Description of the school – Watford Grammar School for Boys

Watford Grammar School for Boys is a larger than average partially selective school, with boys admitted from a range of religious and cultural backgrounds. A significant minority of students are bi-lingual. The proportions of students eligible for free school meals, with learning difficulties and disabilities, and statements of special educational need are low. The school has had specialist Science College status since 2002. Students enter the school with attainment which is well above average but there is a wider range of ability than is the case in many grammar schools.
