What the school says...
The Lady Eleanor Holles School, Junior Department is proud of its ethos of excellence within a family atmosphere, and seeks to develop bright, happy and confident girls, who mostly join us at 7 from a wide range of independent and maintained schools. The majority proceed to the Senior Department at eleven, through the school's 11+ entry procedures. Standards are high, and girls generally work in advance of their chronological age and standard year group.
The Lady Eleanor Holles School, Junior Department occupies a very attractive building, Burlington House, the classrooms are large, light and airy. There are superb specialist rooms and Junior girls make full use of the school's magnificent sports facilities including an indoor heating swimming pool. The school stands on a wonderful 30 acre site, and the girls enjoy their own play area, with a trim trail and climbing frame, and their own dining room.
