Celebrating 140 Years of Sheffield Girls’

We were delighted to welcome back over 50 former pupils and members of staff to celebrate the school’s 140th birthday with us on Friday 9th March. Guests were given a guided tour of school including a visit to our newly refurbished Trinity building (formerly the old gym) which is now looking very different to the building many of them will have remembered.

The talents of our pupils were showcased during a range of presentations and performances including scenes from the school play, Blood Brothers, excerpts from the recently published Shirreff journal and music from recent finalised of the GDST Young Musician of the Year, Niamh Sibley.

Thank you to all who joined us and we look forward to seeing you next year!
