Welcome to Adams' Grammar School

A voluntary aided, selective state grammar school for day pupils and boarders located in Newport, Shropshire.

We welcome boys aged 11-18 as day boys or boarders and girls aged 16-18 as day girls in our sixth form.  800 pupils attend Adams ' Grammar School, including 270  in our thriving Sixth Form. .

We have three specialisms: we are a Technology College , a Language College and a Training School.

Around 100 of our students are boarders.  Boarding is currently for boys only, boarders joining us at age 11, age 13 or in the sixth form.  Boarding is an important part of school life and contributes much to the ethos of our school.

Adams' is a Haberdashers' Company School, founded in 1656  by local benefactor and Haberdasher William Adams. To this day the Haberdashers' Company maintains a close involvement with our school.

Headmaster Michael Barratt and his team believe in celebrating success and in educating the whole person, equipping students to play an active and leading role in society in the twenty-first century. Providing an outstanding learning experience is at the heart of everything we do in school.  We achieve this by enriching pupil experiences both inside and out of the classroom.   Being a school with a long history would make it easy to rely on tradition and  traditional values do indeed form the foundation of our day to day lives. However we are also forward-looking in the way we listen to pupils' views, embrace technology and in the way we focus on continual improvement in all parts of the school.

In recent years the school has experienced unprecedented success with its academic results, as well as with its achievement and inclusion of extra-curricular activities. Instead of relaxing into complacency this has fuelled our desire to improve even further. For us school improvement is a continual process. Education is a lifelong journey, and we have the privilege of being able to prepare young men and women for the next part of that journey.

If you share our philosophy and aspirations and would like to be part of our community we invite you to browse our website, request a prospectus but best of all come along and visit our school and meet some of our inspirational pupils.
