140th Birthday for Sheffield High School for Girls

140 years ago today, our school was founded by four inspirational women: Maria Grey, Emily Shirreff, Henrietta Stanley and Mary Gurney, after whom our school houses are named.

They were pioneers in introducing high quality education for girls and were determined that girls should be given the chance to be everything they can be. We now look to the future with that same determination. Happy birthday Sheffield High School for Girls!
