Headteacher's Welcome

Headteacher's Welcome

Sydenham School is a vibrant school community and one in which we place a strong emphasis on the quality of relationships across the school. We have high standards and high expectations in the belief that every student can perform highly. We are an inclusive, diverse comprehensive school rooted in the local community. The school is driven by a set of core values that include hard work (endeavour), creativity, open mindedness and kindness.

We are a World Class High Performance Learning (HPL) School in which every student is given both the opportunity as well as the support to excel. We are proud to have been awarded this status in the summer of 2018. Excellent learning and teaching lies at the heart of all that we do and ensuring that pedagogy is outstanding across the board is central to our school vision.

Sydenham School benefits from superb facilities that include recently built state of the art STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) buildings and a renovated building dating from the Edwardian era. Both sets of buildings offer a strong mixture of tradition and innovation, which affords the very best opportunities for all our students to be the success in all areas that we strive for each one of them to be.
