"How did we do it? I'll tell you now, we didn't give up, we didn't know how". Everyone must read this incredible and empowering poem from one of our Year 3 pupils.


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.

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.
