About The Grange School
The Grange School has been one of the great success stories of independent education over the past forty years. The school was founded in 1933 as a Kindergarten and Preparatory School. In 1977, the Governors took the major step of developing secondary education and since 1978 the school has grown steadily and developed an outstanding academic reputation. Today, The Grange has a total enrolment of 1197 students with 436 in the Junior School (4-11 years) and 761 in the Senior School including 168 in a thriving Sixth Form. It is consistently the best performing school in Cheshire and undoubtedly among the very best independent co-educational day schools in the country.
Our academic results speak for themselves, as we are consistently placed uppermost in the national independent school tables. In the last public examinations in 2019, 56.4% of GCSE candidates achieved 8-9 while at A Level 80.5% gained A*/A with over 88.5% getting into their first-choice university. In 2020 and 2021 we are very pleased with our teacher Assessed Grades awarded to both GCSE and A Level students. These are the last set of results before centre and teacher assessed grades were introduced.
More importantly we are a very happy school. The relationship between staff and students is exceptional; although very busy and, at times, pressurised, it is a pleasure to work and study in such a friendly environment. Expectations of teachers and pupils are high, but this serves both to stimulate achievement and provide reward.
We understand our chief purpose to be to help produce young people who truly flourish and find fulfilment as adults. We try to do this by helping them to identify and develop their unique combination of strengths, talents and passions, whilst also challenging them to find a pathway for their futures which such attributes can serve.
