What says..

Because they expect a lot from the girls from an early stage, there’s a big push on them taking responsibility for themselves from the off. ‘If you don’t turn up for a practice, you don’t stay on the team.’ We found girls have quite a competitive attitude to learning, although they are also quick to support and praise others’ achievements, with lots of patting on backs and high fives. Seriously good school to consider if you have mobility problems or are wheelchair-bound – flattish site, lifts and wide corridors, plus can-do approach...

What the school says...

The Lady Eleanor Holles School is one of the country's most distinguished girls' schools. Located in Hampton, Middlesex, on the outskirts of south-west London, we balance opportunities for outstanding scholarship with impressive achievements in sport and exciting creativity in arts.

With superb facilities, we offer bright girls a well-rounded and challenging education in a very happy, purposeful environment, preparing them for higher education and their future lives. The school stands on a wonderful 23 acre site, the building surrounded by gardens and playing fields. This spacious environment allows a great range of outdoor sporting activities and has also enabled us to build numerous extensions to enhance our facilities.

Pastoral care has a high priority at the school, and staff are committed to promoting the welfare and happiness of each girl. Up to 20% of each year group may proceed to university at Oxford or Cambridge; the majority go on to universities which belong to the prestigious Russell Group.

Headmistress

Since 2014, Heather Hanbury, previously head of Wimbledon High. MA Edinburgh, MSc Cambridge in geography then land economy. Prior to teaching, she spent nine years working in various management consultancy roles in the City, then as a corporate fundraiser – ‘real world’ experience that both pupils and parents value. Moved into teaching because she was so frequently told she ‘should’ – ‘but I initially resisted it because I don't like to do the expected,’ she laughs. Eventually had a change of heart and took a PGCE with the express ambition of becoming a head. ‘I always wanted to run things. I like making organisations efficient, effective and happy’ – something that everyone agrees she’s achieved, with bells on.

Began her teaching career at Blackheath High School in 1996, quickly rising...
