Investing in Our Future Success

Building on our strong foundations, investing in our future success, the future is taking shape.

The Grange has never been a school to stand still!

As a relatively young school in a lively and competitive market, we spent many of our early years in 'catching up', in terms of our facilities, with the more established schools around us; the physical development of both sites was a top priority at that time.

In more recent years, while the process has slowed and the quality of our provision inside our classrooms has been our major focus, we have still built several new buildings development of The Grange Theatre; The Junior School sports hall, music and science extension and the pavilion at New Fields - which have greatly enhanced the life of our community, and demonstrate the quality we now aspire to as an established and successful institution.

Centre of Excellence

The new Sixth Form facility, completed in September 2014, sits on the north eastern corner of the Senior School site, beyond The Grange Theatre and Performing Arts building. It is a two storey, pavilion-style building, with a terrace and garden to the rear, which is designed to minimise the impact of the building on the neighbouring properties.

Benefits
  • Whilst still closely connected to the rest of the school, the Sixth Form Centre provides our senior students with unique and largely self-contained social facilities.
  • The ground floor is largely given over to a substantial Common Room with room for over 200 students to relax at break times.
  • At the heart of the Common Room there is a café serving drinks, cakes, snacks and lunches, only open to Sixth Formers and staff.
  • There are study facilities on both floors, offices for pastoral staff, two classrooms (Politics and Philosophy), bookable seminar rooms and a Careers Room.

Built for performance

The Grange has made the development of sport a priority over recent years, with the building of the Junior School Sports Hall, the multi-use pitches at the Senior School and the pavilion at the playing fields. Situated at the top of the site and with direct access to Top Field and the all -weather facilities.

The construction of a new 2500 square metre, £6m Sports Centre at the Senior School has begun with the new exciting facilities and set to be fully completed for September 2018.

Sport and exercise is an integral part of a Grange education both within the curriculum and as part of an extensive enrichment offering. In recent years the school has enjoyed considerable national success in netball, hockey, rowing and athletics, whilst also encouraging participation at all levels of sport for general fitness and well being.

This fantastic new facility will encourage even greater participation in sport and the development of a healthy and active lifestyle for all. It will also act as a home for the school’s elite performers and, no doubt, a springboard to further sporting success at the highest levels for many years to come.

Benefits
  • The main hall will offer 2500 square metres of space, twice the size of our current hall.
  • A high level facility including premier netball, badminton, football, basketball courts and an area tailored for activities such as yoga, dance, gymnastics and aerobics.
  • There will be a large multi-gym, fitness and rowing ergo area on the first floor, as well as offices for the PE Department, rowing team and a store/office for the Duke of Edinburgh's Award scheme.
  • Changing, toilet and washing facilities will easily be able to accommodate a whole year group.
