What says..

Streatham & Clapham High is on the up. One of the first things the head did was to introduce Kinza, a compulsory enrichment programme offering a range of over 30 topics which the girls study one afternoon each week in the Michaelmas and Lent terms. Staff run courses in subjects they don’t teach (including forensic science, bee-keeping and Arabic) and mixed age groups work together.

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'.

What The Good Schools Guide says

Head master

Since 2012, Dr Millan Sachania MA (Cantab) MPhil PhD (40s). Former comprehensive student who gained a double first and a doctorate in musicology at Cambridge and then stayed on as a music tutor for five years. After (shock, horror) reading an undergraduate’s paper on Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, he decided to train as a schoolteacher and acquired a PGCE at Kingston University. Was impressed with GDST experience at Croydon High while following the course, and after stints as head of music at a girls’ school in Windsor and deputy head at a co-ed HMC school in north London, was delighted to accept this post. ‘Are you married?’ we asked. ‘Yes, to my piano’.

Parents praise his ‘phenomenal attention to detail’. One told us he was ‘not an obvious choice, but perfect’,...
