Streatham and Clapham High School
About Streatham and Clapham High School
Streatham & Clapham High School is an independent, academically selective school for girls aged 3–18, offering an inspiring, enlightened and intellectually challenging education in a lively, vibrant and warmly supportive environment. Girls aged 3-11 attend the Nursery and Prep School, located in spacious buildings with outstanding facilities in Streatham Hill. The Senior School inhabits a four-acre site focused on an imposing 1930s building in a delightfully tranquil and leafy oasis of south London, where the soundscape is dominated by birdsong.
Streatham & Clapham High School is a vibrant, exciting and fulfilling place in which to work. The leadership team of the School promotes a vision of education that is liberal and humane in its approach, which aims to invigorate tradition with innovation, and which is receptive to new ideas and contributions. The teaching staff is highly professional and enthusiastic, and includes some world leaders in their academic disciplines. All members of staff value the breadth of education offered by the School and enrich their teaching and broader contributions to the School with their own personal interests and experiences.
The School is characterised by a warm, welcoming and supportive atmosphere. Members of the Common Room are supportive of each other, and this ethos of support is reflected by the ease of access that all members of staff have to the leadership team. Relationships with pupils are respectful, purposeful and warm. New colleagues are supported through a personalised induction programme.
All members of staff benefit from a highly regarded central training and personal development programme and access to a GDST-wide virtual learning environment that gives opportunity for discussion and exchange of information with colleagues in other Trust schools. Staff are also entitled to an interest-free season ticket loan, reduced BUPA subscription, and free lunches during term time.
