What says..

The lessons we observed showed focused, happy, relaxed, alert girls. We were greeted with broad smiles from everyone, staff and girls, whatever age and subject. Lovely to see. Rugby team very successful and thriving. Equestrian team fifth at Hickstead last year; water polo well supported. Attractive Edwardian main building, evocative space with Chesterfield sofas and high ceilings, with boards of head girls’ names mounted around the old hall. One name stands out: Margaret Roberts, who came back in 1980 as prime minister Margaret Thatcher to open the new Roberts Hall...

Academic matters

In 2016, 58 per cent A*/A grades at GCSE; 35 per cent A*/A at A level. Most girls take 10 GCSEs in a wide range of subjects, with the vast majority taking at least one language. French, German and Spanish are the options. High quality framed artwork displayed throughout the school, including a charming mural done by a group of previous year 13s. Newly opened art and drama block and large DT room full of equipment. New sixth form block, still being furnished when we visited. Very bright and cheerful with lots of computers and space, comfy sofas and quiet areas too. Maths, sciences and geography...
