Mission, ethos and aims

We provide a first-class education for academically able and characterful girls from age four to eighteen. Guildford High School is a happy, purposeful and vibrant community that centres on ‘The GHS 8’.

We, as a community, are inspiring each other to be the very best that we can be.

Mrs Fiona Boulton, Headmistress

All that we do at Guildford High School is designed with our pupils in mind. We nurture our pupils as they grow up in our care, providing an environment of openness, where they feel safe and secure, where there is trust and kindness. Our aims are simple: we want our pupils to be happy and be positive about their own gifts and abilities.
