Sutton High School GDST is vibrant and diverse and our girls are proud to be part of our energetic and forward-thinking community. At the heart of our offer are the core values of courage, truth and joy.

We inspire and nurture individuality – you will not find a particular ‘type’ here. Our girls learn to find their own voice and be confident in who they are. Our size allows us to know and value every girl and we place enormous emphasis on both self-respect and respect for others. We know that girls do better when they feel better, so their wellbeing is our central focus. Every girl will find her own path here and she will forge that path with support from passionate and dedicated staff, committed to her success

Beyond the classroom, our girls’ experiences are vast and varied. From our many co-curricular clubs to a comprehensive schedule of day trips and residential visits as far-reaching as the Galapagos Islands, the opportunities are endless. As part of the Girls’ Day School Trust, our girls have access to a much wider network, which offers them trust-wide conferences, competitions and learning opportunities.

We want our school to be a place that ignites a spark in every girl so that she finds new interests and develops her individual talents.

Head’s Welcome

Our school is a place that ignites a spark in every girl, so that she finds new interests and develops her individual talents.  It is a place where girls are both interesting and interested.  Visitors often comment on the warmth and vibrancy of the school and the best way to experience this is to come and visit!

We very much look forward to welcoming you.

Academic Record:

We are proud of our students and our teachers for achieving outstanding results year after year.  In 2021 80% of A Levels were A*/A and 100% A*-C with a third of our pupils attaining a full suite of A* grades and 93% achieving offers from their first choice university.  For GCSEs in 2021 we achieved a 100% pass rate with over two-thirds of grades at Level 9 or 8 (A*-A) and 87% Level 9-7 (A*-B).


We have an enormous range of co-curricular clubs and societies, keeping girls inspired and engaged at every moment of the school day and beyond. There is always something extraordinary going on, from making ice cream using liquid nitrogen in STEM Society, to uncovering a journalistic scoop in Young Reporters.

Notable Achievements and Alumni:

Dr Helen Scales, Ruby Steel, Commander Maryla Ingham, Marianna Spring, Dr Nikita Kanani MBE, Holly Ramsey, Seunghye Park.

We have a wide range of inclusive sports clubs, alongside our high-performing sports teams. All girls can take part in sport if they want to do so and we have a busy fixtures schedule for hockey, netball, and cricket. We also run clubs for running, gymnastics, dance, yoga, athletics, swimming (in our own pool) and more. We want our girls to find their own kind of fitness and develop healthy lifelong habits for exercise and wellbeing.

In music, we have ensembles to suit every talent, an outstanding team of peripatetic teachers and a renowned Senior Choir who sang at Disneyland Paris as well as go on regular Choir Tours in Europe. Our Rock Room, Music Composition Suite and variety of ensemble and practice rooms mean that our girls can develop their musical skills in fabulous surroundings in The Dene Music Centre.

Opened in November 2018, our state-of-the-art performing arts venue hosts not only a comprehensive annual programme of concerts, but also at least two major drama productions every year, the most recent being We Will Rock You and The Snow Queen. Drama clubs, including script-writing, devising and physical theatre, as well as technical theatre, are very popular and take place in our newly renovated Study Studio.

With Courage With Truth With Joy


A girl who’s fiercely independent is a girl who believes in herself. And inspires others with that belief.

A girl who’s ready to discover what she wants. And then goes to get it.
