Welcome to our Virtual Open Evening 2021

It is our pleasure to welcome you to Heckmondwike Grammar School

We have a very strong reputation in the local area, regionally and even nationally as a school which does all it can to support students in achieving the highest grades and progressing to the best possible destinations. Our ethos for the whole school community is based on the school motto “Nil Sine Labore” – Nothing Without Work. We expect a lot from our students and staff and recognise that hard work brings rewards. However, whilst exam grades are important, we also offer a thriving extra-curricular provision centred around the House system and recognise the more students put in to their time at school, the more they will get out of it.

Choosing a secondary school is a difficult decision to make for both parents and students. While we are currently unable to offer you the chance to visit us in person, here you can take a tour of our school with the Headteacher, see what life is like at Heckmondwike Grammar School, and hear what our current Year 7 students love most about the school.

We hope you enjoy your virtual visit.
