Welcome

Welcome to Stratford Girls' Grammar School; a place where bright, ambitious girls succeed.  We are enormously proud of our position as the top girls' state school in Warwickshire and we work hard to ensure our permanent ranking as one of the best state schools in the country.  We shape futures.

People are often surprised to learn that we are not a fee-paying school.  It is a common misconception due largely to the destinations and outcomes of our students and our enviable setting on the outskirts of Stratford-upon-Avon, both of which are academically and culturally comparable to schools in the independent sector.

We are incredibly proud to be the trusted custodians of the beautiful Shottery Manor.  This historic 15th century building represents the long-upheld traditions of our school since it began in 1958, yet it sits elegantly and with ease alongside the modern state-of-the-art facilities that ensure our students benefit from truly 21st century teaching and learning.  This, together with our excellent extra-curricular opportunities, mean that our students are quickly and fully immersed into our community, encouraged and challenged to take advantage of all of the opportunities they are presented with.  Music, Drama, Art and Sport are all strengths within our school and we have a strong reputation for success in these areas.

You are warmly invited to explore our website to find out more about what we offer, how we can help you to achieve, the support we provide during your journey and of course how to apply to join us.

  • Shaping Futures

    Shaping Futures

    The future is not a destination or a place. The benefits of pursuing a desired future are more valuable than arriving because when we try to shape our futures, we shape ourselves in the process.

  • Support

    Support

    Ensuring a positive and robust support system is in place for each and every student is of paramount importance at SGGS. The benefits of having such a system, such as higher levels of well-being, increased motivation, improved coping and learning skills all contribute to a clearer pathway to success.

  • Guide

    Guide

  • Grow

    Grow

    The link between mindset and achievement. A growth mindset leads to increased motivation and attainment. Our bespoke teaching and learning programme is second to none and our results speak for themselves.

  • Succeed

    Succeed

    Success is a skill, and it's a skill anyone can learn. Success leaves footprints, and truly successful people will share their journey and help others to do the same. Our students' success provides them with confidence, a sense of well-being, the ability to contribute at a greater level, hope and leadership.
