“On visiting for the first time, our immediate impression was of a school where pupils showed a real sense of purpose and where they were clearly enjoying their lessons and activities.”
This comment, by parents looking for a school, is typical of the feedback we are delighted to receive.
At Wisbech Grammar School we are proud of our past but focus on the future. We believe that educational development is not simply confined to the classroom or laboratory, but can be found in the drama studio, sports fields and music rooms. We dare to go beyond the narrow confines of exam specifications, giving an all-round educational experience.
The School has a fantastically talented teaching staff who develop a strong rapport with pupils, better enabling them to negotiate their own individual learning pathway.
The facilities on our 34-acre site are excellent. Recent buildings include the Alan Salmon Hall (an assembly and performance space for our Preparatory School), an extension to our Sports Hall and the Dwight Centre for Performing Arts and English and our Refectory, Skelton Hall, opened in 2015. Our newest facilities include state of the art netball courts and purpose-built performing art and dance studio where we have partnered with Studio 19, a vibrant dance and fitness company from King's Lynn. This fantastic new facility will provide the very best for our pupils and the wider community as Studio 19 have scheduled a full timetable of evening sessions to suit every taste.
The pages which follow give you a flavour of the School’s breadth of provision in the classroom as well as the wide range of sporting and cultural activities and the extensive variety of visits and foreign exchange trips. They demonstrate the support and encouragement we offer our pupils to develop life-long skills which will allow them to deal with the demands of many different situations both now and later in life.
To really experience all that is inspiring about Wisbech Grammar School, we encourage you to visit when we are in session. Please contact the Admissions Team to arrange a tour to meet both staff and pupils, or view the dates of our forthcoming Open Events.
I look forward to hearing from you.
