This is an exciting opportunity for an innovative and inspiring educational leader to join a thriving community and drive it forward to the next stage of its development.
Croydon High School is a leading independent day school for around 600 girls aged 3 to 18, offering an exceptional learning environment and strong sense of community for every girl, every day. The Junior and Senior Schools at Croydon High share an impressive, leafy 22 acre site and enjoy the benefits of purpose built, well-resourced and recently refurbished facilities in spacious grounds.
Croydon High is a forward-looking, innovative school and has enjoyed exceptional growth in recent years. The School is renowned for offering its students a wide range of opportunities and choices, enabling them to thrive in different areas. It has recently pioneered an Enterprise Technology programme, embedding technology across the entire curriculum and encouraging the students to be entrepreneurial.
Croydon High is part of The Girls’ Day School Trust, a family of schools where girls learn without limits. Whilst academic excellence is a given, GDST schools also focus on giving girls the confidence and skills to thrive in the modern world.
As a centre of excellence, the GDST provides unrivalled opportunities and resources for students, staff and alumnae, as well as support and training for headteachers. As part of a family of schools, GDST headteachers belong to a dynamic group of heads, allowing them to exchange ideas and best practice.
The GDST Council invites applications for the role of Head following the appointment of Emma Pattison to Le Regent Crans Montana College in Switzerland, from Easter 2020.
