Welcome from the Head

Grays Convent High School is a Catholic voluntary aided comprehensive school for girls, described in our recent Ofsted as a "good school". Our pupils travel from a wide geographical area to attend this very successful school and our community includes pupils from differing faiths.

We believe at Grays Convent that if the relationships and values are right, then all else will follow. Pupils are at their happiest working hard for teachers they like and respect, teachers who encourage and challenge them to do their best. Our excellent examination results demonstrate that high quality teaching and learning are at the heart of what we do. Our value added score shows that children make more progress at our school than nationally, in the top 30% of schools in the country, and  with our English Baccalaureate entries, a measure of academic success in core academic subjects, the highest in the borough, you can see that academic progress is important to us.

We are a forward looking school ...

As a Catholic school, we have always supported charity events each year and raised numerous amounts for our more needy friends.  We would like to thank the parents, students and staff involved in supporting many causes but once again, we’d like to ask for your support. 

As you may have been aware, Nepal was hit by a massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake on Saturday April 25th. This has affected much of Nepal and its people including a number of the families of the pupils in the school.  As a school, we’d like to support this tragedy by helping to raise money for vital aid through several charity events in the school.

Our first charity event, Step up for Nepal will commence on Wednesday, 6th May.  It will be organized, co-ordinated and run by Year 10 pupils and will involve all the year groups as they all will be taking part in a dance and step activity for one hour.  Pupils are asked to donate a minimum of £1.00 to participate but we would ask them to try and raise £5.00 each through sponsorship. (Forms are available from your daughter’s form tutor).  Please note y our daughter will also need to wear their PE kit throughout the day.

Secondly, on a date yet to be confirmed, four Nepali students will help our canteen staff to cook Nepali food during lunch time.  Each meal ordered from the Nepali menu will raise a donation to our appeal; so on this occasion we’d like to request that you send your child with small change as drinks and dessert will be provided separately.

On a further date another charity event will include a massive cake sale.  Year 10 pupils will be encouraged to bring an item of confectionary each for this sale. Fun events such as a teacher’s karaoke or a fashion show may also be organized.  All pupils are encouraged to participate and donate to help this worthy cause.

We thank you and are truly grateful for your loyal and consistent support.
