Stockport Grammar School is a 3 to 18 co-educational day school which recognizes the value of each pupil as an individual, and the importance of nurturing every aspect of their personality and potential – intellectual, creative, emotional, physical and spiritual.We encourage all pupils of all ages, backgrounds and religions at all times to discuss any issues or concerns with members of staff, working in partnership with parents to provide each individual with the support necessary to develop confidence and to flourish and thrive in a secure and supportive environment.

We promote high standards of good behaviour which require pupils to be considerate, polite, respectful and helpful towards each other. They learn to recognise the need to be responsible and reliable, to show loyalty appropriately and to support each other constructively.
