Meera

Year 7 Senior School

I have just started in year 7, after spending seven years in the Prep School from Reception through to year 6. I had an absolutely amazing time at the Prep. It was the best fun and of course I also learnt a lot! I really wanted to continue to senior school. My family has a long connection with Sydenham High – my mum and both my aunts came here and my sister is currently in year 10.

I am really grateful to the Senior School teachers who, despite us being in the middle of a pandemic, managed to organise several events for all the new year 7s, which gave us the opportunity to talk with one and other so it was not awkward on our first proper day.

Sydenham Stories

Olympia

Year 13 Senior School

As the youngest of seven girls, who all went to Sydenham High, it’s amazing to have so much history with the school. It’s great to hear about our shared teachers, their memories at the school and seeing their names on the honours boards. Having that history with the school helped me decide to stay for sixth form, and I love it as much as my sisters before me did. The atmosphere is so warm and welcoming, and I know that I wouldn’t be enjoying my final two years of school if I weren’t at Sydenham, receiving all the help with A Levels, as well as University applications.

What an exciting, enriching curriculum! My daughter comes home buzzing with new ideas and projects – all delivered with a cry to be bold, positive and risk-taking. A gem of a school.
