Welcome to Townley Grammar School and the Sixth Form.

Townley Grammar School Sixth Form is a vibrant, friendly, high achieving and diverse learning community that fosters academic excellence alongside emotional and physical confidence. It is our aim to create inspirational learners who have the courage to take risks and the wisdom to learn from their mistakes. We want our students to develop as independent, caring and creative young adults with a strong sense of social responsibility and conscience. Students at Townley are friendly and supportive of one another, keen to make the most of the wide variety of opportunities that are available to them and to lead or contribute to the wider life of the school as well as acting as role models to the younger years. With a large Sixth Form of around five hundred students we are able to offer a wide range of subjects, but one of the things we are most proud about is our focus on not only providing the students with a first class academic experience but also exceptional pastoral provision. We value all of our students as individuals and their welfare is a key priority. We focus on providing them with a bespoke and personalised education which has been further enhanced by our different programmes of study. We want students to go beyond the formal curriculum and are passionate about the opportunities offered to them and how these skills can be transferred to their post 18 routes. I am so proud to work in this team, and with the incredibly talented students at Townley, and look forward to welcoming prospective students!’
