About Penistone Grammar School ALC

Penistone Grammar School

Penistone Grammar School really is a special place to work. There’s no doubt that our amazing student body of over 1,600 (increasing to 1,900 by 2022), including 300 Post 16 students, and our state-of-the-art building set in beautiful surroundings, make coming to work worthwhile. However, what really makes Penistone the school it is, is our staff. Our success as a school is directly attributable to the collaborative interaction and support between colleagues, complemented by a commitment to doing all they can for the benefit of each and every one of our students. We value the unique contribution each member of staff makes to our learning community.

We are fully committed to meeting the needs of all our students and providing them with the very best teaching and learning. Students come to us from the small town of Penistone and from the surrounding villages. We also take students from further afield and we are over-subscribed. Our intake is genuinely comprehensive although we have retained Grammar School in our name to maintain the link with our history. 

We have a number of upcoming vacancies for 2020, for more information or to visit the school see our website or contact our recruitment partner, Deborah Henderson, directly on 0114 217 1556 or

A happy school, we are at the heart of our community and provide an excellent educational experience for students from years 7 through to 13. Everything we do is driven by our core values: Aim High; Be Determined; Be Brave; Be Supportive; Be Proud and is underpinned by honesty, integrity and respect. We believe the potential our students hold in terms of their personal achievement is limitless. We will empower them to go forward, prepared for whatever challenges they face with absolute confidence, aware that they have the knowledge, skills and qualities needed to succeed. 

Ofsted report 

“Students achieve well in the sixth form because teaching is consistently at least good. They are informed particularly well of the options available to them after school… Teaching is securely good, with a growing amount that is outstanding.”
