Welcome to The Grey Coat Hospital, 
a Specialist Language College and Training School

Letter from the Head

Welcome to The Grey Coat Hospital website. It is a privilege and an honour to lead such a historic school with such an exciting future.

We are a Church of England school with strong values, committed to ensuring that every student is known as a person, develops the knowledge, skills and qualities to lead successful and fulfilling lives, and is empowered to do so.

I am proud to lead a dedicated and talented team of professionals who offer the students a rich and challenging learning journey, which enables them to develop a love of learning and fulfil their potential.

We believe that languages are the key to the future, and that proficiency in a foreign language will give our students the linguistic skills and the appreciation and understanding of different cultures, which will open doors for them.

At The Grey Coat Hospital, we aim to be the very best school for our students. We are committed to excellent professional development for all staff to enable us to achieve the highest standards in everything we do, and to maintain a reflective, creative and dynamic environment in which all our students may thrive.

The Grey Coat Hospital is a truly unique school. I hope the website gives you a flavour of life within our school and community.

If you have any questions, which are not answered here, or any suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Yours faithfully,

Siân Maddrell
