We promote hard work, enthusiasm, determination and a willingness to throw yourself into everything on offer and give it your best shot. We teach your child how to learn, so that their intellectual growth and development can continue independently outside the classroom. Inspiring teachers and regular field trips bring your child’s subjects to life and ensure a first class academic, social and cultural experience. Beyond the classroom, there is plenty for your child to get involved in; from sports to the arts to the more cerebral, this is a school where everyone represents the school at something: drama, football, gymnastics, singing, skiing, debating, netball, hockey, engineering events, scuba diving, chef competitions, cross country, mock trials, language competitions, musical productions.

Welcome from the Head

Vicky Buckman

Welcome to Stamford High School, were we believe that anything is possible;

Our pupils 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, the girls learn in an environment designed to further their intellectual, creative, practical and social development.

Our School is a caring, friendly and happy place, where pupils thrive because they are supported academically, socially and emotionally.

We want our pupils 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.

Learning and Education

The students here 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.

Learning and Education

Pastoral Care

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.

Pastoral Care

Don't just take our word for it...

Opportunities and successes and something for everyone. Pupils positively fizz when they talk about the sheer fun of all the opportunities they have.
