What says..

Immensely sensible ‘no bag’ policy. You take your bag to your locker, take out what you need and can’t go back for the next two hours. Result – no-one bashes you with a rucksack in a corridor, no heaps of bags at entrances and everyone has to think ahead. Hooray! This school is assuredly not a haven for those who would struggle elsewhere and anyone who applies with this in mind ‘is under an illusion from the distant past when the school was…

What The Good Schools Guide says

Headmistress

Since 2000, Mrs Anna Sylvester-Johnson BA PGCE – known to all as 'Mrs SJ' (50s). Previously head of The Arts Educational School in Turnham Green, prior to which she taught at The Lycée and before that she was head of English at The Green School for Girls in Isleworth. An interesting and eclectic mix. Chic, svelte and very much in control, she is a mix of smiley and steely. That she has made the school the success it is today is beyond doubt. The splendid new-build that has transformed the school and the elegance and taste with which no visitor could fail to be impressed will be a lasting monument to her drive and commitment.

Head of prep school, since 2015, is Marion MacDonald.
