Croydon High School in Selsdon, Surrey is an exceptional independent day school for girls aged 3 to 18. Part of the Girls' Day School Trust, the leading network of independent girls schools in the UK, Croydon High has been delivering outstanding education to local girls since 1874.
The Junior School, on the same spacious 22 acre site as the seniors, shares the excellent sports facilities, with indoor swimming pool, tennis and netball courts and a floodlit all weather artificial hockey pitch. Visitors remark on how happy, confident and well-mannered the girls are and on their sense of purpose and focus on their work.
Girls join Nursery aged 3 for mornings or full days, in recently refurbished classrooms offering a warm and caring environment where learning is both challenging and fun. Moving on to Reception, the acquisition of literacy and numeracy competence is promoted, whilst building confidence and finding out what sparks each girl's imagination.
Light, bright purpose-built classrooms and bespoke Music and Drama suites are well resourced and spacious. In the innovative 4D room, a combination of sound, light, music and touch inspires junior school pupils to produce wonderful written and creative work.
Thanks to a legacy from a former Music teacher, all girls in Year 3 have the opportunity to learn a stringed instrument with free tuition for a year and many continue with this. Many also attend the wide range of extra-curricular clubs. Pastoral care is an absolute priority with the school supporting girls as they develop socially, always encouraging them to 'have a go'. Success and effort are celebrated equally.
Inspirational teaching and a focus on the individual maximises potential and prepares girls academically and emotionally to make a seamless transition to the senior school in Year 7.
