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.[1]

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.[2] However the Education & Skills Select Committee raised objections to the proposal[3] 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.[4] Following improved examination results in 2008, the plan to merge with The Heath School was cancelled[5] and the school became all-through in September 2010.
