The Curriculum

A broad and stimulating mastery approach, with technology used at every level fosters a love of learning and bolsters self- confidence, creativity, and critical thinking, helping girls to maximise their potential. We support and stretch in equal measure

Games & the Arts

Wide variety of sports, e.g. netball, hockey, tennis, football, rugby, cricket, cross-country, athletics, and swimming. Exceptionally strong music, art & DT, and drama departments. New art and DT block. On-site cookery school.

Pastoral Care

Small class sizes, an excellent tutor system and mindfulness and wellbeing programmes built into the curriculum.  We nurture the whole child and focus on developing individual strengths, so that when girls leave at 11 or 13, they are happy, well-rounded individuals, academically and socially prepared to tackle the future with confidence.

Recent Scholarships

25 percent of leavers win awards across all areas at both 11 and 13. 17 scholarships to 11 schools in 2022. Senior exit schools include mix of London day (e.g. Alleyn’s, Emanuel, Francis Holland, JAGS, Streatham & Clapham High, Woldingham) and out of town boarding (e.g. Benenden, Bradfield, Downe House, Marlborough, St Mary’s, Ascot, Sherborne, Wellington).

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

We prepare for life, not just the next school. Girls are stimulated, supported, and stretched in equal measure and helped to develop the essential skills of creativity, critical thinking, resilience, independence, and confidence that are so important for future success.
