It is official! Penistone Grammar School is in the top 1% of A Level providers in the country according to ALPS and in the top 3.5% of A level providers according to the Department for Education. These results were the second best in the whole of South Yorkshire and were the 102nd highest in the country (out of nearly 3000 providers)! Congratulations to the class of 2018 on their outstanding achievements and thank you so much to all your parents and staff who supported them along this incredible journey.
Coupled with excellent facilities, the very best in ICT provision and a modern, state of the art environment in which students can work, relax and socialise, our Post 16 Centre is second to none. The study area inspires students to learn and aim high and when they choose to relax there is a superb social area with games room and dining facilities.
Students who join us from other schools will find that they settle in very quickly and go on to have a successful and fulfilling experience with us.
Academic provision is of the highest quality combined with first class support to ensure that students stay focused and have the confidence to aim high. In the current climate it is essential to provide the very best support and guidance for students when considering applications to universities. Last year over 97% of students who applied gained places at their preferred institutions with 63% gaining places at prestigious Russell Group universities.
Above all we want our students to enjoy their post-16 experience at PGS and remember their time with us for the rest of their lives.
