Stamford High School

School Values and Aims

Stamford High School provides an excellent education for girls aged 11 to 18. Sixth Form teaching is carried out jointly with Stamford School.

The school is still on the original site of its foundation in 1877. Many developments over the years have produced high standard facilities that support a full range of GCSE and A Level subjects. Specialist rooms give girls the opportunity to pursue a wide curriculum that includes the study of performing arts, in a dedicated drama studio, and technology in a well-resourced workshop. There are extensive facilities for ICT and modern languages. Almost all of our girls are able to move on to the higher education course of their choice.

Music plays a large part in the extra-curricular life of the school. There is a mixed orchestra, a wind band and a choral society at the senior end of the school, and several other musical groups operating at all age levels. Drama productions are staged throughout the year and there is wide participation in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. Girls compete in several major team games and there is the opportunity for them to participate in individual sports. There is a full activity programme at the weekend. Girls have the opportunity to experience and pursue a wide range of subjects and activities to a high level in an environment that encourages the development of the individual.
