Guildford High School is a remarkable place and has been educating girls since 1888. Around one thousand pupils, aged 4-18, from Guildford and its surrounding towns and villages, enjoy exceptional facilities and inspired teaching here. GHS comprises a Junior School, a Senior School and a Sixth form, on one site. Whilst providing all-through education, each section of the School has its own distinct personality and pupils join us at many different entry points.
Our staff are integral in delivering to our pupils’ education of the highest quality; one that inspires them to think and learn creatively. We seek to recruit and retain dynamic teaching and non-teaching staff who share in our vision and commitment.
We consistently achieve some of the best results in the country. Our public exam results in 2023 placed us second in the country in the Sunday Times Parents Power league table. We were named Sunday Times Independent School of the Year 2024, Sunday Times Southeast Independent School of the Year for Academic Performance 2024, Sunday Times Southeast Independent School of the Decade and Sunday Times Prep School of the Decade.
Both our sports and pastoral care have also recently been recognised with awards at a national level.
