Congratulations to all the girls who have been offered a place here for September, we are looking forward to meeting each and everyone of you and hope that you will quickly become part of our community. There is a parents evening for new parents on Wednesday June 10th when I will talk about how parents can help their daughters at SHSG. There is also an opportunity to buy the extras such as dictionaries, in addition the two uniform suppliers will be present. This evening is for parents only. The successful girls are invited into school on Friday July 3rd where they can meet their fellow students and staff. They will have a taste of lessons and might even get homework! The girls should come in their present school uniform and bring pen and notebook/paper.

Once again well done to all girls who passed the test to come to SHSG.


It is a great privilege to be the Headteacher of this outstanding school and to welcome you to our website. For over 100 years SHSG has been supporting young women to develop independence, open minds, curiosity and a keen sense of responsibility. In the sixth form we are pleased to welcome boys and new girls and are delighted that they quickly become part of our school community.

The quality of teaching is at the heart of an outstanding school. At SHSG teaching staff and support staff work closely together to ensure that students have the best opportunities possible. The curriculum is innovative and challenging and is delivered by expert teachers. We have high expectations and our students achieve excellence in external examinations.

Southend High School for Girls is an academic school plus! We offer an enviable range of extra curricular activities both in and outside school, music, drama, sports, enterprise, debating, trips, world challenge, engineering to name but a few. The range and quality of our academic achievement and extra curricular activities are a testament to the enthusiasm and dedication of both students and staff.

We know that academic achievement and other successes are based on students well being - their happiness. SHSG provides a supportive environment in which students can flourish and reach their potential. We are proud to be known as a caring school, promoting self confidence and valuing each and every member of our school community. SHSG students leave well qualified, well skilled, well equipped and confident to face the exciting futures ahead of them.

Please delve further into these pages to gain an insight into the school and the excellent education offered at SHSG. However, it is difficult to convey the unique character of SHSG in words and pictures. We invite you to see for yourself what we have to offer at an open evening, visits morning or by appointment.

Fiona Brierley, Headteacher

SHSG Teacher reaches finals of theTeacher of the Year Award

All our teachers are superb but we do have an individual who stands out, Sarah Imbush our Director of Mathematics. Mrs Imbush is unstinting in her pursuit of excellence in maths. She has built into her faculty a 'can do' culture making maths the most popular A level subject in terms of student numbers.

We have nominated Mrs Imbush for the Pearson Secondary School Teacher of the Year Award. We are pleased to announce that Mrs Imbush has reached the finals, which is more than well deserved. Whatever the outcome Mrs Imbush is a shining star in the teaching world and a winner in our eyes.
