A message from the Principal, Mrs Woodroofe

The Grammar School at Leeds is one of the UK’s leading independent, co-educational schools. It enjoys the heritage of both Leeds Grammar School and Leeds Girls’ High School with a lineage traceable back to 1552 and a long history of academic excellence. It benefits from a magnificent site on the outskirts of the north of Leeds.

We are committed to caring for our pupils as well as educating them. Our aim is to help them develop their individual abilities and talents within an ethic of teamwork, friendship and mutual respect.

We teach with pleasure and our pupils learn with enjoyment. That essentially sums up our mission. How well we accomplish it depends on much more than just excellent exam results. Our satisfaction lies in guiding children and young adults to become, quite simply, the best of their generation.

“The school meets most successfully its aim to produce young people capable of high achievement.”
