John Hampden Grammar School (Boys)

JHGS is, simply put, an outstanding boys’ grammar school and one I feel enormously privileged to lead. The ethos, developed over many generations, is unique. It is based upon mutual respect, high expectations and support for one another.

At JHGS we aim for excellence in everything we do, be it academic performance, sporting or cultural achievement or the way we develop leadership and team skills. Exceptional standards, breadth, balance and self-confidence typify JHGS students. We are proud of our commitment to boys’ education, structuring our lessons and provision to meet the specific needs and uncover the potential of our young men. Almost all our students stay at the school to complete A Levels where we consistently dominate national and local league tables.  From the website and prospectus you will gain some understanding of life at JHGS but it is only by visiting that you will appreciate the calm, focused, friendly and purposeful atmosphere that distinguishes this remarkable school.

I look forward to meeting you.
