Welcome to Loughborough Grammar School
I’d like to offer you a very warm welcome to Loughborough Grammar School - a vibrant school for ambitious boys who like to be busy and fulfilled. Academic achievement will always be our central focus, but we deliver an all-round first class education where an extraordinary range of opportunities ensures that each boy can learn where he is in his element.
During their journey through the School, they have unparalleled opportunities to develop their passions and skills, so that they get to know themselves and acquire the emotional intelligence needed to thrive. Visitors to the School often remark on how the boys they have met are ‘confident without ever appearing arrogant’. This is what sets them and us apart.
Firstly, we know how to teach boys. Our teaching is focused on experiential learning where boys deepen their knowledge by doing. At the Grammar School however, the division between the academic and the extra-curricular is far from absolute, as there are so many opportunities for learning that occur outside the classroom. Everywhere you look, you discover a school bursting with activity, where boys have huge respect for the varied talents of their peers and learn as much outside the classroom as within. It is this happy fusion of work and play that is our implicit hallmark.
Helping boys to become GREAT Men
We have always believed that an education is about so much more than what is learned in the classroom and our GREAT Men initiative is drawing together our whole community to talk meaningfully about masculinity.
In an era when it can be tough to be a young man, we lead our boys through the maze of adolescence to become good role models who show integrity and judgement. We develop boys’ resilience so that they are equipped to deal with the inevitable disappointments that come their way, and we help them to become more sensitive to the needs of others – open to talk and listen respectfully.
Through all seven years with us, we are committed to helping all our boys become GREAT Men.no
Educating generations of achievers
Established in 1495, Loughborough Grammar School is one of the UK’s oldest Independent schools. We are proud of our long and successful heritage. We delight in those traditions that keep the spirit of the School alive without constraining us from embracing modern day life.yes There will always be opportunities for you to be the best you can possibly be academically.
Welcoming boys. Nurturing young gentlemen.
We offer single sex education because we believe that boys focus better on their education and learning in a boys’ only environment. Based on a mixed sex campus there are plenty of opportunities for boys and girls to interact. They travel to School on the same buses, they enjoy Music and Drama together in our state-of-the-art facilities, and they share common extra-curricular activities such as CCF and academic societies.yes The School lets boys be themselves and find themselves
A history of academic achievement
We equip boys with a broad portfolio of skills which allows them to excel in public examinations and access the top universities and the courses of their choice. More than that, our curriculum trains our boys to be independent learners who love study and have the self-discipline and motivation to aim high and to realise their potential.yes It's cool to succeed
So much more than another department, Loughborough Schools Music is the joyous soundtrack that infuses life at all the Schools within the Foundation.
Housed in a purpose-built space, it is a vibrant musical hub with a constant creative buzz. From Pre-Prep to Sixth Form, every pupil has the opportunity, encouragement and very finest tuition to explore their musical passions, achieve their very best and perform at the highest level.
By any measure, facilities are outstanding. We are proud to be the only Schools in the Midlands to have a Music department with ‘All-Steinway School’ status and we have a huge variety of instrumental ensembles and choirs so every pupil gets to ‘strut their stuff’ on one stage or another. Do come to see and hear us. It really is something quite special.no
Our family of Boarders
We have a long tradition of boarding. Our two warm and welcoming Boarding Houses accommodate a thriving, active boarding community of 32 boys in each House. We promote a strong family atmosphere in our Boarding Houses, with each House run by a resident Housemaster and his family who lead a team of staff committed to the development and happiness of the boys in their care. Termly and weekly boarding is available.no
We offer an extensive choice of clubs and activities from Sports, Drama and Music to joining our Combined Cadet Force (CCF) – there really is something for everyone. We encourage pupils to participate in extra-curricular activities to enhance their learning and find the areas they feel most passionate about.yes Follow in the footsteps of generations of keen, kind and capable boys who learned, amongst much else, how to become the very best version of themselves.
