What the school says...

The Sir Joseph Williamsons Mathematical School is an 11-18 boys' Grammar School with over 310 in the co-educational sixth form, of whom around one third are female. Entry to the school is via an 11+ examination and we take approximately the top 25% of the ability range.

The school was inspected in November 2008 and judged to be Outstanding, with the lead inspector noting in her report that a buzz of excitement pervades the school. This success is echoed in the many awards which the school has received. These include Geographical Association's Geography Quality mark, Healthy Schools Award, and the Inclusive Schools Quality Mark.

Our aim is to support young people in becoming happy, confident and active citizens, ready to play a leading role in whatever walk of life they choose. We do this by ensuring our students achieve the best possible academic outcomes, while at the same time encouraging them to play a full and active part in the wider life of the school.

Aspire. Achieve. Excel
