About Plymouth High School for Girls

Plymouth High School for Girls is a smaller-than-average selective grammar school. Most students are of White British heritage and the vast majority speak English as their first language. The proportion of students known to be eligible for free school meals is well below the national average. The proportion with special educational needs and/or disabilities is well below the national figure. The proportion of students who have a statement of special educational needs is considerably lower than that found nationally. The school has held technology specialist status since 2004. The school was designated as a Training School in 2004 and works in partnership across a consortium of three other local schools to offer continuing professional development and initial teacher training opportunities. Up until this year the school worked as part of a local post-16 consortium. Although current Year 13 students are completing their sixth form study through the consortium offer, post-16 provision for current Year 12 students is provided by the school alone. The school was accredited as an International Baccalaureate World School in 2009 and is the designated International Baccalaureate (IB) school for the local authority. The school has gained several awards, including Healthy Schools and the International School awards.
