Academically high-achieving, rounded and responsible, Putney is as down-to earth as it is dynamic.
Made in Putney
Our results are exceptional but our students are exemplary. They question, challenge, explore and share. They open their minds, form opinions and are open to having their thoughts challenged. They are fearless: to try, to fail and to succeed.
Our girls try anything – a new instrument, a different sport, a fresh skill. When they’ve mastered them, they’ll start their own club. School life begins with lessons but our students’ interests take them far beyond.
Ours is a down-to-earth and considerate community where students create lifelong friendships. They are encouraged to work together, to support and to care for those with whom they share their school years.
We select girls with potential, but we believe that they are made in Putney.
Our results compete with the very best in London. We perform to the very highest academic standards, and those standards continues to rise. Our teachers are inspirational, using their own professional accomplishments to lead by example.
This solid foundation in scholarship allow our girls to go further in their education and when they leave us, Putney students have the opportunity to join the world’s most prestigious universities, art colleges and conservatoires. After that, they have the chance to take on the world. And when they do, they really make a difference.
Putney pupils are never “spoon fed”. They learn to discover, to question and to consider the concepts they encounter.
Fuelled by a relentless curiosity, every pupil’s journey through the school helps her to become a confident and ambitious learner, eager to find her passions, to fulfil her potential and ultimately to forge her own path, whatever that may be.
Agile, creative thinking is key to a Putney education. In every subject from mathematics and computing to languages and humanities, the approach to learning is innovative and forward thinking.
From animation workshops in the Junior School to explorations of the impact of VR and AI in the Senior School, we are future-proofing our students’ education, ensuring they leave us digitally literate and fully prepared for 21st century careers.
Exciting and Enabling
Academic excellence is only half the story. Life at Putney is about giving pupils the freedom to explore what excites them and the opportunity to broaden their passions. There is so much to get involved in – from sports teams, to musical and dramatic performances, competition and debate across the country, and international trips to experience other cultures and practise foreign languages.
Learning is at the heart of everything we do. But it’s just the start of what makes our school.
