Welcome from Sophie Bradshaw

Sophie Bradshaw, Head of Junior School, welcomes you to Croydon High

Life is never dull working with young children and our girls never cease to surprise and delight with their enthusiasm and individuality. At Croydon High Juniors we strive to support the girls to become the best version of themselves. There is no ideal they need to model themselves on, no set formula for their interests and passions; just an expectation that they approach learning opportunities with curiosity and commitment. 
Our girls are bursting with potential and it is a privilege to help them to explore and develop. In everything that we offer at Croydon High, right from Nursery, we have your daughter’s future in mind. Attributes such as confidence and resilience together with skills in presentation and reasoning will be as important as academic qualifications for her success and are therefore given  equal importance within the Junior School. Girls are encouraged to apply for positions of responsibility, audition for roles in productions and try out for sport and academic teams. They are not expected to succeed 100% of the time and what they learn about how to throw their hat into the ring will ensure that they are fully prepared for the competitive nature of university applications, graduate entry schemes and taking professional risks when opportunities arise.
Visitors to our school often comment on how relaxed and happy the girls are in their school environment. For me, this is the most important element of what we do. Happy girls who are comfortable to talk to me and their teachers about their work, their ideas and their concerns are best placed to learn. Come and visit us to meet our impressive girls.
