The ratio of pupils to computers is currently an amazing three-to-one and there has been significant investment in Interactive Whiteboards and Data Projectors.

History

Grosvenor Grammar School was founded (as Grosvenor High School) in 1945 by the Belfast Corporation to cope with the increase in demand for grammar school education in the area. It was sited in Roden Street, off the Grosvenor Road, and remained there until 1958, when the present location was secured at Cameronian Drive in the east of the city.

Under the leadership of its three Headmasters (William Moles 1945-1972; Ken Reid 1972-1993; John Lockett 1993- ), the school has earned a deserved reputation for very high standards of achievement and pastoral care, innovation in education and a wide range of opportunities for pupils from all backgrounds, the vast majority of whom pass on to universities throughout the British Isles.

The area from which the school draws its pupils has expanded enormously over the years, to include Greater Belfast and North and Mid-Down, and in order to avoid confusion with non-grammar 'High Schools', the school changed its name in 1993 to Grosvenor Grammar School.
