Sheffield Girls’ is one of the highest performing secondary schools in Yorkshire. We provide girls with the skills and confidence to achieve academic excellence throughout all years and the school frequently obtains top league table results for GCSEs and A-levels.
Our curriculum combines traditional, practical and scientific subjects with modern and creative fields to ensure a balanced and rich secondary school education. We offer girls the choice of 23 different GCSE subjects as well as the core curriculum to inspire them to achieve their best academically and individually. All girls study three separate sciences, two modern languages and Latin in addition to the standard national curriculum.
From the moment your daughter joins Sheffield Girls' secondary school, we will encourage her to discover her strengths and passions 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 Girls’. Our high level of planning, structure and leadership allows your daughter to seamlessly progress from one year to the next and it is part of what makes us a leading independent school.
We will support your daughter in building her confidence and self-belief that she can achieve whatever she sets her mind to. We will provide her with the skills and the drive to fulfil her dreams and aspirations. The positive, exciting and challenging atmosphere in and out of the classroom will allow her to grow and develop a passion for knowledge. She will learn to explore, question and express her own views across the wide range of subjects that we offer.
We believe that children learn more effectively when they are in a happy and supportive environment and our pastoral care is the key to ensuring this. Our outstanding teachers will get to know your daughter inside out, understanding her individual needs and ensuring that she achieves her full potential. We will help her strive in those subjects in which she excels and support her in those where she is less confident. As well as the larger pastoral care team, each pupil has a form tutor and Head of Year, who will look after their day to day welfare.
The girls personal development outside of the classroom is just as important to us and our extensive range of facilities make us one of the best secondary schools in Sheffield. Pupils can benefit from extracurricular activities and facilities such as, our modern Sports Hall, Dance Studio, AstroTurf, Gym, Drama Studio, Music Suite, Art and Design building and 11 Science laboratories.
