Welcome To The Handsworth Grammar School Website
I extend a warm welcome to you and your family as you visit the website of Handsworth Grammar School. Whilst plans for a new prospectus and an updated website are underway, I hope that you will accept this welcome as an alternative to the traditional welcome from the incumbent head.
It may interest you to know that I am no stranger to the West Midlands, having worked in selective schools in Birmingham, Solihull and most recently Coventry. I have been drawn back to Birmingham and the traditional Grammar School system that holds so many fond memories for me. It is a fantastic environment to be a part of, a sentiment echoed by staff and students alike, and one which I am proud to return to as Headteacher.
Handsworth Grammar School is an educational establishment that aims to make a real and significant difference to the lives of each and every child that we educate. We believe that the benefits of the School should be accessible to all students, regardless of where their talents or interests lie. The extensive opportunities available are created by a School that has acknowledged excellence in a range of areas but which is able to balance the academic, pastoral and extracurricular needs of the community with that of the individuals that form its student body. The School provides this purposeful environment with the support of staff who are talented and motivated in order to nurture the best from each child. This is achieved in an atmosphere that has at its core the strong relationships between all staff and students. At its heart Handsworth Grammar School aims to thrive on a foundation of mutual respect and honesty that together create a common direction and focus for all. Our community is a special one that we all value immensely. We all share these strong, common principles and are committed to working hard to achieve them.
We recognise that choosing the right school is a difficult decision. I would encourage you to contact us and we would be delighted to welcome you to Handsworth Grammar School so that you can experience what we have to offer first hand.
