Acting Head of School’s Welcome

Welcome to The Grove School, Market Drayton

I am delighted to welcome you to The Grove School website and introduce you to our amazing school.

At The Grove School, we are passionate about opening doors for students so that they can become the best versions of themselves.  We appreciate the power that education can have in creating ambitious and successful students who are ready to embrace the wider world of possibilities that await them.  Whilst we have high aspirations for our students academically, with many of our sixth formers leaving to study at the UK’s top universities, we know that a great school is more than that.  We place the importance of nurturing young people to have a strong sense of belonging, self-worth and personal growth at the heart of all that we do.  Our Discovery Curriculum is all about this: allowing our students to ‘discover’ themselves, whilst appreciating their role as members of the wider Market Drayton community and preparing for a successful life in an ever-changing world.

Our school vision of A Mind Set to Succeed is the foundation of all that we do, where our students become resilient and triumph over any challenge in their path. We foster independent learning, confidence and leadership in our students, through stimulating and challenging lessons.  We also provide a range of activities beyond the classroom so that students can pursue their own interests and passions.  Relationships between our staff and students are excellent and we offer the very best pastoral care in a caring and supportive environment. We understand the importance of family and, here at The Grove School, we are working hard to create a community where both our staff and students are overwhelmingly proud to be a member.

The Grove School is proud to be part of The Marches Academy Trust. Their vision of ‘Achievement through Caring’ has resulted in providing access to outstanding support which helps staff and students alike to achieve at the highest level.  Collectively, we are committed to providing an excellent all-round education for our entire community.

Whilst this website provides you with all of the important information about our school, this is just the tip of the iceberg.  We look forward to welcoming you to our learning community and meeting our great students and staff for yourselves.
