Welcome from the Head
At Torquay Boys’ Grammar School we are more than a powerful academic institution with a reputation for top quality examination results. We believe ‘Education’ to mean far more than achieving a string of top grades in public examinations; indeed that is a given for our students, so we also offer a comprehensive range of sporting, musical and cultural pursuits with an outstanding record of success unsurpassed in the South West.
Our facilities are of a very high quality and provide a wonderful setting for our students to learn. Our school mantra has long been to maintain the best of the old and combine it with the best of the new; academic excellence, punctuality, smartness and courtesy combined with a curriculum appropriate to developing students’ skills to equip them for lifelong learning and their future careers.
According to Ofsted, Torquay Boys’ Grammar School is in every respect an outstanding school. In teaching, learning, achievements, standards, in pastoral care, sport, extra-curricular activities, buildings and resources the school is acknowledged to excel. The Inspectors wrote: “The school is enthused with a lively and open atmosphere which encourages innovation and underpins a relentless drive to provide the very best education for the student”.
I am very fortunate and privileged to be given the opportunity to follow Roy Pike as Headteacher of Torquay Boys' Grammar School. He has done so much over so many years to build the wonderful school we see today and I, together with everyone associated with TBGS, will seek to keep the school and Multi-Academy Trust moving forward, constantly striving to improve the provision and opportunities for our students.
