Spread across five buildings in Surbiton, this fantastic girls-only school also has a 39-acre sports facility a few miles away and a boathouse on the Thames. It’s an excellent all-rounder with a ‘Nourish to Flourish’ charter for wellbeing, national success in sports and trips that range from yoga and surfing in the South of France to tours of Peru, South America and Barbados.
Academic results are impressive, but pupils are also encouraged to learn outside the classroom, challenge themselves and develop a can-do attitude. About 90 per cent of leavers go on to Russell Group and top 10 universities, and careers education is exemplary. Inspire, encourage and empower are the buzzwords here and, judging by the young women we met, Surbiton is doing something very right.
Don’t panic! We have more than ten years’ experience of visiting schools and advising parents, and we are all parents ourselves – we can make this easier for you.
