Welcome

Sydenham High School, GDST, is an independent day school for girls aged 4-18 years. The school was founded in 1887, becoming one of the last schools to be opened by the Girls’ Public Day School Trust. Set in the leafy suburbs of South East London, we pride ourselves on enriching young minds in a way that will endure a lifetime.

Year 9 Senior School

I have an incredibly big family and my six sisters have all gone to this school. Every single sister has enjoyed seven years of amazing memories here which have all been shared with me. It is great having so much history with the school. I have learned so much about the teachers and so much about my sisters as young pupils, as now they are all 21+. I feel so proud seeing their names on the honours boards, celebrating their successes.

On the first day, I signed up to various clubs that I had never experienced before, such as Lindy-Hop Dancing, Rugby Club and Science Club.
