We don’t believe in excessive tutoring, or testing in subjects that your child won’t have studied at school, so our exam consists simply of English and Mathematics and is based on the Year 6 National Curriculum.

Although we are academically selective, we also place importance on the 11+ interview, references from your daughter’s previous school, and may also take account of other relevant factors or circumstances.

Selection is based upon academic merit but also on our assessment of whether a pupil will flourish within our community.

Financial Assistance


Although we are academically selective we are “means blind”, and do everything we can to ensure that girls with promise are able to benefit from a Putney education regardless of their parents’ ability to afford fees.

More about bursaries


Our scholarship programme is designed to recognise potential and offer opportunity. Expectation is high and our staff work with scholars to nurture their progress.  The award of a scholarship brings opportunities and scholars are expected to participate fully in the life of the school.

In the Senior School we offer Academic, Music and Sport scholarships at 11+ (Year 7 entry).  For girls aged 16+, Academic, Art, Design, Drama, Music and Sport scholarships are available. Travel scholarships in Modern Foreign Languages and Sciences are also available for internal applicants.

More about scholarships


Come and see the school at our Open Day events. Parents and pupils are welcome to attend.

Our next 11+ Open Day is on Friday 13 March 2020.

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.
