Carshalton High School for Girls is a highly successful, popular 11 to 18 comprehensive school. There are 1250 students on roll, over 80 teaching staff and a number of support staff who make a major contribution to the daily smooth running of the school in a variety of ways. Staff work as a cohesive team setting the highest professional standards as an example to the students.

The school is a designated Humanities/Arts College and holds Artsmark Gold (awarded 4 times), Investor in People and Investor in Careers Status.  


Our ethos is based on our core values of Community, Harmony, Success and Growth. Securing high achievement and the well being of students is at the heart of everything we do. High standards of learning and teaching, our strong pastoral system, very good support and guidance, an extensive range of additional learning opportunities and the ‘extra distance’ staff go for the girls ensures that the needs of every student are personalised and met.  

The school is at a very exciting stage, expanding in September 2015 from a 7 form entry to 8 form entry. We have also recently been successful in securing £5.6million of funding bid from the Academies Capital Maintenance Grant and London Borough of Sutton for new buildings including a brand new canteen and sports hall.
