Heckmondwike Grammar School is proud of its reputation and the successes which our pupils have achieved here over the years. Despite recent changes to the structure of education much remains as before. We are still a state grammar school providing free education. Our aims are the same; to achieve the best possible academic standards and to develop those qualities in our pupils which will make them responsible citizens of the future. We have a dedicated and well qualified staff. Most importantly the partnership between staff, parents and pupils, always strong in the past, continues to flourish and is a vital factor in sustaining the purposeful working atmosphere which exists throughout the school.
A school should be judged not simply on its examination results or its facilities but on the fitness of its pupils to succeed in later life. We think we serve our pupils well. More importantly so do others, including The Times which regularly includes us in their list of top 100 state schools and Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Schools who described us as "an outstandingly successful school".
