Mrs M French joins us in September 2020 as our new Headteacher
A WELCOME FROM OUR NEW HEADTEACHER
Chislehurst School for Girls is a happy and highly successful place of learning for girls aged 11-18, where students have every opportunity to excel academically, flourish personally and reach their full potential.
We are committed to the pursuit of academic excellence and to developing the leaders of tomorrow. Our strong pastoral support and commitment to mutual respect enable all our students to discover their strengths and truly develop a life-long love of learning.
In addition, we offer a range of musical, sporting and extra-curricular opportunities that will help equip your daughter for success and happiness in adult life. We want her to be confident, articulate, determined and compassionate.
We are temporary custodians of this fine school, and your daughter will become part of a rich and diverse history of educating girls that dates back to 1896. In the sixth form, Chislehurst School for Girls becomes co-educational, and we welcome boys aged 16-18, believing that the diamond model of education has real benefits for all.
We are proud of our young men and women, and committed to enriching their sixth-form experience and ensuring that they thrive and reach their full potential. A spirit of charity, social justice and global awareness is central to this.
We are a diverse and inclusive school community and welcome the enriching variety of backgrounds and traditions that all contribute to making Chislehurst School for Girls a wonderful place in which to both learn and work. Our brilliant staff work hard to ensure that we provide a safe place for your child to grow and learn, and as we write the next chapter in its history, it is my privilege and honour to serve the school as Headteacher.
Mrs M French - Headteacher
Working closely with students and their parents, we set out to:
- Prepare every student for adult life by developing her potential to the full, morally, intellectually and socially, and promoting her physical, creative and ICT skills;
- Provide a safe, caring, co-operative and stimulating environment which fosters her intellectual, social, cultural and religious acceptance;
- Using emotional intelligence to develop self-discipline and awareness of the needs of others;
- Enable the students to become contributing and self-reliant members of society;
- Enable the students to develop a positive attitude towards, and belief in, achievable high expectations within a committed environment of educational excellence.
Why girls’ schools?
Research shows that girls take centre stage, have their voices heard, create a culture of achievement, are empowered to become courageous leaders, foster interests in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) subjects, develop as critical thinkers, become committed to social improvement and in bridging divides. They develop greater confidence and are more willing to take risks
For almost 125 years, generations of girls have thrived and benefited from an education at Chislehurst School for Girls.
What can you expect for your daughter if she attends Chislehurst School for Girls?
She will be joining a happy and successful school community, where she will be encouraged to work hard and to achieve the best of which she is capable. We believe that each student has strengths and, through the care and knowledge of each individual, we will help her to develop these. Our vision for the future is combined with the traditional values that society respects. We believe in good discipline and students know what is expected of them at CHSFG. It is easy to flourish in a well-ordered and pleasant learning environment.
