Kirkham Grammar School places a high priority on academic success and small teaching groups, especially during the examination years, supported by small tutor groups, thereby creating an enviable learning environment.
The academic life of Kirkham Grammar School is guided by two key principles:
- to educate pupils to know as broadly and to think as independently and incisively as possible
- to achieve the best possible exam results for each pupil.
Inside and outside the classroom, pupils are challenged through discussion, careful and knowledgeable specialist teaching, visits, lectures, mentoring, and tutoring. They are prepared with care for examinations and university, and are encouraged to develop independent and inquiring minds.
