At Wycombe High School, we have a long history of providing a high-quality education for girls. We match the very best of the school’s traditions, with an ambitious vision, mission and strong core values (see more in our Ethos section).
This means, we are constantly developing and evolving our curriculum and facilities. We are never complacent and constantly strive to further build on our reputation as one of the best selective grammar schools nationally. We are passionate about single sex education and the extraordinary benefits it brings our students. We are proud of the excellent teaching, care and guidance that we offer, along with the excellent facilities and a wide range of opportunities in and beyond the classroom. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff, trustees, parents and visitors to the school to share this commitment.
Ofsted has designated us an ‘outstanding’ school. In their words:
Year on year, our students attain at the very highest levels and we retain our position as one of the top state schools nationally. Our examination results are outstanding and our students go on to take up a range of excellent university, apprenticeships or employment opportunities. Students are exceptionally well prepared to make choices about their future, whether that is higher education, training or employment.
We have a strong commitment to the performing and visual arts, and sport. We organise concerts, musical productions, school plays, dance and gymnastics shows, art and technology exhibitions and leadership programmes for students. Each year we reach national and regional finals in a range of sports and other extracurricular activities. We offer an extensive range of educational visits in the United Kingdom and abroad.
In summary, each of our students leaves us academically extremely well qualified, culturally and globally aware, and a good friend, a good neighbour, and a good citizen.
Do come and visit us; we would be delighted to welcome you and enable you to see first-hand why we are so proud of our school and our students.
