Success Stories 2020/21


University: Queen Mary University of London

Course: LLB Law

Carshalton High School for Girls is excellent because of the environment it establishes for its students. It was indeed so perfect, to the extent that it felt like home. The staff and students were always there for me when I required support and I'm always going to be certain that even after leaving I can always rely upon CHSG.

Head student Leader 2020-2021 

Throughout my time at CHSG, from Year 7 to 11, I got wonderful support from both teachers and students, especially during the pandemic, when it appeared that we might not be able to complete our GCSEs. Despite the obstacle to regular education, the school found ways to assist my year group and me in achieving the greatest results possible. I completed all of my GCSEs with marks of 5 and above, and I'm now in year 12 studying courses that I enjoy. 

Keren, Year 12


University: Queens, Belfast

Course: International Relations and Politics

My name is Hannah. I studied Law, Politics and Psychology at CHSG and I'm now currently at Queens University Belfast studying International Relations and Politics in Northern Ireland. I am honestly so grateful for all the work that all my teachers and staff put in to help me get through the two years of sixth form. If I needed extra work I was able to get it, if I needed one on one time, it was always available, everyone was always more than happy to help and even just for a chit-chat, it really all helps. What I found extremely beneficial was having free periods where you could just relax and talk to people. It was a great way to de-stress and talk about the lesson and pick up notes you might've missed. Overall, the seven years I spent at CHSG were some of the best times, I've made friends for life and memories I can never forget.

In year 11 I did extremely well and achieved above my expected target grades for GCSE. Year 11 helped me to realise and understand the more you put the hard work, effort, time and motivation into your studies the closer you get to succeeding. The teachers were so supportive and provided huge amounts of resources and extra information to help achieve the best possible grades. From the support and effort put into my GCSEs I’m now on the path to reaching my dream career and focusing on the studies I’ve chosen in Sixth Form to get the best grades in my courses to help me then move onto the next stage.

Course: Mathematics and Actuarial Science

Secondary and Sixth Form life is something to cherish and enjoy. I am thankful to all my past teachers who have helped and encouraged me on how to get to this stage in my life. CHSG gave me a place to create and enjoy memories that I will cherish.
I am so grateful to have been a part of this school.

Senior Prefect 2020-2021


In Year 11, I was struggling with English language. After completing my mocks, I came out with a low score (a grade 5) and was quite disappointed. However, by completing lots of questions and looking through revision guides, I managed to get a grade 8! This has helped me for my next steps in Sixth Form, as I needed at least a 6 to do my chosen A-Level subjects. Now, I have been able to do subjects I really enjoy and Sixth Form has been a great experience so far. CHSG offered great support throughout Year 11 and despite the stress of exams the teachers actually made the year really enjoyable by helping us to celebrate every success and milestone.

University: Kent & Medway Medical School

Course: Medicine

I attended Carshalton High School for Girls from 2014 to 2021. After completing my GCSEs I studied Biology, Chemistry and Psychology at A Level and thoroughly enjoyed by time in CHSG Sixth Form. I am currently studying Medicine at the University of Kent & Medway Medical School.
The staff at CHSG were incredibly supportive and always had their door open whenever I needed any form of support. Despite attending Sixth Form during two lockdowns, I still felt that I could always reach out to my teachers and Head of Year, Miss Bevan, and knew that they would do everything they could to help. My time at CHSG is something I will always look back upon with fondness as I truly felt that the teachers cared about us, not only as students but also as people, which I believe is a really important factor for a school
