Back To School

For more details on how we are preparing for a safe return to school this September, read our Back to School Guide.

Huddersfield Grammar School takes pride in the academic progress and achievement of its pupils, and is now ranked by The Sunday Times as a Top 100 Prep School.

Extensive use is made of standardised data, the progress of each individual child is closely tracked and academic interventions are swift and impactful.

2019 GCSE Highlights

Eight in every ten grades (79%) awarded exceeded expectations, resulting in HGS delivering better GCSE results than any of its fellow non-selective schools across both Kirklees and Calderdale.

100% of pupils achieved at least five grades at 9-4 (formerly A*-C), ensuring an even stronger performance than last year in spite of the newly reformed and more exacting qualifications.

Huddersfield Grammar School achieved nearly double the UK-wide percentage of grades at 9-7, achieving 37% against a UK average of 20%, with 92% of grades at 9-4 compared to 69% nationally.


This was a particularly kind and committed year group that wore their ability lightly, which makes me even more proud that it was they who delivered our strongest GCSE results since the qualifications were reformed.
