Croydon High School extends a warm welcome to you. We’d be delighted to show you what makes us stand out today as a school for inspirational young women. Dorinda Neligan, the school’s founder, used Ivy leaves in the girls hair to distinguish them from the crowd. Today, her legacy lies in the motivated, ambitious and confident girls we are proud to educate.

A diverse community brings a variety of experiences to and from the school. Our intake into the senior school is comprised of a large number of primary and prep schools, alongside our own junior school girls. Correspondingly, talents are identified as they emerge and nurtured in every direction for every girl. The results, exams or otherwise, speak for themselves. Whether it be meetings at Downing Street, finals at the Olympic Park, marching banners at the Royal Albert Hall, photographing the local Mayor, singing at the Royal Academy, treading the boards at the Edinburgh Fringe or launching your own tech company, justified ambition is enabled at Croydon High School.

Please do come and visit. Your tour guide may not boast about the fact she might be a poetry prize winner, an accomplished gymnast, a Team GB athlete, a Diploma level Harpist, a prize winning debater, a Victoria and Albert recognised artist… the list goes on. Even if she doesn’t tell you these things, you will probably sense that there is something special about her. What she probably will do, however, is celebrate her peers’ achievements, large and small.

That’s what makes her a Croydon High girl.
