What the school says...

The Lady Eleanor Holles School is one of the country's most distinguished girls' schools. Located in Hampton, Middlesex, on the outskirts of south-west London, we balance opportunities for outstanding scholarship with impressive achievements in sport and exciting creativity in arts.

With superb facilities, we offer bright girls a well-rounded and challenging education in a very happy, purposeful environment, preparing them for higher education and their future lives. The school stands on a wonderful 23 acre site, the building surrounded by gardens and playing fields. This spacious environment allows a great range of outdoor sporting activities and has also enabled us to build numerous extensions to enhance our facilities.

Pastoral care has a high priority at the school, and staff are committed to promoting the welfare and happiness of each girl. Up to 20% of each year group may proceed to university at Oxford or Cambridge; the majority go on to universities which belong to the prestigious Russell Group.

Exceptionally focused and purposeful atmosphere, in which girls are constantly reminded that they can do anything if they put their minds to it, with the school excelling in giving them the tools to achieve that. The girls work incredible hard, but they play hard too, and we found the school’s reputation as being a hothouse to be both unfair and ….
