In the senior school, just as in the juniors, we firmly believe that happy girls are successful girls and we do our utmost to create a caring, sympathetic and inspiring environment in which everyone can thrive.
Our clear aim is to prepare the girls fully, so they can maximise their academic and personal potential. We also strive to give them a real desire to succeed and recognition of their own individual talents and capabilities.
We believe in the girls, we put trust in them and we have high expectations. As a result, Croydon High girls believe in themselves and, in an increasingly competitive world, self belief is a valuable commodity.
I am confident, I am capable, I aspire, I achieve…I am Croydon High
Performance is measured in many ways at Croydon High. The girls are monitored closely in terms of their academic development within a broad and well balanced curriculum. Expectations are made clear, high standards are maintained and there is a real sense of pride in the school and in the girls themselves.
This close monitoring allows us to ensure that individual girls are reaching the targets set for them and enables us to respond quickly if any issues arise. This emphasis on personalised learning, and the size of the school is a major benefit – individual attention and a real understanding of every girl's needs is possible and it’s something we take very seriously.
The girls benefit enormously from the facilities and opportunities that are available to them. A significant number of them perform at extremely high levels in both Music and Sport – something that is celebrated by everyone at the school.
In Drama, the girls’ performances are outstanding every year with many of them taking part in a wide range of productions both in and outside school. Similarly, our Art Department inspires an exceptional level of dedication with artwork of the highest standard on display at our Summer Show and – throughout the year – proudly presented around the school.
