At Groton, you will know and be known by each of the interesting people within our community.
Our school has always seen itself as an extended family. We are purposefully small. Here students and teachers from a wide array of backgrounds, interests, and considerable talents know each other well. Like a family, we share a common commitment of one to another and of each to the whole. You cannot help but learn about yourself and the wider world through friendships built at Groton School.

Eighth Grade at Groton

Groton is one of the few secondary schools that still offers an eighth grade. Most students enter in ninth or tenth grade (Third or Fourth Form), but we accept about thirty eighth graders (Second Formers) each year. Our youngest students are closely supervised in a structured environment, build a unique bond, and enjoy the extra steppingstone that a nurturing eighth grade provides.
