About Us



Aylesbury Grammar School was founded as a ‘free school’ for local students. Our commitment to this foundation and our values of ‘respect and aspire’ will drive our developments over the coming years. 

Our strong sense of history is combined with a dynamic and exciting future. Our vision is to make the School an international leader in learning and pastoral care, providing an unparalleled breadth of opportunity. Our community will flourish in all they do through excellence, humility and positive relationships, making a positive contribution to society. 

Our strategic direction for the future will require dynamic leadership and innovative thinking. As we grow and develop, we will engage further with our community and would welcome your involvement in helping make our future a reality. 

The Governors of AGS are enthusiastic and committed, supporting the school and its leadership, regularly monitoring and providing challenge. They meet termly in committees and as a full Governing Body. The three sub committees of the Governing Body are Learning & Teaching, Community & Development, and Resources including Finance.
