Old Wulfrunians of Wolverhampton Grammar School Old Wulfrunians of Wolverhampton Grammar School. This site is dedicated to offering a vehicle for Old Wulfrunians to communicate with the school and more importantly each other, in a celebration of what makes the WGS community so special.
We also recognise that this community is not just made up of alumni, so we very much hope that past parents will also use this site to establish (or re-establish) links with the school they so generously supported in the past. We would like this site to be a catalyst from which will spark a host of events including year group reunions, Coast 2 Coast reunions, big band reunions, theatrical reunions
