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.

Our students create lifelong friendships. They are encouraged to work together, to support and to care for the girls with whom they share their school years. Ours is a down-to-earth and considerate community, where girls can be themselves and find their friends.

We select girls with potential, but we believe that they are made in Putney.

Academically Outstanding

Our results compete with the very best in London. We perform at the very highest standard, and that standard continues to rise. Our teachers are inspirational, using their own professional accomplishments to lead by example.

The academic focus at Putney, our achievements and educational reputation allow our girls to go further in their education. 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.

The women of the future

Intellectually Curious

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.

Forward Thinking

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.
