It is a privilege to lead The Grange School and be a part of the wonderful community which it serves. We are on a journey of rapid school improvement  - recognised by Ofsted which awarded us a ‘good’ in every category when we were inspected under the challenging new framework in 2022 - and we are committed to ensuring we provide the very best education for every single one of our students.

The Grange School is proud to be a small, community school, which means students and staff across different subjects and year groups are able to form unique relationships and every child is known and understood as an individual.  Our links with Twynham School through the Twynham Learning Trust of which we are proud to be a part of, mean that our students can enjoy access to the sort of curriculum offer, extra-curricular activities and opportunities and staff expertise associated with a much larger organisation. In other words, we have the best of both.

We are proud to be a fully-inclusive school in which all young people can thrive and become the best version of themselves that they can be. I am a firm believer in the power of education to change individuals’ lives, and that all children, irrespective of background or ability deserve the same opportunities that will enable them to enter the world with all the doors open to them and to fulfil whatever their ambitions are.

Please do browse our website which will hopefully give you a sense of what a special place The Grange School is.  We are always happy to accept visitors and please do get in touch with myself if you have any questions.
