Head's Welcome

Sheffield independent school headmistress

Mrs Valerie Dunsford

Welcome to our website which I hope you will enjoy browsing and which I hope will give you a sense of the warm, friendly and stimulating environment we offer at Sheffield High School for Girls.

Our ethos is one which is based on mutual respect and one where every girl is valued for her individual talents and interests. We welcome girls from all backgrounds and from a wide geographical area which covers all of South Yorkshire, Derbyshire and North Nottinghamshire. The school thrives on the rich cultural and social mix of our girls who flourish in the friendly and nurturing environment we provide.

We are very proud of our national reputation for achieving excellent results academically, but also for our outstanding success in Sport, Music, Art and Drama and for the national awards we have achieved for our work within the local community. If you read our latest inspection report (available on the ISI website), you will see that we are judged to be extremely successful in achieving our aims.

The best way to catch the spirit of Sheffield Girls' School and experience the warmth and enthusiasm of our teachers and pupils is to come and visit. I am always happy to show parents around, so do make an appointment and visit us soon.

In the meantime, if you’d like to download a copy of our latest Junior, Senior or Sixth Form prospectuses, please go to our Prospectus page. You can also view our introductory video below.  For videos about the Junior and Senior Schools, the Sixth Form and the Student Experience at Sheffield Girls', please click here.

I look forward to meeting you soon.
