Carshalton High School for Girls joins Girls’ Learning Trust

Carshalton High School for Girls has joined The Girls’ Learning Trust (GLT) – an all-girls Multi Academy Trust that delivers a first-class education to young women.

Founded in 2015, The Girls’ Learning Trust has two other schools under its remit; Nonsuch High School for Girls and Wallington High School for Girls. Last year, both Nonsuch and Wallington were amongst the highest performing schools in the UK at both GCSE and A level. Both schools were included in the 30 schools across the country who achieved Progress 8 scores greater than 1. The GLT is the only all-girls Multi-Academy Trust in the UK.

With a strategic aim to continue to grow, CEO of the Trust, Jane Burton is focussed on remaining as an all-girls Trust with a clear identity. “It brings me great pleasure to see Carshalton High School for Girls join and further strengthen our Trust. All our schools share many common characteristics and are held in high regard in the local community. Remaining focussed on all-girls education allows us to provide the very best opportunities for the young women we educate both inside and outside of the classroom.”

“All our schools are high-performing and deliver a broad, balanced and challenging curriculum which is key to delivering an outstanding education to ensure that students realise their full potential and are well prepared for their future.”

Vivien Jones, Headteacher at Carshalton High School for Girls, added: “We are delighted to join the Trust and look forward to the shared opportunities it can bring for students and staff alike. The GLT has a clear vision that aligns with our core aims and we welcome the added strength it will bring to the development of our students and the very positive contribution that we can make to the Trust.”

Students across the GLT benefit from being taught by highly qualified, dedicated and committed staff who share their passion and knowledge of their subject. STEM subjects are very popular across the Trust with very high numbers of girls studying Science and Maths.

The strong academic performance in each school is complemented by excellent pastoral care focused on supporting girls to ensure they are supported, guided and cared for during their time within the Trust. Alongside this a wealth of extra curricular and leadership opportunities in all the schools ensure that students leave the Trust well prepared for their future as successful young women.
