We offer a variety of opportunities for you to do this, both formally and informally and we aim to make the whole process as simple and as stress-free as possible.

Applications during the COVID-19 emergency

Please be aware that despite the current unusual and challenging circumstances, we are still able to answer enquiries and accept applications for places at Croydon High School, subject to there being spaces available in the year groups required.

We are also able to arrange for on-line testing; however visits to the school are obviously not possible at the moment.

If you have any questions about the admissions process, please email our Admissions Department – admissions@cry.gdst.net


The very best way to view Croydon High School is with a personal tour on a normal school day. This enables you to see first-hand what our girls are like and to really soak up our unique atmosphere.

Junior School

Visiting the Junior School is an important part of the decision making process. Whether this is your daughter’s first step in to Nursery or Reception or if she is transferring from another school, this is your opportunity to see first-hand all that Croydon High Juniors can offer her.
