What the school says...

Our core belief is that all members of the school community should be inspired to outperform expectations on a daily basis. The pursuit of excellence is thus the schools defining feature. We nurture pupils to attain success across the widest spectrum of activity, extending far beyond the conventional academic horizon. In so doing, they learn the beauty of reason, the allure of the aesthetic, and the vitality of the physical. Our pupils thus learn to navigate the landscape of the human spirit and achieve beyond the realms of expectation.

We take pride in providing an inspiring, enlightened and intellectually challenging education in a lively, vibrant and warmly supportive environment. The family ethos of Streatham & Clapham High School enables its masters and mistresses to know, value and nurture each pupil as an individual. The school celebrates diversity and draws strength from its rich social and cultural mix.

The school is in the top 20% of independent schools in terms of its 2013 A Level results Two-thirds of the students achieved an A* or A grade in every A Level subject. Virtually all sixth-form students proceed to the most competitive Russell Group universities.

Recent visitors to our Open Day described the school as 'exciting', 'instantly impressive' and 'purposeful'.
