Our Junior School is a lively and happy place, where we build a foundation of confidence, skills and an enjoyment of learning.

It is difficult, if not impossible, to capture in the pages of this website the warmth, friendship and happiness which characterises the Junior School. Walk in, and you will find an excited and engaged community – playing, learning, questioning and laughing. The only way to truly experience what we can offer is to visit us and we hope to welcome you to the school soon.

Mrs Karen Laurie, Head, and Mr Allistair Williamson, Head of Junior School

Our Junior School

The Junior School is located next door to the Senior School. We share the Senior School’s outstanding facilities and Senior School staff teach our girls in some subjects. Girls receive a first class education and first class care from four years old until they leave us at eleven. They then progress naturally to our Senior School without an additional entrance exam.

There are around 280 girls in the Junior School with two classes per year group. Families tend to live within a short drive or within walking distance of the school. We balance the pursuit of excellence with full participation. Everyone takes a full and active part in the school community, while individual talents are nurtured so that each girl develops her personal strengths and aptitudes.
