Welcome to the Primary Phase of William Hulme's Grammar School! We cater for children from 3 to 11 and have one class per year group from Nursery to Year 6.
Throughout the Primary Phase our children are encouraged to become independent and enthusiastic learners. The bright and well equipped classrooms are complemented by the facilities that we share with the Secondary Phase, such as the sports' pitches, ICT suites and dining hall, promoting an environment where children can develop fully.
There is an emphasis on individual needs throughout the school, with extra support or challenge for those who need it. Numeracy and literacy are paramount and we provide a broad and challenging creative curriculum. Sport and physical education are enjoyed by all the pupils, with a strong emphasis on participation for all. Art, music and drama all form part of the curriculum and there are clubs and extra-curricular activities which aim to enrich the children's experiences and involve them in a s many positive and exciting activities as possible. More information on the curriculum and extra-curricular activities is available elsewhere on the website.
Residential trips are offered to children in Key Stage Two, including trips to our own outdoor centre in North Yorkshire. Day visits are also undertaken by all the children to places of interest, complementing and enriching the work taking place in the classroom.
