Grove's Got Talent! Evening show Friday 4th December 6pm. Tickets available from reception £3 adults and £1.50 students

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.


Mrs Sonia Taylor
