Streatham and Clapham High School

In their own words

Our focus on achieving beyond expectation

Inspiring, enlightened and intellectually rigorous — this is the education offered by Streatham & Clapham High School. Our pupils prosper in a vibrant setting that provides challenge and width of opportunity in a warmly supportive and enabling environment. They thrive on account of the school’s family ethos, which allows them to be known, valued and nurtured as individuals. Equally, they draw strength and derive wisdom from the school’s rich social and cultural mix. Put simply, ours is an exceptional learning community.

Our exceptional pastoral care within a ‘family’ school

We do not view outstanding pastoral care as an ‘add-on’ to our academic programme. Neither do we believe that a ‘hothouse’ atmosphere is desirable or healthy. Girls achieve best if they are happy and settled in their social relationships. Hence the ‘family’ ethos of our school. The way in which we nurture and value individuals is intrinsic to our girls’ success. This level of care and personal attention stimulates each of our pupils to make rapid progress. All members of staff, up to the Head Master, are easily accessible to pupils, providing for an environment in which pupils feel warmly supported and valued.

The admissions process uses the online ISEB Common Pre Test (sometimes referred to as the Common Entrance Exam). This exam has a specific format and structure, includes a range of predictable questions types and is taken in an online/computer environment. Students should pay particular attention to the Non-Verbal and Verbal-Reasoning modules, as these sections may include question types they have never encountered before.
