Stamford High School provides education for girls aged 11 (Year 7) to 18 (Year 13). Sixth Form teaching is carried out jointly with Stamford School as of 2000. Currently there are 642 girls (588 day, 54 boarding) attending the school. The school belongs to the Stamford Endowed Schools, a member of the Headmasters' and Headmistresses' Conference.
The funds for the foundation of the High School and the further endowment of the existing boys' school were appropriated from the endowment of Browne's Hospital by Act of Parliament in 1871. This trust had originally been established for the relief of poverty by William Browne (died 1489), a wealthy wool merchant and alderman of the town, and his gift is commemorated in the name of a school house.
In recent years, the two schools have been united under the leadership of a single principal as the Stamford Endowed Schools. This organisation now comprises Stamford Junior School, a co-educational establishment for pupils aged between 2 and 11 years, Stamford School for boys aged 11–18, and Stamford High School catering for girls of the same age group. Sixth form teaching is carried out jointly between Stamford School and Stamford High School.
