Hi my daughter attended Sydenham for a few years. She started off at Oakfield Prep, then went onto join Sydenham High School. The school is a good school and I thought academically pushed the girls always at one level above. My daughter was very academic and achieved high grades in all her subjects. However our family moved abroad and my daughter was placed in a USA Catholic High School with a class of 12. It was only through assessments did I find out that despite my daughter being a high academic achiever in the UK, she lagged behind her US counterparts when tested. Realized that Sydenham was not Ofsted monitored, so no one was monitoring output of studies, grades or academia, this was all set in-house.
Good outcome due to positive competition, my daughter finished high school with 9.4 average and full scholarships with Ivy League colleges.
