Aylesbury Grammar School enjoys an exceptional reputation for achievement and learning developed since our foundation more than 420 years ago.
Our common goal is for the school to be a leader in learning, with an unparalleled breadth of opportunity, within a caring and supportive environment. A School proud of our past but positioned to define our future, with great emphasis placed on our core values, to ‘respect and aspire’.
Our purpose, to which we as a School community dedicate ourselves, is to inspire and support all our students to enable them to flourish throughout their lives.
Our vision is to provide an education for our community which is rich in the quality of opportunity, striving to become international leaders in academic and pastoral development. We will be true to our foundation as a ‘Free School for Aylesbury’ giving every student, irrespective of background and circumstance, an opportunity to flourish.
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 every individual to develop into an exceptional yet unique young adult.
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 and enviable environment of care and belonging. 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 they do, happy in who they are 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 and their character 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 share in our values, to ‘Respect & Aspire’.
