Welcome from the Headmistress

It is my privilege to spend every day with inspiring, intelligent girls.

Here at Sutton High, we celebrate learning and value academic rigour believing there are no limits to what our girls can achieve within an aspirational and inspirational environment. Our focus is on challenge, engagement and enjoyment in the classroom and beyond, developing ambition and confidence. In a community where relationships are strikingly positive, our girls rise to high expectations of courage, principle and optimism through a wealth of opportunities and encouragement. Come and visit us to experience the buzz of activity and warm welcome – I would love to meet you.

  • Hockey Rally

    date posted: Monday 13 Oct 2014

    On Wednesday 8th October, 11 players in the senior hockey team travelled to Oxford to compete in the Trust Hockey Rally. When we arrived we warmed up and shortly afterwards we began our first match against Howells. Unfortunately we lost 2-0, but we still kept positive for the next matches. Our next match was against Portsmouth and a goal by Catherine Croucher secured a 1-0 win. We were really happy about our performance as we all worked well as a team. Our third match against Nottinghill and Ealing was definitely the hardest in our pool. Although we put up a good fight, we lost 3-0. Sadly we did not progress to the next round, however our team played so well and all enjoyed our day in Oxford. Everyone voted for their player’s player at the end of the tournament and this was awarded to Ruth Linnell.

  • Congratulations to our Tumbling Teams

    date posted: Thursday 9 Oct 2014
    Congratulations to all the teams that took part in the Surrey Tumbling competition at Guildford High School this week. The U9 team came first in their age group, the U11's finished second and the U13's were awarded fourth place.  Each age group is represented by five gymnasts who all perform two tumbles each.  Both are judged out of ten and the scores added together.  All five scores make up the final team result. The tumble is a routine linking up to eight gymnastic movements ranging from a cartwheel to a somersault. Well done girls!
  • Sporting heroine encourages girls to conquer their fear of failure

    date posted: Monday 29 Sep 2014

    Round-the-world yachtswoman, Tracy Edwards MBE, encouraged sixth form students from Sutton High School to ‘face their fear and do it anyway’ at the annual Girls’ Day School Trust (GDST) Young Leaders’ Conference in Bath this weekend ( 26-28 September).

     

    The conference gave the girls real-life experience of designing and marketing a charity fundraising event in an ‘Apprentice-style’ challenge. 

     

    Addressing the girls, Tracy Edwards MBE, said:

    “We only find out if we’ll sink or swim when we’re tested. This conference is a great opportunity for young women to step out of their comfort zones and into a real-life work environment where they have to dig deep to succeed.”

     

    Over three days, the 7 members of the Head Girls’ team from Sutton High School, gained valuable leadership experience including teamwork, communication, negotiation, problem solving and financial management. These tangible life skills will benefit them enormously when they embark on their own chosen careers.

     

    Helen Fraser, CEO of the GDST, said:

    “We want to equip our girls to go out into the world prepared to confront the challenges they will face as they work their way up to leadership. The Young Leaders’ Conference is a great insight into the world of work that I’m sure they will remember for years to come.”

  • Science Rocks!

    date posted: Friday 26 Sep 2014
    We were delighted to host the ‘Science Rocks’ exhibition and lecture on 24 September, which was an amazing, entertaining and inspiring night. Paul Burstow, MP, and the Mayor and Mayoress were among the VIP guests, and pupils from other local schools were also invited along. The audience was delighted by all the displays including the Science Buskers from Sutton Grammar School, and an informative talk from Subsea 7. The lecture included vivid experiments and liquid nitrogen tricks, plus an amusing film.The evening was the brainchild of Year 10 pupils, Megan and Elizabeth O'Shea, who won four awards at the recent Big Bang South East Science Fair for their project ‘Science Rocks’.

    20 girls from Years 10 and 11 are currently on Botswana/Zambia. Here is a news update from Team 1.

    Have just managed to find the only internet connected computer in Mwandi and so can finally send some news and photos.

    We moved on from Lusaka after two nights and went to Livingstone for one night, bumping into some boys from King's Wimbledon while we there. The girls have done a great job buying bus tickets (even bargaining so we got one free ticket each time) and cooking food. The journey from Lusaka to Livingstone was 8 hours and came complete with a Baptist preacher for the coach. We then got to Mwandi and the house building project. The camp is great, though very basic. The toilets are all long drops (no flush or lighting!) and the showers rely on water being heated by a fire under the metal storage tanks. Every morning at about 4am the cockerels, donkeys and dogs start up an almighty racket! The staff are really friendly and the have been constantly praising the girls.

    The girls have been in great spirits though and we're a day ahead of schedule on the house. It's built by tying long sticks to upright wooden poles and then using mud to fill in the walls. After that there's the throwing stage, whereby you literally stand and throw balls of soggy mud at the wall! They've all been singing loads and we must have got through every musical you can think of! We've met loads of kids who all want to make friends with the girls. They're badly in need of exercise books, pencils and even teachers though. Teachers here have to do two years in a rural place before they can move on and as there are no houses for them, only huts with no electricity or running water, most leave as soon as possible to find jobs in the cities.  

    Yesterday we went to a traditional UCZ church service and the girls got up to sing for the congregation. The rest of the day, and today, were spent resting as we're waiting for the house to dry. Tomorrow and Wednesday we'll be smoothing as well as visiting the old people's home and the pre-school. On Thursday we head off on our trek so there'll be no chance for showers, electricity or e-mails!

    Hope all's well in Sutton! Botswana 2014Mrs O’Keefe
