Welcome to The Grove School

We hope you find out all you need to know about our school from this website but if you don’t, feel free to give us a call.  We are an excellent school with amazing children and staff.  We love our school and are sure you will too!  


Please remember that if anyone in your household develops symptoms of a raised temperature, a new and continuous cough or loss of taste or smell, then they should be tested and the whole family remain at home until a negative result.  If the result is positive you must inform school immediately.  

Please be warned that if there is a positive result in a 'class bubble' then the whole class will need to be sent home to isolate for 10 days from last contact with the positive case.

The new updated risk assessment can be found on this website under -about- parent information



What are we like as a school?

The best place to see us in action is through our class pages - use the tab above to have a closer look at what our learning at The Grove School looks like.

We now also are offering before school and after school care for your children.

Safeguarding at our school is our highest priority.

Please see our safeguarding policy for more details and if you have any concerns please don't hesitate to contact us.  Find details for contact here:


We are part of Operation Encompass, helping families within domestic abuse situations.  Please see http://www.operationencompass.org/


There is no on-site parking and access is restricted in the interests of the safety of our pupils, staff and visitors.  Please find alternative parking outside of the school grounds and walk in to school and use the double doors at our entrance at the bottom of Blueball Hill.
