Carshalton High School for Girls

Carshalton High School for Girls is a highly successful school, judged by Ofsted in November 2017 as ‘Good’ in all categories.

Friday 4th September Update

We have had a very successful week and all year main school groups have now returned to school. 

We will welcome our 6th Form back on Monday with the highest numbers that we have welcomed into the school for Year 12.  For those already here, the enthusiasm and the determination from the students has been fantastic and they are meeting all of our Covid-19 expectations incredibly well.

I will write to you in more detail next week but for now a few general reminders for next week

  • Students cannot come onto the school site before the allocated time.  They will also be expected to leave promptly at the end of the day.
  • Parents of Year 7 should drop off at the beginning and wait in the park for their daughters at the end of the school day.  We will let Year 7 enter and leave via a gate that leads them directly into the park.  Please do not stand in the drive leading up to the school or the footpath outside the school as there is a lot of congestion in that area.  A reminder also that all parents must remain socially distanced from each other and the students.  Members of Leadership Team will remind parents of this in the morning and the evening.  Do not be offended – we need to keep everyone safe.
  • Parents cannot drop non-essential items (for example Lunch, PE Kit, Mobile Phone) off at the office.  I know and appreciate it is incredibly hard but we need to keep the number of parents to an absolute minimum during the school day.  If your daughter has forgotten something please let her Head of Year know and they will make the teacher aware.
  • Students must be wearing their lanyard at all times at school.  If they lose them they may have to pay for a replacement. 
  • If students have PE that day they can arrive to school in their PE kit.
  • Students should bring their booklets to the first lesson for each subject they study.

The Department for Education has published updated information for parents and carers.  The link to this information can be found here:

I will write again more formally next week with a more in-depth update on how we are getting on and information about our updated behaviour policy which I shared with all students in my presentations this week.

For now though, thank you to all of you for assisting us in getting this year started.  Clearly the girls are glad to be back in school and we are glad to welcome them back.  Your assistance in making this experience more endurable and therefore successful is greatly appreciated.

Mr M Devenney, Headteacher
