At Stafford Grammar School we offer the best of both worlds: a school with outstanding academic success that feels like a family. Our pupils thrive in our happy and caring environment, where every pupil is known as an individual.
Our success in built on the highest quality teaching and learning which is supported by the excellent rapport between teachers and pupils. Whilst we pride ourselves on being rated as one of the top schools in Staffordshire in Government league tables, the real spirit of Stafford Grammar School is to be found in the smiling faces, laughter and sense of fun that pupils and teachers experience every day.
In our latest examination results, 68% of all GCSEs were A* or A grades, with other one third being at the top A* grade. At A level 75% of grades were A*-B with 50% being A or A* grades. Our school has become established as a centre of excellence at all levels and each year our Sixth Form students gain admission to the top universities. Academic excellence is only one part of the Stafford Grammar School success story. We believe in encouraging participation and excellence in all areas, in and outside the classroom.
A wide variety of sports are available and our teams have an enviable record of success, winning local, county, regional and national competitions. Our pupils are continually inspired to excel in sport by others who have gone on to achieve sporting success at national level in sports as diverse as swimming, football, rugby, cricket, athletics, archery and ice hockey as well as our Youth Commonwealth gold medallist in javelin.
For young people who enjoy the performing arts, Stafford Grammar School is the place to be. With the opportunity to join choirs, vocal groups, Concert Band, Big Band, Orchestra and other ensembles, there really is something for everyone. Music performances are held regularly in school and our music ensembles and choirs have recently performed in the Birmingham Symphony Hall and the Royal Albert Hall. Our award winning Concert Band toured in Prague this summer, following highly successful tours in Spain, France and Italy. Drama continues to thrive and our school musicals are performed to sell-out audiences.
Over the last few years, musical theatre productions of Annie, Beauty and the Beast, Les Miserables, West Side Story, Into the Woods and Fame have been produced to an exceptional standard and received acclaim in the local press. The SGS LAMDA acting group took 'Oh Gumtree', an original play, to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2015 and received rave reviews. The real success of these productions is to be found in the community spirit and teamwork involved.
