About the School

The Upton Court Grammar School website has a vast amount of information about the school.

The school, previously known as Slough Grammar School, changed its name to mark the exciting transition into its second century. The school values its tradition of excellence and honours all of those who have, through their academic credentials and personal commitment, become outstanding members of the community and role models for the next generation.

At the forefront of education for more than a century, Upton Court Grammar School successfully blends tradition with a forward-thinking, internationally-minded educational philosophy that truly meets the needs of young people venturing into adulthood in an increasingly complex world.

Staff are driven by the desire to challenge able students and nurture them to think creatively, critically and reflectively. Of equal importance is finding the appropriate level academically and allowing them to develop as a whole person through nurturing and valuing non-academic skills.

Staff believe that achieving academic qualifications is important, but also look to develop personal qualities like leadership and teamwork, determination and flexibility, respect and consideration, confidence and self-belief. They understand that many of life’s successes are governed by attitude rather than innate intelligence and that a strong work ethic will take you far in life.

As a selective school, Upton Court Grammar School provides academic young people from all backgrounds with the means to compete in the challenging future labour market and become principled and active citizens. The school also values personal growth and expect all students to act with integrity and honesty, with a strong sense of fairness, justice and respect for the dignity of the individual, groups and communities. Students understand the importance of intellectual, physical and emotional balance to achieve personal well-being for themselves and others.

Education at Upton Court Grammar School is about inspirational teachers and aspirational pupils based firmly on high expectations. Upton Court Grammar School expects nothing but the best from all students who continue to reward staff trust with excellent exam results, sought after university offers and exceptional levels of participation in extracurricular and enrichment activities. Upton Court Grammar School's results speak for themselves and have been validated by an Ofsted inspection grading of Outstanding in every category.

Upton Court is a successful school community built on a strong culture and curriculum which takes into account the richness and diversity brought in by its members. As a world class school they take their commitment to the wider community very seriously and expect parents to be active participants.
