Welcome to Grove School
I am delighted to introduce myself to you as the Headteacher of Grove School. I have joined the Grove community at a very exciting time where the team of staff are working hard to ensure that all students achieve. This is demonstrated in the 7% increase in the number of students who achieved 5 GCSE's A*-C including English and maths in the summer. My goal is to ensure that continuous improvements are made year on year in all aspects of school life and I know that we have a highly committed, enthusiastic and dedicated team of staff who will work tirelessly with your child to unlock their potential.
I believe firmly that the students of Market Drayton and beyond deserve the very best education. It is my aim to ensure that they are presented with opportunities that allow each individual to flourish personally, socially, emotionally and academically, whether that be through a traditional or vocational suite of qualifications. I want to encourage our students 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. I believe that all our students have the right to feel safe and valued and will ensure that Grove's outstanding record in safeguarding children is maintained.
Young people have only one chance when it comes to their education; it is imperative that we expect nothing less than 100% from each student, and in return, offer nothing less than the highest standards of teaching and learning. Being an inclusive school is something of which I am very proud and it is my belief that students at whatever their level deserve to be nurtured, supported and challenged to do their very best.

Market Drayton 10K
The Market Drayton 10K run was held at Grove School at the weekend. The inclement weather did not put off the 2300 runners who started and finished the race on the Grove school field. Among the competitors were six members of staff from Grove; Michelle Williams, Saffron Baxter, Stewart Harrison, Adam Richards, Dan Ferguson and John Timmis all completed the race.
Congratulations to the Grove runners and to everyone who competed and completed the course!
