Welcome to our Junior School

At Hipperholme Grammar Junior School (HGJS), we understand that giving your child the best possible start in life is the greatest investment you can make. We offer a unique learning experience, with small class sizes, traditional values and excellent teaching.

Our classrooms are vibrant and welcoming – an environment suited to our individual approach to education. Here we focus on the specific capabilities of each pupil, nurturing their own talents and helping them to reach their full potential. Our warm and friendly atmosphere makes our children feel valued, cared for and happy.

Our curriculum extends from a strong academic focus to one that develops physical and social skills which will fully prepare a child for the next stage of their education. We offer specialist subject teachers and a wide range of extra-curricular activities throughout the day. Care is available before and after School to meet the needs of working families, and preparation for entrance exams to our own Senior School and other local grammar schools is all part of our service.

I hope these pages and our Prospectus will provide further evidence of the character and ethos of our School, but it cannot compare to the real experience. Come and see for yourself what we have to offer and what makes our School special.

I would like to think that HGJS is the right choice for your child, because to me it stands for ‘Here Great Journeys Start’. I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you and discuss that journey soon.

Mrs Sarah Weller, Headteacher of Junior School
