About the School
Townley Grammar School is an academically selective and socially responsible girls’ school with a coeducational Sixth Form.
Students value learning for its own sake: to take joy from the pursuit of ideas and the struggle to understand. Townley Grammar School students learn in a stimulating environment where teachers understand how to challenge and where the range of extracurricular opportunities is vast and varied. It is an exceptional school, rated outstanding by Ofsted, and highly commended by the DfE for its leading-edge character education provision.
It is through the pursuit of the arts, coupled with academic rigour that students fully flourish; this is facilitated through specialisms in the Performing & Visual Arts, as well as Maths and Computing.
It is Townley Grammar School's responsibility to draw out all students’ talents, to extend their potential and to develop their personal qualities. The school values resonate in everything they do; their vision is of leading a learning community fostering academic, emotional and physical confidence. Staff aim to cultivate resilience, courage and compassion; to enhance communication skills; to embrace creativity, and to promote a progressive and outward-looking mentality so that students are well prepared to make a real difference in their community.
Hard work and dedication are essential for success and so is the development of a work ethic. Success in education as in sport is the result of successive small failures followed by ever-increasing challenges. Students know that everything worth achieving is outside of their comfort zone. This learning challenge is what staff term Scholastic Endeavour; all students are encouraged to engage in academic study at all levels. It is, in short, the capacity to be inspired to become the very best you can be.
Townley Grammar School unashamedly put the wellbeing of its girls on an equal footing with their academic achievements and staff are proud to develop intellectually curious, self-motivated and enthusiastic young women.
Townley students learn ambition from the original meaning of the word - the Greek root ambit which means wingspan. The girls are prepared to spread their wings, embrace opportunities and lead the world they enter. Outward-facing in all that we do, the school focus on service, leadership and character education means that Townley students leave fully prepared for the challenges of the 21st Century. An innovative 21c curriculum is a commitment to developing Townley Grammar School students into confident, knowledgeable and active change agents; ready to thrive in a forever changing world. Staff fully comprehend change is occurring faster than any of us could have imagined, they are preparing the students to navigate and shape the direction they choose rather than simply following established paths.
AN ENVIABLE CURRICULUM
Townley Grammar School runs a comprehensive leadership programme for students, which sees them gain confidence, understand leadership styles and equips them to speak in public. Coupled with a school focus on character education and 21c, staff facilitate an enviable curriculum offer. Townley Grammar School promotes intellectual mobility through empowering students to think independently and apply the knowledge they gain within the classroom to the wider world. The innovative curriculum embeds global perspectives, whilst exciting links with partner schools across the world facilitate opportunities for a wide array of international trips. Through its enlightened curricular and pioneering symposium model, all students learn to challenge and question as well as to listen to alternative views. With such an education the girls have a duty to grow into young women who desire to improve the world for others; to be the change they wish to see.
Ultimately our raison d’etre and purpose is to help all students know that.
