Pupils here take a demanding curriculum, with nine and half subjects kept going until GCSE, including a compulsory modern language, ICT and RE. Has specialist status in science and maths and 25 girls a year take all three sciences. Everyone, however, benefits from the science enrichment programme, with a multitude of speakers from UCL and Imperial College (both of which offer work placements). ‘Many of the girls come from backgrounds where there is limited experience of...
