Academic Overview

The Senior School has three forms in each year, with a maximum of twenty students in each form.  A third of the girls who join the Senior School in Year 7 come from our own Prep Department, which has one form in each year, while two thirds come from other preparatory and primary schools. Some students are admitted into other year groups at different times, depending on availability.

Teaching is organised in academic departments, the heads of which report to the Headmistress and the Director of Studies.  Students' academic progress is closely monitored and parents receive four grade sheets and two detailed reports throughout the course of the year as well as having a formal opportunity to meet their daughter's teachers every year to discuss progress. Higher Education and Careers advice are provided throughout the Senior School, with more focused guidance leading up to and during the process of selecting and applying to university.
