Loughborough Grammar School – a day and boarding school for boys aged 10 – 18
Founded in 1495, Loughborough Grammar School is one of the oldest in the country, educating over 1,000 boys – including 70 boarders – from age 10 to 18. In 1852 the School moved from the town centre to its present spacious and attractive site at the heart of which is a handsome Victorian college quadrangle. Modern developments include an Art and Design Centre, Refectory, English School and Theatre and Modern Languages complex, and the Science Park – comprising a new Chemistry building, a refurbished and enlarged Biology building and totally refurbished Physics and Mathematics buildings – has recently been completed to provide outstanding facilities in these subjects.
The School has a strong pastoral care structure and a vibrant house system, is exceptionally well equipped, has extensive playing fields and a very strong sporting tradition. The curriculum followed is wide and flexible, combining traditional “harder” A level subjects, as the basis for Sixth Form study, with the latest tablet technology in support of modern teaching and learning methods. In recent years, 90% of leavers have gained entry to Russell Group or equivalent universities and 15% have gained places at Oxbridge Colleges. The Grammar School is attached to its Christian background, welcomes boys of all faiths and is proud of its record of inclusion; we view education in the widest sense as being a balance of academic, social, spiritual and physical development.
