What says..

A private house until 1918, the school was founded for young ladies from Yorkshire and had boarders until the mid-1990s. Nowadays it’s attended by immaculately turned out stockbroker belt girls. Large, brightly decorated classrooms proudly display girls’ work with barely a centimetre of bare wall on show – a theme continued throughout the school, which is festooned from top to bottom with high quality artistic endeavours from screen prints and puppets to hand-made pop-up books. Parents and girls say sport is still top dog, with Maltman’s girls - those that make the rather exclusive...

What the school says...

A message from the Headmistress, Mrs Walker: "We offer a kind and nurturing environment where our small classes and dedicated staff mean that your daughter is known as an individual and will feel supported, inspired and encouraged to achieve her very best. Founded in 1918 to provide a unique educational experience for girls, we are proud of our School’s rich heritage. We continue today to be utterly committed to providing a forward thinking all-girls education, ensuring each child in our care not only achieves academic success, but is enabled to develop her character, self-confidence and initiative too.

Our large classrooms, spacious campus and fantastic facilities mean that your daughter will be able to achieve “excellence with a sense of fun”, learning and playing in beautiful surroundings and able to thoroughly enjoy her prep school years. Not only this, but in these unprecedented times, where home learning has been an integral part of what we offer our pupils, at Maltman’s Green we have seen how important it is to provide an evolving, innovative learning environment where our girls have ubiquitous access to technology and are equipped with the skills required to become independent learners.

I believe that an excellent education builds pupils’ self-belief, fosters a growth mind-set and develops that all-important emotional resilience. It is important to celebrate effort and not just the final result so that our children can feel free to try new things without fear of failure. Each girl is given every opportunity to find her passions and unlock her talents. We are proud of our strong track record at 11+, with our girls moving onto top senior schools in both the independent and state sectors. Our lastest results show an 84% qualification rate in the Bucks Secondary Transfer Test (11+).

Our girls are happy, confident, sociable and outward looking. I am proud of the breadth of our dynamic extra-curricular and clubs programme, which means that each child’s character is developed as they enjoy challenge beyond the classroom in sport, music and drama.

It is my privilege to be the Headmistress of this fantastic School. Please come and visit and get to know us better. I look forward to meeting with you and exploring how we can work together to give your daughter the best possible start."
