We often say that there is no such thing as a typical Putney girl and it’s true. Putney is a community of fun, bright, ambitious individuals, but there is one thing that unites them all, and that is a genuinely enthusiastic love of learning.

Putney pupils are spirited, vibrant and learn to think for themselves, but they also know how to have fun, and most importantly, to really enjoy their time at school. Yes, Putney students are noted for their many wonderful achievements, but they are characterised by their enthusiasm for taking part, their huge capacity for making friends, and above all, for their willingness to grasp with both hands the many opportunities on offer here.

Our pupils have a voice and we want them to understand that there are no limits to what is possible, that all doors are open to them, now and in the future. Intellectual agility, hard work and academic achievement are keys to success, but equally important are common sense, emotional intelligence and integrity, qualities that abound in the pupils at our school.

We equip every one of them with the skills and confidence to become a woman of distinction, happy, healthy and with a strong sense of identity, ready to tackle the 21st century world in which they’ll play a part, and crucially, secure in the knowledge that they’ll make wonderful school memories along the way.

As your daughter begins her exciting journey at Putney High School, learning will be a voyage of discovery. No two days are the same. In our happy and stimulating environment, her curiosity will be ignited, a genuine enthusiasm for learning developed and a ‘can do’ attitude instilled. We’ll spark her imagination and encourage her to embrace new challenges, eager to learn more.

There are many opportunities, in and beyond the classroom, for your daughter to think for herself and work with others, to discuss, challenge and collaborate, to explore and dig deeper. Hard work and effort is celebrated alongside independence and a sense of aspiration. Mistakes are welcomed – no learning journey is without bumps along the way.

Every girl is encouraged to be self-aware and self-confident yet also kind, thoughtful and aware of others in order to build meaningful friendships within a warm and nurturing environment, where they can laugh, have fun and learn together.
