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 1190 students with 448 in the Junior School (4-11 years) and 742 in the Senior School including 155 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 2019, 44% of GCSE candidates achieved 8-9 while at A Level 64% gained A*/A with over 80% getting into their first-choice university. In 2020 we are very pleased with our Centre Assessed Grads awarded to both GCSE and A Level students. They reflected the hard work shown by our students in a difficult period.
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 students are high, which serves to both stimulate achievement and provide reward.
We understand our chief purpose is to help produce young people who truly flourish and find fulfilment as adults. We do this by helping them to identify and develop their unique combination of strengths, talents and passions, and to challenge them to find a purpose for their lives, which such attributes can serve.
