The Friends of
Handsworth Grammar School

Treasure the memories of friends made and time spent at Handsworth Grammar School

Dear Friend

Wherever you are and whatever you are doing you always treasure the memories of friends made and time spent during school days. Parents, teachers , staff and others also remember their association with the school.

Why not join the Friends and keep in touch with your colleagues past and present as well as a wide range of people who are all interested in the school, its past and its future. Membership costs are shown below.


Did you know?

In July a Friends dinner is held in Big School which old boys and friends of the school can meet up, swap stories and reminisce about their association with the school. Some recent pictures can be viewed here.

During the past few years the Friends of Handsworth Grammar School have raised funds to:

  • fund a new £1.1 million Sports Hall which is now in full use by the School and local community groups.
  • support the development of a new Learning Hub which encompasses an exciting library and ICT suite.
  • support ‘The Bridge’ development – creating accommodation and ICT facilities for the 6th form students.
  • help fundraise for the new Sixth Form Centre.

If you would like to be involved fundraising or would like further information about becoming a Friend, please contact Michael Hart, Chair of The Friends via the contact us page.
