Our Motto: The Grammar School of Today.

Our Vision: To pioneer a grammar school education which equips the visionaries of tomorrow.

Our Mission: We deliver a contemporary grammar school education which challenges and inspires everyone to achieve exceptional outcomes. We build a diverse community of courageous, empathetic and creative learners.  Our Floydian Foci nurture an environment that sparks our imaginations and encourages us to ‘think big’, both inside and outside the classroom. At Sir Henry Floyd, challenge is welcomed. We motivate everyone to push their boundaries, explore brave choices and emerge as ethical leaders.

Our Floydian Scholar values underpin everything we do at SHFGS:  

We build resilience... 

Bouncing back takes courage. We develop resolute mindsets and foster a willingness to take calculated risks, without fear of failure.  

We encourage reciprocity... 

There is strength in the pack. We champion the exchange of wisdom and guidance between all community members, to ensure that we grow both individually and as a collective.  

We grow resourcefulness... 

Deeper roots; greater fruits. We motivate ourselves to investigate every resource and inspiration available to us in our pursuit of fresh knowledge.  

We nurture reflection... 

Thinking back is moving forwards. We invite all Floydians to be mindful and self-aware, and to  continually adapt our practice, balancing the pursuit of excellence and wellbeing.  

We treasure respect... 

The little things that go a long way. We expect everyone to be courteous and kind at all times,  and to appreciate and celebrate the differences that make us unique.  


“The ‘Floydian Scholar’ values permeate every

aspect of school life and unite the community.”
