Dedication Service for the RAF Centenary Bench
The Dedication Service for the RAF Centenary Bench will take place on Saturday 21 September 2019 at 11:00 at Penistone Grammar School. A Ceremonial Flagpole, funded by the Penistone Community, will also be erected for the event and handed over as a gift to the school.
As Principal of Penistone Grammar School, I feel very privileged and proud that the area of PGS war memorial has been chosen to situate the Royal Air Force Centenary Bench. It is an honour that the school has a link to the RAF which will inspire our students to accomplish and succeed.
All members of our community are very welcome to the event and to stay for refreshments afterwards.

Statutory Process for the Enlargement of Penistone Grammar School A letter from Barnsley MBC has recently been emailed to parents/carers regarding the Statutory Process to enlarge Penistone Grammar School.
The proposal was to enlarge Penistone Grammar School from the current capacity of 1400 pupils to 1650 pupils with effect from September 2018 (implemented on a phased basis). This will mean an extra 50 places for the year 7 intake each year from 2018 onwards. Please click on the link below to download the Barnsley MBC letter.
