Putney High School

Putney High School has a reputation for providing the challenge of a rich and inspiring education for bright girls aged 4 – 18. Their ethos is one of putting girls first, with academic excellence, wellbeing and opportunity at its heart. Achieved by:

• Developing a culture of intellectual agility, with girls stretched, challenged and supported by staff keen to nurture the same sense of academic curiosity that they themselves enjoy.
• Creating a warm community, where girls have fun and can take risks, secure in the knowledge they are in a safe environment.
• Offering outstanding opportunity in Art, Design, Drama, Music and Sport. We want girls to get involved, try new things and develop confidence, building leadership and other key skills.
• Inspiring a sense of ambition and adventure.
• Leading in digital innovation – all girls have their own iPads, for example.
We want girls to have a voice, to take ownership in all aspects of their school life.
Facilities range from a Performing Arts Centre, with professional sound and lighting, and a state-of-the-art Sixth Form Centre to a boathouse on Putney embankment.

Students go on to some of the best universities around the world, from Stanford in the USA to Oxford, Cambridge, LSE and Durham amongst others, as well as music conservatoires and art colleges.

“A spirit of innovation, openness and creativity” pervades Putney High School, concluded the Independent Schools Inspectorate in Autumn 2015, awarding them the highest possible grading in every category.
