The Governors of Tormead are seeking a new Head for this outstanding school following the retirement of Christina Foord in August 2020, after ten years of inspirational leadership.

Tormead is a 4 to 18 GSA day girls’ school on an attractive site in Guildford. Building developments over the past ten years have transformed the School. The gracious original features of the building have been retained within the stunning new developments. Academic standards are consistently high, and the School has more girls applying than it has places for at 11+. A number arrive in Reception and stay through to 18; others arrive from a large range of state and independent schools at 11.

Having participated in a dynamic careers programme, sixth formers progress to a wide range of courses at established universities as well as taking up prestigious apprenticeships. The School achieved ‘excellent’ in both parts of its last ISI inspection. Its commitment to IT innovation has led to Apple Distinguished School status.

Tormead values individuality, celebrates a diversity of achievement and encourages girls to follow their own dreams. Girls come to understand the importance of service and community amidst mutual support. Academic and extra-curricular pursuits offer challenge and breadth for everyone.

Underpinning this is a wholehearted commitment to the wellbeing of the girls. Highly responsive in the face of the constant, shifting challenges for young people, pastoral care at the School ensures the girls leave ready to achieve sustainable success in higher education and beyond.
