What the school says...

The school was founded in 1873 and was the first school to be established by the Girls' Day School Trust (GDST) which has long been at the forefront of education for girls. Our girls successfully gain places at some of the best day and boarding schools in London and the country.

We encourage independence, individuality and questioning thinking and win praise for our nurturing approach, rich curriculum and outstanding academic results.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

Special Education Needs

We have a Learning Support Co-ordinator and an Assistant Learning Support Co-ordinator, who manage support for all the girls with special educational needs. We screen children through our regular assessment procedures throughout their school career, along with teacher input, and pupils receive extra support at different levels where necessary. They may require small group support by a teaching assistant, or extra teacher input in the classroom, or at a greater level of need, withdrawal for group support by a teaching assistant or by a teacher. We may ask parents to refer their daughter to an Educational Psychologist, and sometimes these girls are then supported 1:1 by a teacher with Special Needs qualifications. The latter is an extra on the bill. Parents are closely involved at the latter stages. March 2010
