Headmaster's Welcome

Hm portrait mr cookseyIt is my privilege as the Headmaster to welcome you to the Watford Grammar School for Boys' website.

Our website aims to provide access to information for the entire School community which includes current and prospective students, parents and staff, as well as Old Boys, friends and partners of the School.

As you browse the site I hope you gain a sense of our dynamic and thriving community, with its enviable record of academic success and extensive range of extra-curricular activities. The dedicated and committed staff of the school provide a happy, caring and purposeful environment so that all of our students can embrace life with confidence, enthusiasm, creativity and curiosity.

Since our foundation in 1704, we have educated successive generations of independent and inquisitive young men whose accomplishments are manifold and impressive. Our students have contributed to the artistic, economic, scientific, spiritual and cultural wellbeing of this country and in some cases further afield, whilst leading lives of fulfilment and great joy. It is therefore a great honour to lead this school as we educate the next generation of boys.

Sperate parati.
