About Wilmington Grammar School for Boys

Welcome to Wilmington Grammar School for Boys where we offer an  exceptional education for boys aged 11- 16 and an extensive post 16  programme which is co-educational for students in the sixth form. 

Our aim is to produce well-rounded  individuals with a passion for learning and an enthusiasm for personal  development. Results are consistently of a high standard with the  majority of students going on to study in some of the most prestigious  universities, whilst a minority opt for the Higher Level Apprenticeship  programme as an alternative stepping stone to career success.

Our motto  is ‘forward thinking, traditional values’ and we strive to ensure that  the best of the past is harnessed, developed and adapted to meet the  changing requirements of the competitive, global world in which we now  operate.

At WGSB, we recognise that our students  need to be reflective and embrace challenges, to learn from mistakes and  develop the resilience to seek continual improvement. This growth  approach can lead to a happy and fulfilling school life and a  willingness to accept change. It nurtures learners who value critique,  support each other and feel empowered to drive their own learning.

The school has an Engineering specialism  and has developed some exciting links with business sponsors to ensure  the curriculum is current and relevant to the rapidly changing needs of  the workplace.  Visits from alumnae help to ensure our students benefit  from aspirational role models and can learn about the various routes and  pathways available to them.

Consistently oversubscribed, the school  has grown over the past few years and now has over 900 students.  Although the website and prospectus can give you a hint of our ethos,  there is no substitute for a personal visit. You are welcome to attend  one of our open events to discover the teaching quality, fun,  friendship, hard work and determination to succeed which characterises  WGSB.

Best wishes,

Mr Charlie Guthrie
Head Teacher
