  • Sydenham High School is an independent day school for girls aged 4 to 18 in South East London. The school was founded in 1887 and prides itself on 'enriching young minds in a way that will endure a lifetime.'

    Headmistress Katharine Woodcock says: 'Sydenham High is selective and diverse, welcoming girls with wide-ranging talents and backgrounds into a close community that is large enough to offer choice and flexibility but compact enough to ensure that no girl is overlooked.'

    'Self-belief and happiness, alongside a ‘can do’ approach to every aspect of school life, enable our girls to thrive and succeed and they leave us equipped with the skills and confidence to prosper in their future lives. We believe our pupils deserve the highest standards of classroom practice, as well as exciting, challenging and enriching co-curricular opportunities, in an inspirational environment where they can be themselves and learn to be independent, resilient and confident.'

    'Girls at Sydenham High are ambitious and open minded and possess an inner strength and necessary self belief to outstrip all expectations. They are also well rounded, happy, down to earth, and much more besides.'
