Our ethos

At Wisbech Grammar School, academic excellence is at the heart of our approach. We believe that educational development is not simply confined to the classroom or laboratory, but can be found in the art and music rooms, the drama and dance studios, out on the sports fields, discovering creativity through art & design or challenging children through the Duke of Edingburgh Award Scheme.

These elements of our curriculum mixed with our academic programme enable our pupils to ‘discover who they are’ and unlock their own potential.

The Wisbech Grammar School Way is all about reaching beyond the narrow confines of exams to provide an all-round educational experience. The School’s ethos is based on hundreds of years of tradition where Wisbech Grammar pupils have the opportunity to experience a community spirit, everyone is connected, teachers, pupils, and families work together to ensure every child reaches achieves their personal goals. This is achieved through;

  • Expert teachers that teach beyond a textbook
  • Enrichment opportunities outside of the classroom
  • An environment that supports children to Discover, Grow and Learn
  • A community that supports each other, encourages pupils to be the best they can be.
