Schools’ Trust and have gained International Schools Award status. In addition we have also gained the Schools Inclusion Award.

Finally, we have benefited from extensive site development through an £11 million Private Finance Initiative over the past five years.
