This is the kind of school girls run into each morning.

Our pupils have a sense of belonging and pride in being a Putney girl. We give girls the time and space to discover the joy of learning, enabling them to reveal their strengths, passions and the person they are becoming. We recognise and celebrate the individual, encouraging pride in what they can do, as well as ambition for what they can’t do just yet.

We believe that childhood is a time to explore. Our pupils take a passionate interest in the world around them and are prepared to take risks in everything they do. In their classrooms and in their outdoor exploration, Putney girls are fearless in the face of the unknown. They listen, ask questions and take every opportunity to lead their own learning. We create self-starters, who know what to do when they don’t know what to do.

I am proud to lead a school of passionate young girls who are excited by their learning, confident in their endeavours and embrace any challenge set for them.

Enjoying every day

Life at Putney High Junior School is varied. Pupils spend their days in a friendly community where any child can talk to any teacher – they are all available for support. We encourage pupils to use their voice, but also to value each other’s opinions. Academics are essential, but a child’s life at school is what determines their discovery of who they are.

Getting ready for Junior School

Starting school is a momentous occasion, for both pupils and parents. Your daughter should feel both excited and prepared for the journey that lies ahead. When your daughter is offered a place at Putney High Junior School, we will help you to build her independence. We offer suggestions on how she might become responsible for her cardigan, coat and shoes; be open to joining in and helping, and develop the sense of identity which will help her to try new things.

Join us

Your daughter is full of potential. She doesn’t yet know her strengths, her passions or the person she might one day become. But we’d like to help her on her way.

Our Junior School admissions process looks at performance in entrance tests and how a girl gets on in a classroom situation.

We’re not looking for the finished article. We’re looking for potential Putney pupils who are not afraid to try, to learn, to participate and to grow. By the time a girl leaves us, she’ll have developed into a lifelong learner, who knows that there is nothing she can’t do.
