Home School Agreement

At Simon Langton Girls’ Grammar School all members of staff and governors will do all they can to help our students reach their full academic and personal potential. As well as offering access to a formal curriculum and preparing students for public examinations, we encourage everyone to take part in a wide range of additional opportunities outside the classroom. Research, debates and investigations in science, psychology, technology, languages, the Arts and humanities offer an extension to academic interests and often help students make important choices about future degree courses and careers. Music, sport, conservation, drama and volunteering help to create a purposeful and contented community and students’ participation builds their confidence, self-esteem, empathy and sense of belonging. 

We expect all our students to:

•    attend school regularly, make sure you arrive on time and are always prepared to work; 
•    wear your uniform correctly and with pride; 
•    do all that you can to live up to the school’s expectations for sensible behaviour, reliability and contribution to            the community; 
•    complete your work to the standards and deadlines expected by your teachers; 
•    always work to a standard which reflects your best ability;
