From the Headmaster


Aylesbury Grammar School is an outstanding school with a reputation for achievement and learning. Our vision is to provide an exceptional education for our students, rich in opportunities within an inspiring and supportive environment, developing the character of our young men in preparation for their future.

We want our students to be challenged to achieve their very best, to flourish in all they do and to share a positive outlook with others. We pride ourselves on the wealth of learning experiences available allowing each individual to develop into an exceptional yet unique young man.

The school has a long history that is celebrated in all aspects of school life, none more so than in our house system which engenders a healthy level of competition. The enjoyment of learning is enhanced by an exceptional range of curricular and extra-curricular opportunities which inspire our students to participate in school life. Every individual is respected and encouraged to thrive in all that he does, happy in who he is and with the humility to share in others’ success.

Our modern world brings many challenges and opportunities for our students and we aim to nurture their habits of learning so that they leave the school fully prepared to embark on their journey to become the leaders of tomorrow. Our students are, for many years to come, most fond of their school with many returning to celebrate and attend the growing number of Old Aylesburian events.

We hope our website will give you a sense of what it means to learn at Aylesbury Grammar School and invite you to join us in our aim to ‘Respect & Aspire’.
