The Grange School is a coeducational community school located in Runcorn in the English county of Cheshire. It is an all-through school providing primary and secondary education for pupils aged 3 to 16.
Previously The Grange Comprehensive School, in June 2007 plans were announced for the school to close and to merge with The Heath School in 2012. However the Education & Skills Select Committee raised objections to the proposal and it was decided that the school would join the adjacent Grange Nursery School, The Grange Infant School and The Grange Junior School to be an all-through school. Following improved examination results in 2008, the plan to merge with The Heath School was cancelled and the school became all-through in September 2010.
