Stafford Preparatory School and Stafford Grammar School

Stafford Grammar School and Stafford Preparatory School offer an exceptional education with an outstanding level of pastoral care, providing the encouragement and support necessary to enable every individual to fulfil his or her potential. We believe that everyone can be successful and our ethos of traditional values aims to teach our pupils the value of hard work and discipline within a happy and caring environment.
The School has built a formidable academic reputation and is now an established centre of excellence at all levels including admission to top universities.  In summer 2014, 60% of GCSE results were A*/A; 72% of A level results were A*-B grades. The School is always rated as one of the top schools in Staffordshire in the Government league tables published annually.
A wide variety of sports is taught at Stafford Grammar School. Our teams have an enviable record of competitive success, winning local, county, regional and national competitions and individuals regularly secure places in county teams. Sporting excellence at Stafford Grammar School is also demonstrated by individuals achieving success in several sports at national level such as in swimming, athletics and football.
Our students excel at the Duke of Edinburgh's Award, each year achieving more Silver and Gold Awards than all the other schools in the area.
Music performance is exceptional with opportunities to contribute to the concert band, big band, choirs, instrumental groups and orchestra. Music concerts are held regularly at school and at various local venues including a recent performance at the Birmingham Symphony Hall. This summer our concert band will be touring in Spain following very successful tours in France and Italy.
The Preparatory School educates children between the ages of 4 and 11 in the grounds of Stafford Grammar School. Lessons are taught principally by specialist primary teachers, with Stafford Grammar School staff teaching subjects such as science, design technology, music, ICT and P.E. to the key stage 2 pupils.
Activity beyond the classroom is plentiful – competitive sport, a wide variety of music and outdoor education, all complemented by clubs and educational visits which enrich the curriculum.
Our aim is to give our pupils an exciting and challenging education which fosters an enthusiasm for learning and prepares them for further education and employment in the best possible way.

Parents and pupils are encouraged to visit Stafford Grammar School or Stafford Preparatory School by prior appointment on any school day.
