Revert Adams' Grammar's Name Change
For those of you who are not yet aware, Adams' Grammar School has recently announced that, as of January 1st, 2018, the school's name will be changed to Haberdashers' Adams. While this is intended to reconnect the school with its history with the Worshipful Company of Haberdashers, it will disadvantage future leavers as they will no longer have the benefits of having been to a "Grammar School" on their CV or other applications. The school already has enough connection with the Haberdashers with the Year 7 annual trip to Habs Hall and the annual visit from the Haberdashers to the school.
The acronym "AGS" is so much more than a name to the students of the school. It is a symbol of great memories and a great education. It cannot just be changed at a moment's notice without consultation with the students and staff of the school, many of whom are not happy with the change.
This petition will be presented to the headmaster of the school upon the receipt of 600+ signatures. Support for this campaign would be greatly appreciated in an attempt to #SaveOurAGS.
