Guildford High School

Guildford High School

This independent day school for girls aged four to eighteen lies in Guildford, Surrey. It is one of the top-performing in the country and the Sunday Times named Guildford High School as its Independent Secondary School of the Year 2012-13.

Academic performance has been exceptional. Over 88 per cent of A-Level grades in 2013 were either A or A*. That figure was a slightly higher 94 per cent at GCSE. Fourteen of 2013's 83 leavers accepted places at Oxbridge. Their 2012 predecessors had a better Oxbridge rate with twenty out of 75 heading to the universities.

British playwright Lucy Prebble, who authored ENRON, and actress Celia Imrie, who has appeared in films such Calendar Girls and Bridget Jones's Diary, are some of the school's most notable former pupils.
