Welcome

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.

Year 12

From the moment I joined Sydenham High in year 8 from another school, I was welcomed into a family that I knew would push me to thrive academically, but also allow me to be a well-rounded student.

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.
