Highsted Grammar School

Welcome to Highsted Grammar School. Highsted is a happy and cohesive community and an environment which liberates young women to take the risks and embrace the challenges that will prepare them for their future roles and responsibilities as leaders in tomorrow’s society.

Our success is as a consequence of striking a fine balance between tradition and innovation. Our values are traditional ones and we offer an unashamedly academic curriculum. We are keenly aware, however, that we are preparing our students for a working life none of us can yet anticipate.  Our focus, therefore, is on developing the skills, attributes and habits of mind that will equip our young women as life-long learners. Our aim is to launch them into the world as self-starters, focused but flexible, armed with the courage to grasp opportunities and the resilience and humour to negotiate setbacks along the way. 

We encourage and support our students in exploring their own potential, nurturing existing talents and interests and discovering new ones along the way.  To ensure we enable each and every girl to fulfil her potential, an emphasis is placed on personalisation, on proactive mentoring and on pastoral care. Our students will embark upon adult life conscious of their worth, ambitious for their futures and aware that they are lucky indeed to have been educated here. 

Highsted is a very special school. If you want to see how special, you are warmly invited to pay us a visit. 

Anne Kelly, Headteacher
