Our Senior School (Years 7 to 11) has around 600 girls who use the main school buildings for most of their lessons and activities.

From the minute your daughter joins Sheffield Girls' Senior School, we will encourage her to begin thinking about her strengths and talents and how we can develop these in preparation for her bright future.

Our long history of academic excellence has been and continues to be achieved by focussing on each girl’s potential and supporting her throughout her time at Sheffield High School for Girls. The atmosphere in and out of the classroom is lively, exciting and challenging, whilst at the same time supportive and nurturing. Our academic results speak for themselves – we are consistently top of the league tables for the region. 

Our girls do well because they are well-motivated and work hard but, more importantly, because our outstanding teachers will get to know her inside out; understanding her as an individual and ensuring that they get the best from her. We will extend her in those subjects in which she excels and support her in those where she is less confident.

We will develop in your daughter a confidence and self-belief that she can achieve whatever she sets her mind to, and the skills to enable her to fulfil her dreams and aspirations. Your daughter will learn to explore, question and express her own views across the wide range of subjects we offer, and the positive culture in the classroom will encourage her to give of her best.

As in all sections of the school, each girl has a form tutor and a Head of Year, as part of a larger pastoral care team, who look after her day-to-day welfare and lessons take place in bright, well-equipped classrooms. Girls also benefit from a range of additional facilities around the campus, including a modern Sports Hall, Dance Studio, AstroTurf, Gym, Drama Studio, Music Suite, Art and Design building and 11 Science laboratories. Our facilities make us one of the leading secondary schools in Sheffield.
