Welcome to the Grammar School!
Our aim is that all our students are happy and successful in school!
The Grammar School offers a comprehensive and academically rigorous British curriculum. It has a culturally diverse student body comprising of approximately 400 students from Years 7 to 13.
Students meet together every morning in vertical mentoring groups which allow students to mix with other students from all year groups. Teaching groups, however, comprise of students from the same year group and students in Key stage 3 learn together mainly in their teaching group.
The Grammar School building itself has 6 fully equipped science laboratories, 2 fully equipped computer laboratories and approximately twenty teaching classrooms, suited on a subject basis. There is also a sixth form study/relaxation area. On the wider campus there are two dedicated art classrooms, a dedicated music base, an extensive library facility, a sports hall, gymnasium, swimming pool, an astro-turf pitch and a café serving healthy food and drink options.
The Grammar School aims to provide a stimulating and challenging academic programme that will develop the individual’s natural curiosity and instil in each student a desire to learn.
The Grammar School has a culturally diverse student body and wants to ensure that when students leave JPGS they are confident ‘citizens of the world’ and will be able to succeed wherever they may be and be able to work with people from all walks of life.
The school aims to nurture an environment that is positive, encouraging and inclusive. Effective teaching and learning can only take place in an atmosphere where high expectations and standards of good behaviour are set as prerequisites.
Students are encouraged to focus on achieving their full social, emotional and academic potential.
As a school our aim is to help and support students to engage in responsible thinking in preparation for life as an adult and to become life-long independent learners.
