I am delighted to welcome you to the website of Wallington County Grammar School, one of the best schools in the country. What makes us great is that, at our core, we care very deeply about our students, both past and present. We are renowned for the quality of our pastoral work, warmly supporting our pupils to become happy, confident individuals equipped with the qualifications, skills and attributes to succeed in a globalised world.
Being a boys selective school founded in 1927 that welcomes girls into the Sixth Form, we work within the Folio Education Trust, blending the best of tradition with innovation to engage and inspire our students to be the very best they can be. Because of this our students make progress within the top 2% of all secondary schools in the country at GCSE and go on to gain places at the world’s top universities.
The school was rated as 'outstanding' in all categories by Ofsted in 2017 which is a rare achievement of which we are extremely proud. This success is born from our core values of self-discipline, endeavour and excellence: being self-disciplined enough to always show deep compassion and respect for all members of our community; endeavouring to always approach our work with passion and enthusiasm, never being afraid of failure or mistakes but embracing them to learn from and better ourselves; reaching excellence, not just in the classroom, but as well-rounded individuals who succeed in many aspects of life be they sporting, artistic, intellectual or social. We tailor our curriculum to ensure students are nurtured as well rounded individuals, excelling in core subjects like mathematics, English and the sciences but who are also deeply knowledgeable about the arts and humanities. Our co-curriculum further enhances our students’ character, forging outstanding sportsmen through our superb coaching programme and creating individuals who are passionate about representing their club or society, house, year group and school.
Above all, we celebrate our incredible students through a culture of praise and recognition to make sure they leave us with the conviction that they can achieve anything they put their minds to.
