"There is no one way to be a Croydon High girl"

There is no one way to be a Croydon High girl and our girls learn that right from Junior School. Every opportunity, every success, as well as every failed attempt, teaches them about themselves. With a clear sense of personal identity, understanding their strengths and weaknesses, they embrace new experiences with true confidence.

“I really feel the
teachers know and
care about her.”

—2018 parent survey

“Our girls are confident. That is not to say they are all extroverts or natural performers but they all feel comfortable in their own skin and that comes across when they interact with visitors.”

—Mrs Macmillan, Admissions

From performing lines to a packed audience nine weeks into school to pitching their business to investors on our Year 6 Enterprise Evening, our girls know there is no glass ceiling. With the only dedicated Junior School careers’ programme we know of alongside a STEM provision and Computer Science taught as a specialist subject from Nursery, our girls leave Junior School real-world ready.

We value every one of our girls as an individual, her happiness is paramount. At every stage girls are encouraged to stretch themselves beyond age expectations and are challenged and supported every step of the way.

“Your view is infinitely precious. It doesn’t have to conform to anyone else’s ideals. Let it be your own.”

—Year 6 pupil speaking about independent learning in the Junior School

“Our girls are bursting with potential and it is a privilege to help them explore and develop”

—Mrs Pickett, Early Years Teacher
