Beyond the classroom

Every day at Sutton High School we open the door for our girls to think above, around and beyond the standard academic curriculum. As well as an outstanding education, we offer a host of incredible opportunities and unforgettable experiences.

Sports, music and drama for each and every girl

Music brassWhether girls are aiming for a coveted place in of our high-performing sports teams, or just want to get involved in a club, they can choose from hockey, netball, gymnastics, dance, athletics, swimming (in our own pool) and more.

In music, we have ensembles to suit every talent, an outstanding team of peripatetic teachers and a renowned Senior Choir who sang at Disneyland Paris last year.

Opened in November 2018, our state-of-the-art perfoming arts venue hosts not only a comprehensive annual programme of concerts, but also at least two major drama productions every year, the most recent being The Addams Family and The Snow Queen

Clubs that change your life

We have an enormous range of co-curricular clubs and societies, keeping girls inspired and engaged at every moment of the school day and beyond. There is always something extraordinary going on, from making ice cream using liquid nitrogen in STEM Society, to uncovering a journalstic scoop in Young Reporters.

In summer 2018, students in Year 10 created their own club in association with the phone case company, Mous, to accomplish a single mission: send an iPhone 36km into space using a high altitude balloon. Watch the video to find out what happened!

Trips to remember forever

Galapagos

Our amazing teachers take girls all over the country and the world on trips that they will remember forever. From meeting the local wildlife on the Galapagos Islands and skiing in the Alps, to exploring the Dorset coast and discovering Iceland’s hidden volcanic secrets, Sutton High students return from school trips with their eyes wide open.

Immersive enrichment programmes

Archery

In Years 7 and 8, we offer our Kaleidoscope enrichment programme, which is designed to expand horizons and challenge expectations. We refresh the options each year but current students can choose from courses including Ancient Greek, fencing, taekwondo, samba band, acoustic guitar, ceramics, photography and chess.

For older girls we focus on personal growth and resilience. In Year 9, we run the Dalma Frost Project, where pupils develop, market and sell a product, while Years 10 to 13 undertake an immersive enrichment programme with inspirational outside speakers, workshops and visits.

Across the school, our Leadership Over Learning initiative guides girls to become autonomous learners with the skills to succeed at university, including digital literacy. All Year 7 students are taught how to stay safe online, decipher research and make good use of new technology.

My daughter is a keen participant in two school choirs and loved the music tour to Paris. Performance quality – both vocal and instrumental – is outstanding.
