NEW HEADTEACHER ANNOUNCEMENT - 21ST NOVEMBER 2014

Dear parents/guardians

I am delighted to tell you that yesterday the Board of Governors unanimously approved the appointment of Ms Fiona Brierley as Head Teacher. She is a former Deputy Head and more recently Acting Head of the School. Ms Brierley and two other excellent short listed candidates undertook two days of interviews and tests in front of a Selection Panel of Governors. Advice was also taken from a Human Resources expert and the Head Teacher of one of the UK's foremost girls' schools. Ms Brierley performed outstandingly in all these exercises and she is the worthy successor to the eight former Head Teachers of Southend High School for Girls. I look forward to great progress for SHSG under Ms Brierley's leadership. 

 With best wishes

Francesca Edwards MA (Oxon)Chair of Governors, SHSG

Sixth Form Option Blocks.

We have made changes to the Sixth Form Option Blocks following Open Evening, which should make certain combinations easier to achieve. If a student wishes to make set of subjects which do not fit then they should put their preferred options on the application form regardless of the blocks. We do have some flexibility with the options blocks, they are a guide and we are able to make changes to suit as many students as possible.

Mr Jolley,  Director of Sixth Form
