Welcome to Grove School
I believe that the students of Market Drayton and beyond deserve the very best education and at Grove School we aim to create a centre of excellence by building a culture and ethos that creates opportunities for students to master key skills. We strive to engender an infectious, lifelong enthusiasm for learning, creating a community with ambition, a sense of self-worth, belief and personal growth, able to succeed in an ever-changing world.
I want to encourage our young people to have the highest expectations, aspirations and ambitions, creating ‘can do’ attitudes in order to meet the challenges of the global marketplace both now and in future years. All of our students have the right to feel emotionally supported and valued and I will ensure that Grove’s outstanding record in safeguarding children is maintained. Our vision is for all students to have a mind set to succeed - and you will see this message on our new logo throughout the school.

We welcome visits from prospective parents with children in years 3, 4, 5 and 6 during the school day. Please contact the school to make an appointment.
A Level success for Grove College!
There were some outstanding results for students at Grove College in their A levels this year enabling them to go on to study a variety of courses. Particular successes were: Toby Cordova with grades A, B, B; Abbie Hickson with A, B, B, B; Rachel Owen with A, B, B; Will Murray, Sarena Tamana and Emily Rogers with 2 As.
Vocational students achieved very well too with Chloe Allen, Sam Arnott, Lee Harrison, Holly Jones, Susanna Loosemore, Ryan Robinson and Oliver Robinson Barber achieving 2 Distinction* grades.
AS results saw successes too with Zoe Watson achieving 4 As, Max Dubois Jones 3 As and Rowan Cookson 3As. There were also 2 As for Emily Rogers and William Trow in their extended projects.
There were huge successes for students studying Cambridge Technical courses at the College with six students who initially had not considered university as an option, securing places as a result of studying hard over three years.
Headteacher, Sonia Taylor said, “I am especially thrilled with these results and would like to congratulate every one of our students for their hard work and determination. I would also like to thank all staff who have shown tremendous dedication and commitment and of course all our parents who have supported their children in their studies. At Grove College we aim to secure bright and successful futures for all of our students and these results mean that all of our students who applied have been offered university places."
Students will be studying a diversity of courses including Marine Biology, Business, Psychology, Biology and English.
We would like to wish students, parents, carers, staff and friends of Grove a restful, safe and happy summer. All students return to school on Wednesday 7th September.
