SCHS Evening Jazz Festival
This year’s Jazz Festival will be on the evening of October 5th. All girls are welcome to audition to be selected to perform with a professional Jazz Combo (guitar, piano, bass and drums). They can perform an instrumental or vocal piece as a soloist or in a group.
Due to the timing of the event, we will be organising auditions for the U3 (Year 7) girls on the week of 12th and 13th of September at lunchtime. The rest of the school is auditioning in June, ahead of the holidays, but if your daughter is keen to do this, then it would be good for her to prepare something for audition over the holidays. It is likely that she will be put in a small group to perform but she should audition alone and she won’t have to decide who, that will be done by us after the audition process.
Monday 16 – Friday 27 October

U3 Parents’ Evening (Academic)
At Streatham and Clapham High School we have introduced a digital strategy that facilitates an any-time, any-place approach to learning. Our aim is to embed technology seamlessly in the learning experience; fostering independence, creativity and digital collaboration between pupils and staff.
We operate a one-to-one device policy, and each student must bring a Windows laptop with a touchscreen and stylus to school each day.
We have developed a comprehensive set of guidelines and procedures to help ensure that your daughter is using her device in an appropriate and responsible manner. We will also provide training and support to help her use her laptop effectively and safely.
We are also running an optional Digital Device Scheme which allows parents to rent or purchase a Dell device through our partner, Easy4U (Class Technology Solutions), including a device full hardware service and accident damage cover.
What To Buy
The device must meet the following as a minimum in terms of functionality.
|Screen||Touch Screen of 11 Inches or greater|
|Detachable or flip screen to enable flat writing using a stylus|
|Operating System||Windows 11|
|Main Memory||Minimum 8GB RAM|
|Battery||10 hours or more on one charge. Please note there are charging cabinets in school should the need arise to charge during the school day|
|A camera for video and still image processing|
|The ability to play and record audio|
|Small in-ear headphones|
|Software||Microsoft Office (O365) is provided free of charge via the school|
We understand that parents value flexibility, which is why Easy4U have two options available.
Option 1: Rent
With the rental option, parents are required to pay a deposit equivalent to the first four months of rental, followed by monthly rental fees. At the end of the agreement, our dedicated customer service team will reach out to the parents to discuss whether they would like to keep the device or return it. If you decide to keep the device, we consider the deposit as the final payment. If you choose to return the device, we will assess it for fair wear and tear, and upon receiving it back, we will refund the deposit to you.
Option 2: Purchase
With the purchase option, parents can fully own the device. The cost of the device cannot be spread over time. You will still benefit from all the Easy4u advantages, including hardware service and support.

In addition to our extensive enrichment programme Kinza, and co-curricular clubs and societies, girls also have the option of taking part in further music tuition and dramatic performance lessons (LAMDA).
As you plan ahead for September, we hope it is helpful to outline the trials and clubs that will be available outside of school hours.
Musical Instrument and/or Singing TuitionWe are delighted to offer pupils the opportunity to learn a musical instrument or take singing lessons. Lessons are delivered by a team of visiting teachers. Pupils follow a structured course in technique and repertoire developing their confidence as performers. Learning an instrument or taking singing lessons brings with it a host of additional benefits, including the development of self-esteem, communication skills, co-ordination skills and self-discipline. Participation in co-curricular music encourages the development of social awareness, team building and leadership skills as well as offering opportunities for visiting new places and meeting new people. If you would like your daughter to take instrumental/singing lessons at school, please complete the form by Friday 29 September via the link below. The following options are available:
