What says..

Small size means it feels like home, thought one pupil, who had felt diminished by numbers and lack of attention at previous school. ‘Here, teachers will pick a girl who is calm and puts her hand up nicely. In my old school, they just picked the noisiest.’ Looking after people is something everyone here does well, from lunches (cheerful chef, in at 6am to get homemade bread and biscuit on the go), to learning support. Life skills training for both boys and girls is on the horizon...

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

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

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2016, Mrs Dina Mallett BA QTS (40s). First headship – was previously deputy head of the City of London School for Girls Prep for over eight years. Before that, nine years at Dulwich Prep London. Early dream careers (gymnast and judge) were overturned by a combination of memorable English teacher (‘like Mr Twit – had beard with food in it’) who inspired a love of Chaucer and work experience at local primary that sold her on the joy of teaching younger pupils.

Drawn to the school because of the friendliness of staff and girls and the green setting, she was appointed after an interview process that included questions from the girls (among them, ‘Are you strict?’ and ‘If you come here, can we have hockey?’).
