Carshalton High School for Girls is a vibrant, inclusive, learning community where staff and students learn and thrive together. Our ethos is underpinned by our core values of Community, Harmony, Success and Growth; values that are much in evidence across the school.
The school has many strengths. However, we are not complacent and constantly reflect upon our own practice in order to secure further improvement.
The school has a tradition of providing a high quality comprehensive education for 11 to 18 year olds of all abilities. Here, the individual is seen as unique and everything possible is done to ensure students achieve academically beyond their personal best; are provided with opportunities to attain success in a vast range of other areas, as well as develop the necessary qualities and skills to become independent, responsible, free-thinking young women, ready to take on the rigour and challenges of the 21st Century.
The development of self respect and a positive self-image are crucial to the success of all students and therefore at the heart of the well-rounded, balanced education we seek to provide; ensuring we take every opportunity to celebrate success.
ofsted report in 2007.
"Carshalton High School for Girls is a rapidly improving school that is providing its students with
a satisfactory education. It has several good features that contribute to this profile. The most
significant one is the leadership provided by the headteacher, very effectively complemented
by that of the senior team. Between them, they have identified what students could be achieving
and set challenging targets for which to aim. In a relatively short time, the impact of this
direction is evident with, for example, GCSE results that are the school's best ever and closing
the gap with the national average."
