Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to The Grove School, Market Drayton

I am delighted to introduce myself to you as the new Headteacher of Grove School and Sixth Form. It is a real privilege to serve a school that has such a rich history and with so much potential for our future.

Since my appointment in January 2024, I have found Team Grove to be a welcoming, warm and friendly place. Students are keen to talk to me about things they are proud of here at Grove School and where they think things could be improved further. Our staff are excellent too – they have a firm alignment with the mission of improving the life chances of all of our students.

This website will give you the information you need to learn more about our school, from our curriculum through to enrichment opportunities, and introduce you to the seven-year journey that our students begin with us, from their first day in Year 7, through to the end of their post-16 studies.

Seeing Team Grove in action would be the best way to truly sense our culture – if this is something you would be interested in, please contact our reception team directly who will arrange this for you.

Thank you for your interest in Grove School and Sixth Form.

Mr Mitch Allsopp – Headteacher
