Handsworth Grange Community Sports College also known as Handsworth Grange School is a coeducational comprehensive school in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England. The school, which is a Sports College, educates over 1,000 pupils. The building was previously the site of Beaver Hill Comprehensive, but the school changed its name when it amalgamated with Brook School.
The present headteacher is Anne Quaile. School was designated "good" by OFSTED in 2012. GCSE results have risen for 6 years in a row making the school one of the most improved schools in Sheffield over the last few years.
Handsworth Grange is one of several schools in the city to house a multi-functional Sports College. A new gym was adapted as part of a national inclusive fitness initiative to enable people with disabilities to have the same facilities as those who are able bodied. It was opened, in July 2005, by the Minister of Sport Richard Caborn. A number of summer numeracy schools have been established to bridge the gap in maths standards between primary and secondary levels. Secretary of State for Education and Employment David Blunkett visited the school, in order to examine their scheme, in August 1999.
