I decided to join Putney at Sixth Form because of the amazing sense of community and togetherness that I'd seen.

Year 12 Pupil

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 circumstances.

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.

At 16+ we offer a number of scholarships, including Academic, Art, Design, Drama, Music and Sport, and these are awarded on merit. Travel scholarships in Modern Foreign Languages and Sciences are also available for internal applicants.

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.

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.
