Attend an open day or taster session

Getting a real sense of what is so unique about our school is so important.

That’s why we offer Open Events and Taster Sessions throughout the school year and look forward to welcoming you soon. Please see below for upcoming dates and booking links. Booking for events usually opens at least half a term in advance or over the holidays.

A Taster Session is a wonderful way for your daughter to experience life at Sydenham High first hand. Girls take part in different lessons and activities in both smaller groups and full classes. Places for our Taster Sessions are limited and registration is essential.

If there is a particular aspect of school life you would like to see, or if you would like to visit the school at some other time, please call our admissions team on 020 8557 7004 or email and they will be happy to make individual arrangements.

About Us

Providing a first-class education for girls aged 4-18 was the aim of our founders in 1887 and though the outlook and opportunities for girls may have changed, our educational goals remain the same.

Our school motto, Nyle ye Drede, (‘Fear nothing’), lies at the heart of all we do. A Sydenham High education is centred upon the girl, where academic excellence and pastoral excellence go hand in hand. We want our pupils to have a ‘can do’ approach and inner strength so that they are enabled to thrive, succeed and be happy.
