What says..

Well mannered, cheerful girls drift around the building in their navy uniform with pink stripes. Smart, but not overly starchy, and with a few designer brands dotted here and there. Our year 12 tour guide was full of beans, bright and confident. ‘Best thing I ever did was leaving my other school for this lovely, much smaller school.’ Just don’t call this school a ‘hidden gem’- it really gets the head’s back up, warned one parent. ‘Ms Hagerty wants this to be a school that people know about, not just…

Head

Since 2021, Faith Hagerty. She came from St Augustine’s Priory, Ealing, where she worked for 14 years as drama teacher, head of department, head of sixth form and finally deputy head.

Special Education Needs

The majority of learning needs are accommodated within the classroom by the subject teacher. As classes are smaller than in many independent schools, a high level of individual support can be provided. Where necessary, based on evidenced need, learning support may be provided outside classes, on an individual or small group basis. Such support will have a specific focus, for example, reading fluency, reading comprehension, spelling, writing. We always view girls holistically taking into account their interests, aspirations and emotions in supporting them. Girls with a range of special educational needs and difficulties have progressed to university and we encourage all pupils to aim high and achieve their best. We have an excellent support network based around the Form Tutor and our PSHE programme.
