Welcome from the Headteacher

Ms Jeanette Cochrane Headteacher

Our mission at Sir Henry Floyd Grammar school is to equip our students with a grammar school education, ensuring that they emerge from their time at our school as true visionaries for the future.

A Sir Henry Floyd student is one who will excel academically, culturally, socially and emotionally from studying in Aylesbury’s only grammar school that serves children of all genders. Every day, I encounter positive young people who are determined to grow their knowledge in resourceful ways. Our diverse community of inquisitive young minds allows an environment in which our students can thrive. Ours is an environment that both delivers and inspires, as evinced through our academic attainment.

Yes, our results are excellent but our motivation is not simply steered by league tables. We are committed to providing an educational experience that also allows students the stimuli to spark their imagination and encourage them to ‘think big’, both inside and outside the classroom.

We are not afraid of challenges, we believe that taking risks and pushing boundaries to explore new things takes courage. Developing a ‘dare to try’ attitude will ensure that our students leave Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School as enterprising young adults.

Our high standards mirror the expectations we have of ourselves as individuals; as both staff and students. The environment in which we all learn and work is one that allows a true exchange of wisdom and guidance, in a way that is unique to our school.

A Sir Henry Floyd student is one who is reflective, resourceful, respectful, resilient and reciprocal, the attributes that we hone and nurture through a contemporary, forward-thinking education.
