It caters for pupils in academic years 7-11 and offers sixth form education.HistoryFounded in 1896 as Sidcup High School, which was a co-educational school located on the corner of Victoria Road, it later became Sidcup County School for Girls before moving to the new purpose-built main school building in 1931, which was expanded twice during the 1950s. After World War II, it became Chislehurst and Sidcup County Grammar School for Girls and in the 1950s Chislehurst and Sidcup Girls' Grammar School with the initials CSGGS on the blazer badge.
