Sutton Coldfield Grammar School for Girls – Grammar School Guide

Sutton Coldfield Grammar School for Girls

Headteacher: Dr Barbara Minards

Motto: Not for Our Own Advantage, but for the Common Good

History: The school originally started as Sutton Coldfield High School. The school opened in 1929 having been originally mooted from 1906. Several sites were considered prior to Jockey Road being chosen. In 1962, the name changed to Sutton Coldfield Girls School and then towards the end of the 1990s, the school adopted its final name, Sutton Coldfield Grammar for Girls. It has a close link with Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School for Boys, given the relative proximity.

Facilities: Unlike the other schools in the area, due to the time it was built, the buildings are much more familiar to anyone who attended a school which was built after the turn of the 20th century. However, that’s not to say that the inside of the buildings have not undergone significant renovation to bring the school into the 21st century. Many of the classrooms have been updated and filled with modern technology.

Sport: The girls at Sutton Coldfield Grammar School take part in a range of sports from netball to hockey and have the opportunity to take dance and gymnastics as part of their lessons. They are encouraged to take part in extra-curricular activities and compete against girls from other schools, instilling the theme of teamship and competitive endeavour that then shines through.
