Fairfield High School for Girls is delighted to be reporting another set of outstanding exam results. Congratulations to the class of 2016. Well done to each and every one of you. There are many girls who have achieved way beyond expectations
The percentage of pupils achieving the headline figure of 5 A*-C including English and Maths was almost 80% and is equal to our best ever performance. The progress of disadvantaged girls was particularly pleasing. We are also very pleased with the very high number of A and A* grades. Progress across the curriculum is exceptional in many areas.
Many thanks must go to staff and governors, families and friends of families who have helped the girls achieve so much through what can be a very challenging time.
Once again, congratulations to the class of 2016, we are incredibly proud of you, and all your achievements. Well done.
New job vacancies are available on our recruitment page.

In 2013 Fairfield High School for Girls was recognised by Ofsted as outstanding in all areas. It is now our ambition to move beyond outstanding.
At Fairfield, the Governors, Headteacher, Senior Leadership Team and all Staff work together within a tradition of care and service to promote the highest academic standards for all our pupils. We have very high expectations of behaviour and appearance reflecting excellent standards in the classroom. We believe outstanding academic success and personal development are complimentary. We pride ourselves on achieving excellence in a caring environment.
By the time a girl leaves Fairfield we aim to create:
Fairfield High School is one of the oldest all-girls schools in the country, and has been a source of optimism for young women and their families in this area for over 200 years. We have seen many changes. We owe our existence to the Moravian Church, a Protestant body originating in the 15th century, in what is now the Czech Republic. The Moravians believed it was their Christian duty to educate the young and ran schools for boys and girls.
In 1796 Sister Mary Tyrrell opened a small girls' boarding school. By 1881 the school had moved to the former Sister's house (now the Moravian College). In 1906 we moved to the present main buildings. By this time Fairfield was gaining a reputation for academic excellence, as the Honours Boards testify.
After the First World War, Fairfield became a grammar school and changed to a comprehensive school in 1980.
In September 2004, as part of the Specialist Schools Programme, we became a Science College. Although we promote and encourage the role of women in our fast-moving, science-based, technological society, we continue to offer a broad and balanced curriculum.
We are now an 11-16 Academy, providing a high quality education for 975 girls. Ofsted recognised us as outstanding in all areas in January 2013. Since then we have continued to go from strength to strength and in 2015 we achieved the best results in the history of the school.
At Fairfield we asked stakeholders to tell us what they think it means to be part of our community. This was the result:
Fairfield High School for Girls is an outstanding school. This was confirmed by our January 2013 Ofsted inspection. All groups of students make outstanding progress because of outstanding teaching.
All students have a high regard for their teachers; they enjoy lessons and follow carefully the very helpful advice and guidance given by their teachers. The behaviour of students in and outside of the classroom is exemplary. Their excellent attitudes help them to learn extremely well.
The Headteacher's commitment and determination to improve the school are shared by staff, students and parents. Senior Leaders and the governing body rigorously pursue excellence.
