Welcome to Croydon High, our aims, purpose and promise

Welcome Message from our Headmistress, Emma Pattison

I am extremely proud to be leading this school, with its impressive history and its reputation for providing outstanding education for girls.

Building on the strong foundations of our past, our girls embrace challenge and opportunity and their remarkable talents and aspirations inspire the whole community, making this a truly exceptional place to work and learn.

The combination of impressive facilities, stunning and extensive grounds and a passionate and dedicated teaching staff, supported by a strong leadership team, guarantees the girls’ success and enjoyment in their endeavours. Every girl is understood for the person she is and will become. She is supported through her challenges, and her accomplishments are celebrated.

Our girls are what makes our school community unique. The emphasis on academic progress, blended with breadth of experience and exceptional pastoral care, equips them to go on and fulfil their dreams.

Please get in touch and come and visit us; our girls would love to tell you more about their school and all they aim to achieve here. Please contact our Admissions Registrar and they will be delighted to arrange this for you.

We look forward to meeting you.

Mrs E Pattison
