The Curriculum

A broad, stimulating mastery approach with technology used at every level, promoting self-confidence, creativity, and critical thinking. Beyond the classroom, girls collaborate with Broomwood boys, for academic extension, sharing specialist teaching and facilities. 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 with 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, prepared to tackle the future with confidence.

Recent Scholarships

Awards across all areas at both 11 and 13. Seven scholarships and places awarded to 18 schools in 2023. Senior exit schools include mix of day (e.g., Alleyn’s; Emanuel; Francis Holland; JAGS; Streatham & Clapham High; Woldingham) and boarding (e.g., Benenden; Bradfield; Downe House; Brighton College; Marlborough; St Mary’s; Ascot; Sherborne; Wellington).

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

We prepare for life, not just for the next school. Girls are stimulated, supported, and stretched in equal measure. We help them to develop creativity, resilience, independence, and confidence. Our results are outstanding and last a lifetime. 

Outstanding Characteristics

The only all-girls’ prep school preparing for both 11+ and 13+ in SW London. Broomwood girls are happy, confident and rounded individuals and are well prepared for future success. ‘Excellent in all areas’ in a recent ISI Inspection. Together with Broomwood Pre-Prep and Broomwood Prep – Boys, children aged 3-13 years are inspired to #BeYourBEST.
