As the Principal, I feel privileged to lead our school at a time when our students are excelling in all key stages. Penistone Grammar School continued the trend of strong results, with over one-third of students achieving the top grades (3 or more Grade 9 to 7) The results are an indicator of how the school continues to provide a first-class educational experience, with the following students making progress that is more than double that of their peers nationally. At Post 16 in 2019 Penistone Grammar School was again in the top 10% of A Level providers in the country according to ALPS. This is the third year in a row in which we have been in the top 10% an outstanding achievement from students and staff. Congratulations to the class of 2019 on their outstanding achievements and thank you so much to all your parents and staff who supported them along this incredible journey.
We have a committed and talented staff who always focus on developing the very best practice so that our first class learning facilities and ICT resources are optimised. Students and members of the wider community benefit from state of the art sports facilities; a professional drama studio; and fully equipped catering suite to name but a few of the specialist areas within the school. Of course, education is much more than examination results and our core values which were created by our students exemplify what Penistone Grammar School is all about.
Inspiring Aspiration and Excellence
We are proud of our rich tradition of excellence, striving to achieve the highest standards and to be at the heart of our community. Innovative and supportive, we bravely lead the way in delivering an educational experience that enables our students to be well rounded, confident individuals. Our core values were developed by our students and lie at the heart of all that we do.
The most important part of any school is the quality of relationships. Above all, Penistone is a happy school with a supportive and welcoming environment for all students. As a result young people grow in confidence and are able to participate in the wide range of opportunities available at Penistone. We encourage our students to follow their interests, develop new skills and most importantly, fully enjoy all aspects of school life
