Welcome to Queen Mary’s Grammar School
Queen Mary’s Grammar School was founded in 1554 by Mary Tudor. We have been shaped by our past and are proud of our traditions, but we are also confident of an exciting future as we help to shape the new educational landscape with our partners in the Mercian Trust.
Queen Mary’s is an academically selective school, but wellbeing and pastoral care is at the heart of what we do. The School has gained national attention for our focus on mental health (through the ‘Change Your Mind’ Programme) and the School community is a huge strength, summed up in our motto: ‘Quas dederis solas semper habebis opes’; It is what you give that you will keep as eternal riches.

Welcome to Queen Mary’s Grammar School, a selective boys’ grammar school with academy status.
This is a happy school with a sense of family at its heart. Students enjoy their learning and staff are devoted to the delivery of stimulating and challenging lessons that facilitate achievement.
In September 2016, QMGS became one of the first 14 secondary schools in the UK to participate in the Mandarin Excellence Programme: a new intensive language programme funded by the Department for Education.
Students on the programme study eight hours of Mandarin Chinese every week – including four hours of classroom taught lessons. Find out more about the MEP and Mandarin at QMGS here.
Change Your Mind is a nationally recognised programme, which had its inception at QMGS. It provides 16 and 17 year old students the opportunity to plan and deliver health and wellbeing workshops to local primary school schools. It is in the very best tradition of our School ethos.
