Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School is a very special place, providing an outstanding, academically challenging and well-rounded education for able boys and girls from Birmingham and across the Midlands since the 16th Century. Academically, we are in the top 25 state schools for performance at A level: 83% A*-B (2016) with typically around two thirds of students attaining A*/A at GCSE. Almost three quarters of students going on to university at 18 study at the prestigious Russell Group universities. We offer a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities from debating and chess to rugby and rowing. Our ‘Vesey Experience’ is much prized by all stakeholders.
We very much want to keep in touch with former students, and it is anticipated that this alumni site will prove to be a far-reaching network, providing great ways for former students to keep up to date with the School and its progress, as well as offering excellent social and networking opportunities.
