Sheffield High School for Girls is a leading independent day school, educating over 950 girls aged 3 to 18 years. Founded in 1878 by The Girls’ Day School Trust, the UK’s leading network of independent girls’ schools and academies, Sheffield Girls’ provides a warm, friendly and stimulating environment for a rich cultural and social mix of girls. The leafy campus and beautiful Victorian buildings in the heart of the city offer outstanding facilities which have been expanded considerably following the successful recent merger with Ashdell Prep School.
Sheffield Girls’ has a proud tradition of academic excellence, with innovative and challenging teaching ensuring every girl is able to reach her academic potential. The School also enjoys a strong reputation for the success of pupils across the breadth of the co-curricular offering, which is designed to complement the academic ethos and ensure girls leave school as ambitious, open-minded and confident young women.
The GDST Council invites applications for the role of Head for September 2018, on the retirement of Mrs Valerie Dunsford following 14 years of exceptional leadership. The post offers a tremendous opportunity for an inspiring and committed leader with energy and ambition.
