What says..

This is a gentle school with a real focus on fun and imagination. Children here aren’t pushed to achieve or to go in any particular direction, but they see all around them examples of how learning can change their lives. Pupils told us that the recently formed Eco Warriors club was a particular favourite among juniors. This perhaps builds on the WGS tradition of developing the social conscience of the community-spirited young women in its care – or maybe it’s just a chance to get muddy growing strawberries and then eat them with cream.

What the school says...

There are few things more important than choosing the right school for your child. The special atmosphere at Withington Junior School encourages creative and independent thinking and extends each girl not just academically but in every area of her life.

Our Junior School has the advantage of being able to retain its small size and its individual character whilst benefiting from its close links with the Senior School. Our excellent team of Junior Staff teach their subject specialisms in the Senior School and Senior Staff teach juniors. Each form has a trained 6th form peer supporter, which strengthens the links across the age range. Junior girls are offered a great variety of cultural experiences, visiting galleries, museums, concerts and theatres. The school also welcomes an exciting range of visiting speakers, and plays host to authors, poets and drama workshops.

In this lively environment, well structured but warm and friendly, Withington girls flourish and grow into balanced, happy, confident young people. We invite you to come and visit us and see for yourself all that Withington has to offer.

Head

Since 2004, Mrs Kathryn Burrows (50s). She has a geography degree from St Andrews University and a PGCE from Bristol. She trained as a senior school teacher, specialising in geography and PE, but she only did a couple of years teaching, in Northern Ireland, before spending a good 10 years outside the system. During this time she was an army wife – moving from posting to posting, taking up opportunities when they came along (she taught tennis in Cyprus at one point) and raising four children along the way. Since returning to live a more settled life in the UK, she returned to her old primary school – Lady Barn House – as head of games and later moved to Withington as head of the junior school. She went to Withington herself – as...
