Welcome to Huddersfield Grammar School

We are a highly successful independent school in Yorkshire, providing a future-facing curriculum for the next generation of leaders. Our academic results are exceptional, with a focus on pupil wellbeing and character development at the heart of all we do.

Set in beautiful grounds, we provide children from ages 3-16 a caring, supportive environment in which to learn. Children are inspired from the very beginning of their educational journey in Nursery and Reception, and this continues right through the Pre-Preparatory, Preparatory and Senior School.

Huddersfield Grammar School offers academic stretch and an enviable co-curricular programme. We are renowned for our rich vein of kindness and inclusivity. We encourage our pupils to work hard, aspire to high academic standards and we delight in watching them become fully-rounded members of the school and community.

Character development

When children leave school, they should be equipped with the skills they need to be the best version of themselves. Today’s working world is a challenging one, and it’s crucial to develop a child’s character through teaching transferable skills that will help them to thrive in the future and beyond the classroom.

Academic quality

We are extremely proud to consistently achieve results that are far beyond the national average at every school stage – from Key Stage 2 results exceeding national averages by over 15% to quality GCSE outcomes at 23% higher than national results.

Future-focused curriculum

Keeping up with the ever-changing world, our curriculum encourages pupils to look beyond life at HGS and develop the important intangible skills that will benefit them throughout life as innovators, collaborators and leaders.

Our Nursery

  • Specialist teaching in PE, swimming and ballet, plus Forest School lessons.

  • Extensive extra-curricular programme

  • Nursery children follow a ‘mini’ timetable to help with the transition to Reception

  • EYFS funding offered (15 hours)

Our achievement

Sunday Times Top 20 School.

The school is celebrating its fifth year in the Parent Power Schools Guide, which identifies the highest-achieving schools in the UK, ranked by their performance in public examinations.

Since debuting in the league table back in 2018, our School now stands proudly in the Top 20 Schools according to The Sunday Times.

Our pupils are set to walk 21 miles from Whitby to Scarborough for YoungMinds on 10th July!

The children, from Year 7 to Year 10, have put themselves forward to lace up their walking boots and traverse one of the UK’s best coastlines.

Speaking about the challenge, Deputy Head and Safeguarding Lead Miss Collingwood said, “At HGS, the mental health and wellbeing of our students is integral to our everyday approach. Being a young person in 2024 can be tough and sometimes we need extra help navigating choppy waters.”

We have raised just under £1,500 so far, and would love to reach £3,000!

Our HGS Anti-Bullying Ambassadors have been busy this half-term, putting together helpful tips and tricks for our students.

As part of their Diana Award, which raises awareness of bullying behaviour, our team would like to encourage all pupils, and parents, to switch their social media profiles to private. 

Firstly, this ensures all data is safe, and secondly, it means you only have people on your social media that are your friends, that are kind, and that are there to support and uplift you.

Thank you for your hard work team!
