The Curriculum

Our forward-thinking, knowledge-rich curriculum gives the girls the knowledge and skills required to thrive in modern Britain. It is designed to ensure our girls are prepared to succeed in the 11+ examinations for top London day and country boarding schools. As a Thinking School, we equip pupils with the tools to tackle problems, increasing persistence and positivity in their learning. This builds on their ability to explain their thinking and learning, both in and out of the classroom.

Games & the Arts

Games, music, art and drama are thought by our own specialist teachers, giving all of our girls the best opportunity to flourish athletically and creatively. LAMDA and instrumental lessons are also available.

Pastoral Care

We are a family school, incorporating Peregrines Nursery School, where every child and parent is known to all staff. We encourage parents to be active partners, operating an ‘open door’ policy so any problems are dealt with efficiently. We promote an anti-bullying ethos and the Falcons Rules are upheld with clearly defined rewards and sanctions. Our ‘Girls on Board’ approach also helps the girls, their parents and teachers to understand the dynamics of female friendships and provides pupils with the ability to find their own solutions to fallouts. In our dedicated Wellbeing Hub, the School Counsellor facilitates opportunities to discuss feelings and emotions, both with whole year groups and in one-to-one sessions.

Senior Exit Schools

St Paul’s Girls’ School, Ibstock Place School, Putney High School, Wimbledon High School, Kingston Grammar School, St James Senior Girls’ School, Francis Holland School – Sloane Square and Lady Eleanor Holles School.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

Happy children are successful learners, which is why emotional literacy and academic buoyancy are essential skills. Teaching your daughter, from the start and in an age-related way, how to overcome challenges and develop positive, flourishing relationships will ensure she deals successfully with life’s ebbs and flows – both in and out of school – and develop in her a lifelong love of learning.
