What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2008, Louise Lawrance B Prim Ed, 40s. Mrs Lawrance grew up in South Africa, where she trained as an English specialist. Then spent five years in the state sector in Burton on Trent before taking a ‘gap’ year (‘I was in my late 20s and working every evening’), realising in the process that ‘I was really meant to be in teaching’. Returned to the UK, where she spent seven years at Gems Hampshire School in Chelsea (now the Hampshire School), the last three as head of the pre-prep. A relaxed and sympathetic presence, she continues to teach the youngest, and you have no difficulty believing that her ambition - ‘I spend my life trying to give girls the absolute best’ – is fully realised. Married, with a young son and daughter.
