Are there any grammartical rules that guide the use of ''toward'' and ''towards'' with ''s'.'
This is a British English versus American English thing. In British English, "towards" is more common. In American English, "toward" is most common.
Both appear in the dictionary. And, of course, American dictionaries favor "toward". I don't have a British dictionary to check.
Use the variant prefered in your region and be consistent.
