The original school was demolished in 2001, with the new school building being constructed and completed in 2002. Sir Graham Balfour School currently has 900 students. It achieved specialist Maths and Computing School status from September 2006. The current headteacher is Mrs Lesley Beck.
Sir Graham Balfour School also offers post-16 education. The sixth form is an integral part of the Stafford Collegiate which involves all Stafford High Schools and Stafford College.
On July 22, David Wright retired as Head Teacher, and Lesley Beck took over.
In May 2005, then-headteacher David Hill banned charity wristbands due to uniform regulations. This resulted in some students protesting on the school tennis grounds. Police were called after students began leaving the school grounds. Hill later retracted the ban on the bands.
