Parents' Society

The SHFGS Parents’ Society is an active and vital part of life at Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School. Membership consists of parents and carers of children attending the school and a staff representative. New members are always very welcome - if you are interested in joining or would like ideas of how you can help, please contact us at

We organise events for both students and parents to enjoy with the aim of raising funds to enable SHFGS to buy items not covered by the school budget.  In the past, the SHFGS Parents’ Society have funded IT equipment (please see the photos below), the fitness room in the new sports hall, multimedia equipment, a cricket pitch and cover, food technology and DT equipment, and more. We liaise with the school to agree on what we are fundraising for and this year we raised more than £10,000, concentrating our efforts on supporting the school’s iPad initiative, raising funds to purchase a set of iPads along with a storage, charging and maintenance trolley, ensuring that they can be delivered and used in any part of the school fully charged and up to date.

Please find below further information on forthcoming events and more. We would love to hear from you and would welcome any feedback and offers of help.

Forthcoming Events

Quiz Night

Now's the time to book your places at the upcoming Parents Society Quiz Night on the 17th of March. Come and enjoy a delicious curry with us, cooked by the school catering team and a fistful of fiendishly difficult questions (in fact they're not all that difficult) and a couple of fun twists.


We organise 2 raffles each year with a selection of large and small prizes. We are always on the lookout for new and interesting ideas for our prizes.

Ongoing Fundraising

We have several ongoing fundraising activities help us support the school every day.

The Giving Machine
Support the school simply by shopping on the internet. By starting your online shopping trip through The Giving Machine web site a percentage of the money that you spend is donated to the school. This simple measures costs you nothing as the donation is made by the companies that you buy from.

How can you help?

The SHFGS Parents’ Society is run by parents for the benefit of all our children and the school. It relies on help volunteered by parents. There are a number of ways parents can be involved:

First and foremost, please support the events and activities!

Join the Committee
Come along to one of our meetings - new, fresh ideas are always welcome. We meet twice per term to organise our events.

Become A Helper
Add your name to the Helpers Lists - a list of parents who have volunteered to help at events, if called on. If you can help at one event, or all events, any help is very much appreciated.

Raffle Prizes
Do you work for or know someone who would be able to provide a raffle prize; it could be goods, vouchers or services.

Do you have any contacts that you are happy to share for obtaining discounts or supplies of goods and services that may be useful to the Parents’ Society, e.g. supplies/suppliers of drinks and catering, entertainers, advertising services, raffle prizes.

We always need new ideas, so if you have attended successful events elsewhere which you think would suit SHFGS, let us know.

And don't forget, by joining The Giving Machine and the Flottery you can support the school every day.
