About Enfield Grammar School

Enfield Grammar is a successful school with a strong tradition and excellent reputation. We were rated ‘Good’ in our recent Ofsted inspection (September 2018) and continue to strive to improve outcomes for students. We take great pride in our comprehensive CPD programme that allows all staff to develop their practice and expand their skill set.

Enfield Grammar School is rightly proud of its fine traditions and examination achievements. We are also a school which is intent on ensuring that the breadth and quality of education will, as far as is possible, equip all of our pupils to meet the rapidly changing demands of the future.

We are a Specialist Sports College and converted to Academy status in August 2011. The School has achieved the ‘NACE Challenge’ and ‘Investors in People’ awards. There is a strong commitment to supporting staff development.

The School is based on two sites. The Upper School is a mixture of original 16th and more recent 20th Century buildings and is situated just off the Market Square in the centre of Enfield Town. The Lower School, some five minutes’ walk from the Upper School, is a 17th Century listed building which houses Years 7 and 8. The school roll is approximately 1100 boys, of whom some 210+ are in the Sixth Form.

The School has a strong commitment to extra-curricular activities of all forms and it is expected that all potential members of staff would be willing to support this commitment. As a comprehensive school dedicated to serving the local community, as it has done since 1558, we admit 180 boys each year, representing the full range of ability from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
