Staff are supported by a Senior Leadership Team (SLT) whose work is overseen by the Headmistress.

As a part of the GDST, the school’s performance is also overseen by the Directors and CEO of the Trust.

Our local Governors offer guidance, advice and a critical oversight, bringing expertise from their varied areas of specialism. We are extremely fortunate to benefit from the support of such a committed and capable team.

One of our current members of staff writes about their experience teaching here……… Croydon High’s way – and the GDST way – is so exactly representative of an ideal workplace, in my mind. The way Croydon High is concerned for mental and physical wellbeing of pupils AND staff, the way you’re open to change, the way you’re welcoming to everyone from any and all backgrounds, the way you encourage healthy discussions around accountability and how to make progress and improve… Working in this kind of environment is a DREAM.
