The Vesey Experience

Founded in 1527, Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School is a very special place, providing an outstanding and inspiring academically challenging and well-rounded education for able boys and girls from Birmingham and across the Midlands.

Academically, we are one of the top performing state schools nationally: ‘A’ level, 80% A*-B (2017)  and at GCSE (2017), 72% of grades attained were Grade 7 or better in the reformed  English Language and Mathematics and 70% of grades were awarded A*/A in the unreformed GCSE qualifications. From our Sixth Form, almost three quarters of our students go on to study at the prestigious Russell Group universities. We offer a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities from debating, music and chess to netball, rugby and rowing. Our ‘Vesey Experience’ is much prized by all stakeholders.
