An “all-round” education and academic excellence – Woodhouse Grove is proof that both can flourish under one roof.

The Grove is well known for its ability to produce well-rounded, go-getting, entrepreneurial young people. The school’s sporting heritage and success is firmly established – and it’s performing arts offering second to none. Combine this co-curricular pedigree with a strong academic ethos, as explained by Deputy Head Ed Wright, and it’s win-win for parents and pupils.

“We see learning and academic success as a collaborative effort between the teacher and student. Every member of staff works incredibly hard to get to know their individual students – to understand their drives and motivations, how they learn and what they want to achieve.”

Grovian values are instilled in pupils from the start of their Grovian journey and include being kind and generous, committed and resilient, enterprising and resourceful.

To be a “Grovian” is something that benefits pupils long after they leave the school gates for the last time. The school’s alumni – or “Old Grovians” – form a close, altruistic network across a huge variety of fields – from Red Arrows Team Leader to Engineer; from Chief Executive to the West End.
