What makes SCHS so special is the lifelong connection between current pupils and alumnae and we aim to give you every opportunity to maintain your link with the School and each other.
From the moment you become a pupil at SCHS you are part of an inspiring network of fearless women who are passionate about supporting each other.
Your alumnae network is an active community and we offer you event invitations, dedicated reunions, regular news updates and networking and volunteering opportunities. Furthermore, you are a part of the unique GDST Alumnae Network of over 70,000 women in the UK and around the world.
I am inspired by my mother, who raised me as a single mother from when I was 11 – she showed me that it’s possible to be a wonderful mother and have a fulfilling and important career, and that if I worked hard enough, I could accomplish anything.

Support your school
Over the years, hundreds of Streatham & Clapham girls have benefited from the unique educational opportunities we provide. With your help, we will ensure that many more are able to reach their full potential regardless of their family’s financial circumstances.
