Loughborough Grammar School, with an illustrious history dating back to the 1400s, is an integral part of a sprawling campus shared with four other schools within the Foundation. The campus seamlessly blends old-world charm with modern amenities, creating a village-like atmosphere. The school's centrepiece is the magnificent tower and courtyard, which provided a stunning backdrop for our interview with the Head, Helen Foster. Ms Foster's unique approach to nurturing and challenging boys equally, sets the school apart, offering a distinctive educational experience.
