Most of our pupils are far too young to think about their future careers. But what we do want our girls to think about is their passions. Pupils arrive at Putney aged four and begin learning the basis of primary curriculum. But they also start discovering what they enjoy.
Whether it’s music, sport, or taking part in the School council, Putney girls are encouraged to pursue their passions with the same vigour as their academics. They have the opportunity to explore a wide range of activities, trying skills they’ve never before encountered.
A large number of girls in the Junior School learn one or more musical instruments, take up gym or join the school councils, skills which then feed back into their academic work.
So as not to overwhelm them during the start of their school career, clubs for Reception pupils don’t start until the summer term, when they have settled into school life.
