We value our alumnae community hugely and hope that, whatever you are doing now, you will enjoy being part of our alumnae network, staying in touch with friends, telling us your news, and above all, remaining a part of the ongoing life of our school.

High Choral Society

Enjoy together

Following the success of last year’s event, a date has been set for this year’s choir rehearsals and performance.

We are planning to sing Faure’s Requiem on Thursday 27 April 2023.

Rehearsal Times will be Mondays from 6.45pm – 8pm in the Large Music Room of Putney’s new Athena Centre on the following days: 

20, 27 February 2023
6, 13, 20, 27 March 2023
24 April 2023
27 April (afternoon) 2023

Please do come and join us! It was much enjoyed by all last year and we hope to see new faces and previous singers this year. You do not need previous experience of singing, nor the ability to read music with fluency (although great if you can!) Light refreshments will be provided prior to each rehearsal and it will not be a problem if you cannot attend all the rehearsals. Music and pencils will be provided.

If there is one thing that Putney High has taught me is don’t just work hard, work smart. Sometimes you need to take a step back to see the bigger opportunity, create your vision and set manageable goals to achieve it.

The History of Putney High School Alumnae

We have been educating girls since we first opened our doors as East Putney High School on 19 September 1893.

Both society and the school have come a long way since we welcomed those first 54 fearless young women, but our aims remain unchanged: to educate, to inspire and to prepare pupils from a range of backgrounds to find their passions, achieve their ambitions and to prepare them for a future filled with opportunity.

Our History

Alumnae Timeline

This timeline shows the history of the school, as well some highlights from our photo archive and the names of some of our notable alumnae.

Please note that the date in brackets next to an alumna’s name denotes their ‘class of’ (the year they and their classmates would have complete their A Levels/Year 13/Upper Sixth). For example, Ursula Owen (1955) is in the class of 1955.

If you would like to submit any photos to the school’s archive, please let us know by emailing  you may even find it features on our timeline!
