Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School

Welcome from the Head of School

Sir Henry Floyd is a co-educational grammar school that does not stand still. We deliver a contemporary, forward-looking and challenging curriculum, which continues to reimagine, refresh and reinvent.

We innovate and invest, to ensure we deliver a grammar school education of today.

Our staff and students belong to a diverse community of courageous, empathetic and creative learners, with a shared mission of achieving exceptional outcomes. Our school has an undeniable sense of community and we are immensely proud of our staff and students’ desire to excel. Our results are excellent, but our motivation also stems from providing an educational experience that fosters belonging.

We nurture a culture of psychological safety, so that our inclusive community is not afraid of challenge; we believe that taking risks and pushing boundaries to explore new things takes courage. It’s about togetherness – building an environment that spurs each other on to achieve. Developing ‘dare to try’ attitudes will ensure that our staff remain at the forefront of education and our students leave Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School as enterprising young adults.

Excel beyond the school gates:
We have created an environment where you can launch an exciting journey. You will be challenged, but given every opportunity to succeed, not only in the classroom but, ultimately, in adult life.

Above all, we want everyone to thrive at school. We place paramount importance on wellbeing, supporting students at every step with professional mentoring and regular touchpoints with pastoral leads. We want you to leave school with your head held high.
