The Curriculum

A broad education, prioritising English, maths and science, while ensuring that children are stimulated with French, humanities, art, ICT, music, DT, food technology, horticulture and forest school/ outdoor education.

Games & The Arts

Drama is ambitious, with productions at the Kenton Theatre. Music is a strength, with wide range of instruments taught, orchestras, bands and renowned choirs. An improved games programme and a strong fixture list. Sports include: netball, hockey, swimming, athletics, tennis, cricket, rounders, football, gymnastics and cross-country.

Pastoral Care

The aim of each form teacher is to build self-esteem and nurture confidence in every child in their care. Happiness is our priority. Upper School children are given one-to-one time with their teacher to ensure that their needs are met. Numerous opportunities to perform, or speak in public, build self-assurance and poise.

Recent Scholarships

An average of 60 per cent of Year 6 girls over the last three years achieve scholarships to top secondary schools, including Queen Anne’s, St. George’s Ascot, St. Helen & St. Katharine, The Abbey, Pangbourne College, Piper’s Corner and Headington.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy
