From helping to build a primary school to trekking in the Atlas Mountains, these groups of students from Year 8 and 9 had an unforgettable experience in Morocco.

What's you favourite school trip memory?


Today we waved off our Year 13s on their final day as Grange students.

We first got to know many of you as 4 year-old children in Reception. We think you'll agree that, since then, we've been on quite the journey together!

Some of you have starred in school productions, some of you have won national championships, some of you have led debates with students from around the globe.

One thing's for certain, you've all developed into fabulous young people, and made lots of friends along the way.

Best of luck with your exams. And after that, keep in touch! We can't wait to hear about all the amazing things you will do in the future.

Bye bye Year 11s. The end, as they say, of an era.

A lovely leavers assembly this morning lead by Year 13 (themselves leaving tomorrow), the traditional signing of the shirts, and a whole host of good-natured Staff Vs Year 11 competitions over lunchtime.

One of the really nice things about our school is how pleasant Year 11 Leavers' Day is...

Off on exam leave now. As a school we wish you the best of luck, and we look forward to welcoming many of you back as Sixth Formers in September.


A big well done to Lucas in Year 8 who 'Aced the ACORNS' last week earning an impressive 10 ACORNS points.

Our ACORNS points recognise exceptional displays of being:


Mastering these skills supports successful learning, whether it's inside the classroom or out in the real world, equipping our students to reach their fullest potential.

Keep up the great work Lucas!


Congratulations to Grange students Ella, Florence, Issy and Harriet on representing both West and East Cheshire in the first instalment of the U14 NW Counties Hockey Tournament. All students are part of the U14s Cheshire Schools winning squad. Good luck in the remainder of the tournament – we are very proud of you!

Charities Week is underway!

The Grand Bazaar came to The Grange today as our students' creativity and enterprise shone through at their stalls including Pin the Acorn on the Values Tree, How Many Jelly Beans, Beanbag Toss, Pinball, 'Casino' and Easter Egg Hoopla!

This year our donations go to 7 different charities nominated by the students in each year group:

Cheshire Search and Rescue
Macmillan Cancer Support
Alder Hey
The Joshua Tree
Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital and Charity
Project Gambia
Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Trust

Thank you to everyone who gave their time to raise money for such amazing causes.


Tonight, a very special place at the heart of our school plays host to its first open air production. Abi and Bede's Garden will provide a tranquil backdrop for The Grange School's in-the-round production of 'The Secret Garden'. 🌳🌼🌲

"This innovative adaption of the much-loved play has been made possible by the hard work of our talented actors and dedicated staff come rain or shine, quite literally. I'm very excited to be bringing outdoor theatre to the school once again" said Thomas Frith, Artistic Director at The Grange School.

March may hold 'inclement' surprises but the British weather will not stand in the way of our performers transporting you to the secret garden. As Dickon says "'s not the moor that'll make thee ill, it's being shut up indoors." So grab a cushion, your waterproofs, a blanket, a flask of something hot and embrace whatever the weather has to offer, for what promises to be a fantastic show.

Tickets are still available here πŸ‘‰


A huge thank you to all our students who got involved in Communities Week!

Throughout the week, all year groups participated in activities focused on β€˜giving back’ to our local community. As well as food donations, clothing collections, litter picking and nursery visits, our Year 9s crafted these heart-warming messages on Kindness Cards spreading smiles all around Hartford.

We are very proud of the kindness shown by our students and thank Miss Sargent and Mrs Harrison for all their work in making this week such a great success.


The sighting of the crescent moon last evening signalled the start of Ramadan. For Muslims the world over it is a time for reflection, self-control, and compassion.

As we wish Ramadan Mubarak to friends, family and the wider community observing the holy month, we can all take a moment to disconnect from the distractions of the world, instead focusing on simple acts of kindness, support, empathy and cherishing loved ones


Today, we celebrate the strength, determination, and achievements of the women in our community and beyond.

We cherish the opportunity to educate and empower our female students alongside their male peers, honouring the unique perspectives and strengths they bring to school life.

Happy International Women's Day 2024.

πŸ“š is a chance for students and staff to share their love of all things reading and book-related!πŸ“š

Dr Earps and Mr Oakes represented the staff in impressive style on the costume front (can you guess their characters?), while students' entries in the 'Book in a Box' competitions brought their favourite stories to glorious miniature 3D! Very impressive, well done to everyone that took part!


Delighted to be at for their Secondary Transition Evening. Thank you for having us. We can't wait to meet the students and their parents.

Something out of the ordinary for a Wednesday and a chance for our students to try something new. And they didn’t β€˜hang around’ in signing up for the aerial performance workshops 🀩 Sara from Barnton Circus soon had them gracefully aloft, striking some daring poses.


Are you looking for something fun to do with your little one tomorrow morning? Then we invite you to 'Stay and Play' at the Grange Junior School: a morning full of activities for 0-4 year olds led by our lovely Childcare Assistant, Caroline.

It was fastest fingers first as we quite literally followed every twist and turn last Thursday lunchtime in the brand new House Rubik's Cube Speed competition . Hayden's heroic handling helped Dane into third place, however, Bollin took the top spot in this inaugural tournament.

In the staff competition, despite Mr Walker being spotted taking every opportunity to practise, he was pipped to the post by Mrs Thayer further boosting Bollin's points!

The rivalry continues this week when our Juniors will battle it out.


🎊🧧 Happy Chinese New Year 2024 🎊🧧

What a fantastic sight! The reality of bringing together more than 20 schools around the world to focus on one important topic:

The 3rd MUN Good COP Bad COP conference is well underway discussing the impact of fast fashion and plastics, future energy solutions, and how to support communities through increasing living costs, all with the backdrop of tackling climate change.

The students have heard encouraging and inspiring insights from the UK's Ambassador to China and the Chinese Minister-Counsellor for Education supporting cross-cultural thinking and action during her speech.

Our sincere thanks to Engage with China and our own Mr Richard Higgins for coordinating this forum for debate.


Tomorrow The Grange School will host 22 schools from around the world for the 3rd Good COP, Bad COP Model United Nations conference debating the challenges, complexities and the COP28 resolutions around climate change. Remi and Theo will preside over proceedings with VIP speakers from the UK Ambassador to China, Dame Caroline Wilson and Minister Counsellor, Education at the Chinese Embassy in London, Mme Zhang Jin amongst others.

Student-led conferences hone multiple skills from cross-cultural communication to presentation, listening, empathy, research and leadership. Students also find themselves reflecting on their own behaviour, prejudices and understanding of the world – great preparation for their lives beyond school.

The online conference is organised by Engage with China to enable students to discuss the critical issue of climate change with people whose life experiences and perspectives are different from their own.

We hope all the students involved enjoy a day of lively discussion and debate.


Relying on their fitness, determination, a big splash of camaraderie, and some retro tunes, 25 of our older students raised almost Β£3,500 for Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital and Charity recently.

They embodied what it means to be kind, caring and selfless as they strapped themselves into the Ergs for a 24h Rowing Marathon which saw them row over 1.5 million virtual metres.

Rowing 6km every 4 hours, ('plus a bit' to make it a full marathon) took them so close to this incredible distance, with Hannah, Alex, Genevieve and Imogen completing TWO full marathons each. Gareth Ireland, Director of Rowing, rightly commented that this was a "phenomenal achievement".

"It was a lovely scene as 25 exhausted bodies rowed about 6km short of the 1.5 million metres so the parents all jumped on an erg to get them over the line" said Kat Huntriss, Head of Upper Sixth.

The students once again chose to raise funds for LHCH Charity in memory of John Nesbitt, a former student at The Grange School. It takes the total donated to the charity by the school, over the years, to more than Β£10,000.

We are very proud of Eloise for organising this event, and say a massive Thank You and Well Done to all involved. πŸ‘


Whilst our rowers are fantastic athletes, they wouldn't get very far on the water without Colin Ratcliffe!

Thanks to Colin The Grange School Rowing Club rowed 64,350 training km in the 2022–2023 season. Alongside his work maintaining and repairing our fleet, he also loaded 336 boats and towed them 3,932 miles around the country for the events we attended!

Having been awarded the Day Cup for Outstanding Contribution to School Life at our annual Prizegiving back in September, further recognition came in December as he was announced as the North West regional winner in the 'Volunteer of the Year' category by British Rowing.

The finals of the competition were held last week and although not taking the national award on this occasion, Colin is a winner in our opinion. Gareth Ireland, Director of Rowing at the Grange School said β€œI am thrilled that Colin is the North West Regional winner of the Volunteer of the Year. This award rightly recognises his phenomenal effort and the dedication he has provided the club with for 18 years. He does this alongside a team of other committed volunteers, and I am truly grateful for the support they give us.”

Thank you Colin and your wonderful team.


⚽ Following successful trials, Year 8 students Bruno, Aadav and William have been selected for the North West ISFA u13 football side - fantastic news!

Neil Cusick, PE Teacher, congratulated them saying "It is a fantastic achievement and they will now go on to represent the region at a festival during the Easter holidays. Best of luck boys!"



There are a number of active and planned roadworks in Hartford that will affect journeys to school in the next few days. This information is taken from Cheshire West and Chester website:

THE GREEN - Currently closed and likely to remain so tomorrow (Monday 22nd Jan). Severely impacting traffic coming up School Lane towards The Grange. Diversion in place via Riddings Lane (please note Hartford Primary School is on Riddings Lane)

BEACH ROAD - Planned roadworks starting Monday 22nd Jan between Hodge Lane (Junior School roundabout) and Bradburns Lane.

FIRDALE ROAD (Winnington) - Planned closure starting Monday 22nd Jan - likely to impact Grange traffic as people seek alternative routes.

A556 BYPASS - Lane closures.


Upper Sixth student, Eloise, has organised a 24-hour Row which is taking place tomorrow (Saturday 20th) in the Sports Centre. More than 30 students from Years 11-13 will row 6km every 4 hours starting at 8am on Saturday, and will complete their last leg at 8am on Sunday, all to raise money for the Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital and Charity. The long haul will feature themed hours from ABBA and will finish up with a disco vibe! πŸŽ΅πŸ’ƒπŸ•Ί

As a School we are so proud when our students organise fundraising events - the intiative they show, the genrosity in the time they give and spirit with which they undertake the challenges is truly remarkable.

Other students, staff and even parents are being encouraged to have a go too! πŸ₯΅

Good Luck rowers!
