Empowering girls to pursue ideals and knowledge unafraid

Inspiring, enlightened and intellectually rigorous — this is the education offered by Streatham & Clapham High School.  Our pupils prosper in a vibrant setting that provides challenge and width of opportunity in a warmly supportive and enabling environment. They thrive on account of the school’s family ethos, which allows them to be known, valued and nurtured as individuals. Equally, they draw strength and derive wisdom from the school’s rich social and cultural mix.  Put simply, ours is an exceptional learning community.

I believe that all members of the school should be inspired to outperform expectations on a daily basis. The pursuit of excellence is thus our defining feature. This is reflected in our examination results, which place us in the top 25% of independent schools nationally. But we nurture our pupils to attain success across the widest spectrum of activity, extending far beyond the conventional ‘academic’ horizon. In so doing, they learn the beauty of reason, the allure of the aesthetic, and the vitality of the physical. Our pupils, whether they are very able or late developers, learn to navigate the landscape of the human spirit and achieve beyond the realms of expectation.

At the heart of our pupils’ success are our expert and alert pastoral systems. The care we extend to all pupils enables them to make outstanding progress, both academically and in their personal development. We strive to empower them to pursue ideals and knowledge unafraid. As a result, our pupils mature into confident, accomplished and well-adjusted young women, prepared for the challenges of university education, their future careers, and everything else that their future lives may hold.

Only by visiting the school will you experience for yourself the vibrant, purposeful and happy culture of Streatham & Clapham High and our focus on supporting all pupils to achieve beyond their potential. Do come: I look forward to welcoming you.
