School History

At Sir Henry Floyd Grammar we don't stand still.

We continue to reimagine.

We continue to refresh.

We continue to reinvent.

Our school was built in 1963, meaning that it is 'younger' than some schools. However, what we lack in age we make up for in innovation and investment to ensure that we deliver a contemporary grammar school education that equips students with the knowledge and skills they need to thrive in today's fast-paced world.
