We want our girls to be enthusiastic, hard-working, determined and ready to get involved with everything we offer. We encourage them to think independently, to take ownership of their learning and to aspire to be the very best they can be. Within a sound framework of pastoral care and development, our girls know that they have the skills and attributes to face the future with confidence.
Stamford High School aspires to develop the individuality of our pupils, giving them the confidence and ambition to strive for higher goals. Our girls receive a first-class academic, social and cultural experience, provided within a caring and friendly environment.
Learning and Education
At Stamford High School, girls are enthusiastic about learning in all its facets. Whether in our well-furnished language labs, our beautiful, spacious art rooms, or in our science rooms – complete with DNA lab – the girls learn in an environment designed to further their intellectual, creative, practical and social development. The girls are well-supported by caring and dedicated teachers who feel privileged to help young minds flourish. Beyond the classroom, there are trips around the world to broaden cultural horizons and regular field trips to bring a subject to life. There is an extensive range of co-curricular activities, from sports to photography, which promote a love of learning beyond the academic programme.
Our School is a caring, friendly and happy place, where girls thrive because they are supported academically, socially and emotionally. Form Tutors, Heads of Year and the Heads of Pastoral Care work together to ensure that the girls are enjoying their education and any issues – whether friendship-based or difficulties with study – are identified quickly and addressed. Your daughter will find the School to be a place of comfort and security to which she will look forward to returning each day.
Opportunities and successes and something for everyone. Pupils positively fizz when they talk about the sheer fun of all the opportunities they have.Good Schools Guide 2017
