Former Student appointed as Head!

Congratulations to Nic Anderson OW 1990 on being appointed 39th Head of Wolverhampton Grammar School!

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Nic Anderson, OW 1990 as the new Head of Wolverhampton Grammar School.

Nic, who has been the Acting Head since 1 September 2023, will take up the permanent position as Head with immediate effect, offering a seamless transition for parents, staff and students. Nic is well known to the WGS community having enjoyed a long association with the School for over 40 years. His journey first began as a young senior school student. For the last 26 years, he has been a much-loved member of the teaching staff, first as a Maths Teacher and Teacher in charge of boys’ hockey, then in 2005 as Head of Lower School in charge of Years 6, 7 and 8, and more recently as Deputy Head (Academic) and a member of the Senior Management Team since 2009.

"I am touched and thrilled to have been offered this opportunity to become the new permanent Head of Wolverhampton Grammar School.  WGS is so dear to me and has been with me for the best part of my life. I can’t imagine a greater honour than to be asked to lead WGS into its next exciting chapter. My journey from being a boy at school here, through to my adult teaching career and seeing my own children become WGS students, has come full circle. It is with the utmost pride that I take up my headship."
