Welcome Message From Our Headteacher

Welcome to Wirral Grammar School for Girls.

We have been a Grammar School educating girls aged 11-19 since 1931 and now have just over 1,000 pupils, 300 of them in the sixth form. In August 2011 we became an Academy.

Our most recent OFSTED report (January 2008) judged us to be an outstanding school in all areas. Ofsted inspectors commented:

  • “Students’ personal development is outstanding. During their time at the school girls develop into confident, caring and responsible young adults who are very well prepared for the next stage in education and the world of work.”
  •  “Standards are very high and students make excellent progress.”
  • “Students’ achievement is excellent as a result of outstanding teaching.”
  • “Behaviour is exemplary and attitudes towards learning are excellent.”
  • “Relationships throughout the school are outstanding and there is an atmosphere of mutual respect where achievements, both academic and personal, are celebrated.” Continue reading

Superb GCSE results

Another top day for the school – 64% of all results were at A* or A, and 93% at A*-B. Our girls are amazing!

Mrs Cogan said “The results show the high standard of teaching and learning and with the constant support of the parents, staff and governors we have developed a culture of high attainment that everyone aspires to. Last week our A level results were fantastic. Our GCSE results today are also outstanding and are a true reflection of the hard work that all our pupils consistently deliver.”

Amazing A Level Results

Yet again our girls have achieved amazing A level results. 100% of results were passes, with 42% at A*-A and 74% at A*-B.

Mrs Cogan says:

“I am thrilled that today has gone so well. Now we have to look towards next year to maintain this success and support all our girls individually. Offering an individual education to each student and sound careers advice is the key to a bright future. “I am extremely proud of the achievements of all the girls. It is a true testament to the hard work and dedication of all the pupils, staff and parents.”

Claire House

Our school has always had a strong, committed relationship with Claire House – Year 7 have raised £6562 for their work – well done girls! Due to this huge amount they have raised enough money to be able to ‘Pay for a day’. This is where Claire House will allow the girls to pick a day in the year where they will pay for the running of the hospice. This day will be dedicated to them and the girls will then be shown what has been done in that day when a representative will come back into school and hold an assembly for them. Please support their work:
