Developing Confident,
Successful and Happy Students

We are passionate about developing the next generation of leaders.

As an outstanding and successful grammar school, we celebrate and promote academic excellence, but we also place a high value on creativity, performance, sporting excellence and leadership.  Our students are active ambassadors for the school in the local community.

SHSG Parent:

I would like to pass my thanks to everyone in the school for the way in which you have handled the most recent lockdown. The positivity and genuine regard for the girls’ well-being has clearly been at the heart of so much that you have done through these tricky times.
