Welcome from the Head

Grays Convent High School is a Catholic 11-16 Voluntary Aided comprehensive school for girls, described by Ofsted as a ‘good school’ with ‘outstanding behaviour for learning’. Our excellent examination results and pupil progress score, well above national and Thurrock averages, demonstrate that high quality teaching and learning are at the heart of what we do. As a result, girls travel from a wide geographical area to attend this very successful school.

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. Attendance is very high as girls enjoy coming to school. Our close knit small-school community means that every girl can be known as an individual, and developing girls into self-confident, articulate, ambitious and well qualified young women is our core purpose.
