Staff vacancies

Aylesbury High School (AHS) is a forward-thinking girls’ grammar school that values both academic & pastoral excellence and co-curricular opportunities.

Our aim at AHS is to Inspire every student to seek Challenge, realise their potential and Prepare for the world of today and tomorrow, and this is incorporated into our school motto of ‘Prepare, Challenge and Inspire.

Our students benefit from their education being at the only girls’ grammar in North Buckinghamshire, whilst having the geographical advantage of having our brother school, Aylesbury Grammar School (AGS), literally across the road. This ‘best of both’ gives an unparalleled breadth of opportunities and experiences that allows our students to thrive.

Our academic success is long-established, with excellent exam results that place us amongst the best schools in the county and the country – and we are a school that constantly looks to improve.  Whilst these outstanding academic successes are important to us as they give our students a wealth of choices, we are so much more than this.

Our values of Confidence, Respect, Engagement, Aspiration, Teamwork and Enjoyment are embodied in ‘CREATE’  and we want all of our community to experience, develop and demonstrate these both within the curriculum and through our extensive co-curricular offering.  Our students evidence these values on a daily basis, they are our greatest ambassadors.

We are a busy school, we are an inclusive school, we are a girls’ school where students can take risks without a fear of failure, and we are a high-achieving school.  Above all, we are a happy school with a terrific future ahead of us.
