The women's 10 metre platform, also reported as high diving, was one of four diving events on the Diving at the 1956 Summer Olympics programme.

The competition was held on both 10 and 5 metre platforms and split into two phases on different days:

  • Preliminary round (6 December) – Divers performed three voluntary dives of limited degrees of difficulty and one voluntary dive without limits. The twelve divers with the highest scores advanced to the final.
  • Final (7 December) – Divers performed two voluntary dives without any limits of difficulty. The final score was the aggregate of the preliminary and final rounds' points.
