Watford Boys Grammar School grew from the Free School, a charity school for 60 pupils founded by Dame Elizabeth Fuller in 1704. The Girls and Boys schools became separate foundations for in 1881, and the boys’ school moved to its present site in 1912.
Ideally located close to the town centre. Watford Boys Grammar School, with its long neo-Georgian main block and the adjacent Master’s House, was used as a location for many of the external and internal shots in the filming of The History Boys. Justin Craig courses are run in the new Sixth Form Centre, with students able to use the extensive school grounds during breaks.
At the Watford Grammar School for Boys, we do not offer meals and recommend students either bring a packed lunch or buy something locally – there is a wide array of options on the doorstep including, restaurants, delis and sandwich shops. There is a small snack shop onsite selling sweets, drinks and savoury snacks.
