Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School

Parents' Society

SHFGS Parents’ Society is an active and vital part of life at Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School. Membership consists of parents and carers of children attending the school and a staff representative. Our current committee Chair is parent Deborah Yerby.

We organise fundraising activities and events for both students and parents to support SHFGS in buying items not covered by the school budget.

In the past, the SHFGS Parents’ Society have funded IT equipment, the fitness room in the new sports hall, full sets of iPads and Chromebooks complete with charging trolley, food technology and PA equipment, upgrades to the school canteen, furniture for the library and a video camera for the theatre.

Our most recent donation funded the purchase and construction of the school’s new indoor climbing wall.

New members are always very welcome - if you are interested in joining or would like to know how you can help, please contact us at

How to support the Parents' Society

We have several ongoing fundraising initiatives that help us support the school every day and that are quick and easy to sign up for:

School Lottery

Tickets cost just £1 per week which are entered into a draw with a guaranteed winner from within our school community every week. The more people that participate, the bigger this guaranteed prize becomes and the more money raised for our school. For much less than the cost of a cup of coffee every week, and from the comfort of your own sofa, you could be a lucky winner! On top of the weekly prize from the SHFGS lottery pot, you will also be entered into a separate draw with a chance to win an amazing £25,000 EVERY WEEK!

The Giving Machine

Generate funds for the school as you shop on the internet. By starting your online shopping trip through The Giving Machine website, a percentage of the money that you spend is donated to the school. This simple measure costs you nothing as the donation is made by the companies that you buy from. For more information and to sign up visit:
