About Torquay Girls Grammar School

Torquay Girls’ Grammar school is the Sunday Times South West Secondary School of the Year 2019. There are currently 935 pupils in the school, 240 of them in the 6th form. There are two major points of entry: 150 places in Y7, where the pupils must take the 11+, and the Sixth Form where we take in about 50 external students. At both points of entry we are heavily oversubscribed. We take in students from a wide geographical catchment with approximately half coming from Torbay and half from Devon. We have a healthy balance of staff from NQTs to very experienced teachers, as well as a wide spread across the age range; this mix of experience and background provides for a happy, stimulating and rewarding environment. The role is to nurture the academic and personal development of our students. The teaching timetable is based on a 50 period fortnight with an average teaching load of 42 periods. The daily routine is from 8.40am to 3.45pm with after-school and lunchtime activities. In 2018 at A level 83% of grades were A*/ A or B and at GCSE over 71% were A or A*. This makes us one of the top twenty performing state girls’ schools nationally. Our 2016 Progress 8 score of 0.83 and ALPS score of 3 means we make outstanding progress when compared to similar schools. We were inspected by Ofsted in September 2011 and they judged us to be outstanding in all 22 key judgements and hence Outstanding overall. They wrote in the report that “Staff morale is very high.” 95%+ of pupils go on to top universities with some 10+ applying to Oxford or Cambridge each year. The school is extremely fortunate in attracting and retaining staff of the highest quality.
