The Vesey Experience

Founded in 1527, Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School is a very special place, providing inspiration and excellence to able boys and girls from Birmingham and across the Midlands. Academically, we are one of the leading state schools nationally.

We successfully build on the talents of our students. At ‘A’ level, in 2018, 83% of the grades were at A*-B and 55% at A*/A. Meanwhile at GCSE over 70% of all grades were Grade 7 or better. 70% of our students go on to study at prestigious Russell Group universities, with fifteen students going on to study at Oxbridge.We open doors by offering Year 7 students the chance to study Mandarin, learn a new musical instrument or become a rower. Our Vesey family benefit from a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities from debating, drama, music and chess to rugby, hockey, cricket and netball.
