Life at Putney has a very special feel to it. We believe that from the moment a student steps through our doors, she should feel safe, supported and free to be herself. As a result, the happiness, personal development and wellbeing of our pupils comes before all else.
We want to cultivate the individual. We do this by providing the appropriate environment to hear every child’s voice. In a school where everyone genuinely knows each other’s names, girls learn to build the foundations of true friendships and positive relationships. They gain skills in teamwork, group study and empathy; supporting one another in their learning and their lives. We really are a community, and with that comes a strong moral awareness for how to be a positive and productive member of that community.
Pupils know that they can always talk to any adult, not just their class teacher. However, it is the students themselves who shape the culture of our school. Therefore, we listen to, encourage and support each and every one of them as they embark on their learning journey.
