Here's a GridView header that contains a StackPanel with text and an image. This Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) is a simplified version of the GridView used in GroupDetail page of the Microsoft Visual Studio Grid App template.

<GridView x:Name="itemGridView"
          ItemsSource="{Binding Source={StaticResource itemsViewSource}}"
          ItemTemplate="{StaticResource Standard500x130ItemTemplate}">

        <StackPanel Width="480" Margin="0,4,14,0">
            <TextBlock Text="{Binding Subtitle}" Margin="0,0,18,20" 
                       Style="{StaticResource SubheaderTextStyle}" MaxHeight="60"/>
            <Image Source="{Binding Image}" Height="400" Margin="0,0,18,20" 
                   Stretch="UniformToFill" AutomationProperties.Name="{Binding Title}"/>
            <TextBlock Text="{Binding Description}" Margin="0,0,18,0" 
                       Style="{StaticResource BodyTextStyle}"/>


By default, the header is shown at the top for a ListView, and on the left for a GridView. If the FlowDirection property is set to RightToLeft, the header is shown on the right for a GridView.

You can use a data template for the Header by setting the HeaderTemplate property.
