Grey Court School is a mixed-sex High School Academy in London, England. It is twinned with Alexander-von-Humboldt-Gymnasium in Konstanz, Germany. In September 2014, a new Sixth Form Centre opened for Grey Court's founding sixth form students. [1]

The school occupies a large acreage in Ham, with playing fields and tennis courts. The school's current head teacher is Maggie Bailey.

History[edit]

The school was opened in 1956 to provide education for the children of the newly constructed Estate. The school was built in the grounds of the Georgian Grey Court House from which it took its name. The house itself was renamed Newman House after Cardinal Newman, who lived there as a child in the early 19th century.[2]

Notable former pupils[edit]
