Year 7 is an exhilarating start to Senior School life
Start as you mean to go on is definitely our approach to the action packed, fun filled and learning something new everyday experience which is Year 7 at Loughborough Grammar School.
We combine pastoral care through our comprehensive House system and Form Tutor support – so each boy is safe, happy and confident; a busy academic programme in 14 subjects – so your son is challenged and engaged; and extra-curricular options in every imaginable field that stretch, excite and enthral.
Everywhere, variety is key and choice a bonus. We do not want boys to just be musicians, academics, or sports men. It is why we encourage involvement, whether that’s on the sports field, on the stage, in the community, public speaking, learning to cook or building a buggy. The choice is exhaustive and, in the best possible way exhausting, but it is also the best way to build friendships, confidence, life skills and to smile all the while.
Wherever your son turns and wherever his talents lie, he will find his interests supported and encouraged by the finest facilities, teaching and coaching. We have professional coaches in all sports, and we are the current county champions in hockey and cricket. We have one of the finest music facilities in the country and a rich programme of concerts, recitals and festivals and we look beyond our own beautiful location, with popular trips and adventures, including a 3-day residential get away for the whole year group each summer.
It is almost impossible to list everything Year 7 offers and the quality of the facilities, care and community your son will encounter every single day. We really do hope that your son has the opportunity to join us and join in.
