What the school says...
Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you have to make, so why do so many parents each year choose Sheffield High School for their daughters? Sheffield High School pupils are hard-working, well motivated, talented girls who achieve excellent results, yet they are also renowned for being happy, friendly, polite, confident and fun-loving. Our aim is to bring out the best in all our girls and to allow them to develop their own individual skills and personalities within a structured, caring community. We believe firmly in educating the whole person and value highly girls' moral development as well as their academic, creative and physical talents.
Sheffield High is consistently the highest performing school in South Yorkshire and the North Midlands at GCSE and A-level. The best way to find out if Sheffield High School is the right school for your daughter is to come along and see us either on one of our Open Mornings or any weekday by appointment. We look forward to meeting you and your daughter and showing you around the school. ...Read more

Special Education Needs
If the girls are to achieve their best, they need to feel confident, safe and happy in school. Our Heads of Year, form teachers, subject and support staff form a dedicated and caring team who devote considerable time in and out of the classroom to ensure that every girl is progressing as she should and achieving her best. If a girl is found to have a special need, help is provided in a sensitive and understanding way. Nov 09.
