Founded in 1495, Loughborough Grammar School is one of the oldest and most academically able schools in England, educating over 1,000 boys.  Situated on a wonderful, tree-lined campus, at its centre is a handsome Victorian College quadrangle, complemented in the 20th century by the sympathetic addition of an English Centre with an integral Studio Theatre and a Modern Languages complex.  Other recent developments include an Art and Design Centre, a Refectory, a well-equipped Sports Hall and a newly-completed Science Park.

Academic Profile:
Very strong in the Sciences and Mathematics but offering a full range of subjects at Advanced Level.  Many boys go on to study Engineering, Mathematics, Medicine, and Pure Sciences at university but an equal number pursue Arts subjects to degree level.

Accommodation and Facilities     
There are two separate and well-appointed Boarding Houses: Denton House and School House. Denton House has been extended and refurbished, caters for boys aged 10 -18: School House, also undergoing extensive refurbishment, caters for boys in Year 12 and 13 only.  In addition to the on-site Boarding Houses, members of staff and their families who live very near to the school also accommodate some senior boys.
The Boarding Houses are at the heart of the campus and each is staffed by a senior Housemaster and his family who live in their own separate accommodation within the houses.  Main meals are taken in the School Refectory but each House has its own kitchen where boarders can make themselves snacks and drinks. The houses are networked to the campus computer system enabling boys to access work areas, use e-mail to keep in touch with their families, and have supervised access to the internet.  Boarders also have supervised access to a well-equipped Sports Hall and an indoor Swimming Pool.
