Surbiton High School is a highly academic school with strong results in Science, as well as a centre of artistic excellence, every year sending many girls to read Fine Art at some of the most prestigious universities across the country. Surbiton has also been successful in gaining places for its pupils at overseas universities, such as Stephanie who will be attending the University of Michigan. Several pupils, who have been at the school since the age of four, have achieved outstanding results, namely Giselle (3 A*s and 1 A) who is going on to read medicine at UCL, and Amy (4 A*s), who is going to Durham University to read Natural Sciences.
There were many outstanding individual performances at Surbiton High School.

Ann Haydon, Principal, commented, “I am really proud of the results achieved by our girls once again this year. It’s a true reflection of the hard work and commitment both by the pupils and staff. Not only do Surbiton High School girls achieve highly academically, they excel in sport, drama and music and are inspired by role models such as three times Olympian and School governor, Andrew Triggs Hodge, who has just gained his third Gold medal rowing in the Men’s coxed eight in Rio.”
