Open Evening - Summer 2019
"Walking through the doors on Open Evenings I could just tell there was a warm, welcoming atmosphere; now that I am here I love coming to school every day and know I will use everything I have learnt in later life."Year 7 Student
I am delighted to take this opportunity to introduce you to our school.
Sutton Coldfield Grammar School for Girls has a long tradition of providing students with a high quality, broad and balanced education. This is a happy and purposeful learning environment, where staff and students work together and enjoy coming to school. Here, teachers are subject specialists who share their enthusiasm as well as their knowledge. Students are encouraged to develop ‘a growth mindset’ in order to see the value of effort, have a positive approach to overcoming difficulties and take responsibility for their learning.
Our students are drawn from the surrounding area, with many travelling long distances to be a part of Sutton Girls. There are over 240 students in our Sixth Form. Many of our Year 11 students choose to stay and study in the Sixth Form along wih new students choosing to join the school in Year 12.
All students in the Sixth Form are role models to the other year groups, they are the head of the school and are given privileges to reflect their attitude and approach to learning. Students set high expectations of themselves with regards to their demeanour and looking after younger students. The Senior Student Leadership team is the epitome of this.
