Sheffield High School provides seamless education exclusively for girls from ages 4 to 18 and is part of the Girls’ Day School Trust, the largest provider of independent education in the country. Results in public examinations are consistently strong and almost always place the school as among the best in Yorkshire and the North Midlands.

The school has received a string of national awards for the exceptional quality of its extra-curricular provision and it excels in sport, with many teams regularly appearing – and winning – in national finals. It has state-of-the-art facilities for science, art and ICT in the Junior and Senior schools and has recently opened a large extension to its sixth form centre. Main entry for pupils is at ages 4, 7, 11, 13 and 16, but occasional vacancies also occur in other year groups.

The main open mornings take place each autumn, but prospective pupils and their families are welcome to see the school in action at any time by appointment.
