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.
We value the life of the mind and want to pass on a love of learning but we also believe that achievement and enjoyment go hand in hand.
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.
The Queen Mary’s Observer is a student led termly newspaper. It provides a fascinating insight into the life of the school and we encourage you to read the latest edition here.
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.
