Welcome to Sutton High School. We are an independent day school for girls from 3-18, part of the GDST family since we were founded in 1884. Girls here love their school, learn with joy and want each other to succeed.

Head’s Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to Sutton High School. We combine joyful learning, outstanding academic results and excellence in pastoral care.

Our Manifesto and Strategy

We have been educating and inspiring girls for over 139 years. In that time, we have developed a strong sense of who we are and what we stand for.

Our Pioneering History

We are part of a pioneering movement that started over150 years ago. Together with our sister GDST schools, we defied Victorian attitudes to women by providing a rigorous academic curriculum for local girls.


We are proud to be part of the Girls’ Day School Trust, a family of 25 schools across England and Wales.

Examination Results

Our entirely bespoke curriculum enables every individual girl to maximise her potential in public examinations. We are proud of our students and our teachers for achieving outstanding results year after year.

Why All Girls?

The Girls Day School Trust, of which we are part, has recently released a research paper which outlines the argument for girls’ schools and girls-only education. You can read the full paper at the bottom of the page.

GDST Space Tech

We have a team of specialist, expert staff who ensure that all our students maximise their potential, both inside the classroom and beyond. They know and celebrate our girls as individuals, love their work and teach with joy.


Our board of governors provides support, guidance and critical oversight to the Headmistress and the school. The governors bring valuable expertise from various professional fields and we are very grateful for their commitment and their capabilities.

Our sports complex offers a 500m2 sports hall, 25m x 8m swimming pool and a dance studio with mirrored wall, sound system and sprung flooring.
