What says..

Cross-curricular learning is embedded here and our guides stared when we told them about the rigid subject boundaries we met elsewhere. 'Oh no, we used Excel, Word and Paint for our geography project research on families - there was a lot of maths, especially geometry, when we made graphs when we used the census data,' we learned.  No slacking but no-one seems to want to slack. 'We're pushed hard in reading,' one girl told us. 'The librarian tells us that we can read harder books so we try and we really like it!'

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since September 2013, Mrs Gabrielle Solti BA PGCE (40s), previously head of Notting Hill and Ealing Junior School for 10 years. A welcome home-coming - she commuted from Hampstead while working in Ealing and previously taught at Trevor-Roberts, after which she was deputy head of Primrose Hill Primary. A highly experienced and much-admired head whose tenure here began simultaneously with that of the prevous senior school head, Helen Pike (now heading Magdalen College School) - providing a significant injection of energy, inspiration and ability across both schools.
