Friends of Watford Grammar School for Boys

Welcome to the Friends of Watford Grammar School For Boys.

We are an association of parents and staff committed to supporting the school. As a parent you are automatically a member and we welcome your participation and input. We run a number of social events and provide refreshments at school concerts and plays. Our aim is to put the fun into fundraising and promote a sense of community within the school. The more parents we have supporting these events the more money we can donate to the school for the education of our boys. If you have any ideas for fundraising please click here

Second-hand uniform shop

The second-hand uniform shop is open every Wednesday, 3.15-4.30pm (term time only).

The shop opens one Saturday every half term (usually the first Saturday of the half term).

The shop is stocked with uniform and sports kit at very reasonable prices.The shop is upstairs in The School House which is by the sixth form centre. Coming from the school reception, turn left into the main hall and walk to the end of the corridor. The School House is the small building directly in front of you when you leave the main school building.

We accept cash and cards and all money raised goes to the school.

Donations of uniform and sportswear are always gratefully received. Please drop them into the school reception.
