The GDST

The GDST, which has pioneered the education of girls and young women since its foundation in 1872, is the leading network of independent girls’ schools in the UK, with approximately 4,000 staff and nearly 20,000 pupils in its 24 schools and two academies throughout England and Wales. About 8% of all the girls in independent education in the UK are at GDST schools. GDST schools are non-denominational, and pupils have always been admitted irrespective of background or beliefs. All but two of the schools educate girls from the age of 3 or 4 to 18. 

Streatham & Clapham High School is a member school of the Girls’ Day School Trust, and as such the Trust holds legal responsibility for its operations. The Chief Executive Officer of the Trust is based at GDST Head Office, 100 Rochester Row, London, SW1P 1JP (telephone: 020 7393 6666, email:info@wes.gdst.net).
