On entering the Putney High School Sixth Form you will become a part of a vibrant, university-style community.

Existing pupils find they enjoy more autonomy, and those joining us from other schools quickly make new friends and feel at home in a purpose-built Sixth Form Centre.

A Level Choices

In our Sixth Form, students typically study three or four A Levels across a wide range of options. They have a free choice of subjects, meaning that our curriculum offering can be truly personalised, preparing girls for whatever career they wish to pursue after Putney.


Sixth Form Curriculum

For subjects new to the Sixth Form, there are a number of specific requirements detailed in our A Level Choices handbook.

If you wish to pursue more than three full A Level subjects including Further Mathematics, the entry requirements may be higher.

Putney was never for one type of girl. Yes it was academic, but it was also for the curious, the iconoclast, the creative, and for girls who wanted to change the world.

Bursaries & Scholarships

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. Every 11+ application is automatically considered for an Academic Scholarship and these are awarded on merit.  We also offer Sport and Music scholarships.
