About the School

Poole Grammar Schoot is a unique environment: the pupils who study there, their teachers, the support staff; the richness of the academic, cultural, sporting and extra-curricular opportunities offered. It has been providing a first class education for the Borough of Poole since 1904 and the close ties it enjoys with the local community are evident in the number of Old Grammarians who play a leading role in the life of the town today and who return to the staff room.

Poole Grammar School is a vibrant and forward-looking community where each individual is valued and can achieve his full potential whatever his talents and interests. Staff give boys many opportunities to grow into politely self-confident able young men who are equipped in a world where critical thinking, teamwork and independence of thought are essential for success.

Academic results place Poole Grammar School in the premier division of grammar schools and this is achieved by hard work – from a capable and enthusiastic staff and from the boys themselves. Poole Grammar School seeks to instil in them a love of learning and a respect for scholarship, and a willingness to make a positive contribution to their community.

A well-organised, supportive pastoral system, based on an open home-school dialogue, enables all students to make excellent progress and develop self-discipline and good judgement.

As a school it is committed to training the next generation of teachers, and to providing our staff with high quality professional development opportunities. Poole Grammar School works closely with local schools and within the Sigma Teaching School Alliance and the South West Academic Trust to develop best practice in education.
