This is extremely fascinating to us as, unfortunately, records of the history of this part of our school (which we moved our Senior School & Sixth Form to in 1994, after it had been home to The Church Army since 1965) are limited. Please keep us updated on any discoveries!

Good luck to all our YR11 and YR13 students who are starting our new Excelerate 2020 summer curriculum today. Both programmes help to prepare our students for the next step in their educational journey. Here’s more on our YR 13 Programme


Academic studies are brought to life by frequent visits and trips and our girls benefit greatly from learning outside of the classroom. Our extensive programme of trips begins from Nursery School age, with girls enjoying residential trips from Year 5, and continues into Sixth Form.

Trips, such as a recent visit to Iceland, develop strong global and cultural awareness.

Our students visit conferences, museums, art galleries, theatres, farms, and many other places of interest. We are fortunate to be close enough to Central London to take advantage of its wealth of opportunities, while also having good transport routes to rural areas of Kent and Sussex and Europe.

Residential trips allow more time for in-depth learning and bring many other benefits including the development of independence and confidence.
