What the school says...

The Grammar School at Leeds is a selective, independent, day school for girls and boys aged 3 to 18 years. The new school is the result of a merger in September 2008 between Leeds Grammar School (founded in 1552) and Leeds Girls High School (founded in 1876). As individual schools, they have a long-established and proven pedigree in developing well-rounded, mature young men and women ready to embrace further education and to face the world as confident, caring citizens.

Rose Court Nursery and Pre-Prep is housed in newly expanded premises in Headingley. ...Read more
