This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2008, Ms Ann Haydon BSc (40s); arrived with an excellent reputation from a sister United Learning school, Guildford High, where she was deputy for five years. Previously she taught geography at Putney High, moving to Sutton High as youngest ever head of department. She’s proved a dynamic and committed leader, who is able to make positive changes, while keeping the staff on side. Sport and music have been her key development areas; both are now in the outstanding bracket. She has also introduced a variety of specialist learning coaches and mentors to help develop subject areas and new skills. Parents appreciate her and feel she has been incredibly good at taking the school forward, making major improvements to the girls’ education across the board. Definitely a lady who gets things done, said one...

Special Education Needs

The Learning Support Department provides a wide range of support services to students from Years 7 to 13. All students are screened early in Year 7 and individual assessments are carried out as required any time during Years 7-13. Spelling and Reading Comprehension Booster groups at Year 7, Learning Skills programmes across all years and smaller Study Skills groups, including a Sixth Form "On Track" study guidance service, meet the needs of many students with mild specific learning difficulties. Individual or small group tuition is offered to those who may need more intensive support. Specialist EAL tuition and adjusted programmes are available for students for whom English is an additional language and the School has a Korean mentor. Gifted and Talented students are identified and a range of programmes are in place to meet their needs. The School ethos is one of embracing a pupil's individuality, helping her to grow in self-confidence and self-worth and to achieve her potential. Those pupils with additional learning needs are no exception and are supported in a caring and practical way.
