At Putney High School we believe that reaching out to the local community means doing more than just fundraising, volunteering and sharing spaces – it involves sharing a whole mind-set.

We actively engage with the wider community and with local schools to develop the sense of empathy, responsibility and togetherness that allows us to broaden our horizons, improve our environment and learn from one another.

West London Schools

"Start It" Entrepreneurship Programme

Putney has teamed up with St Paul’s School to found an entrepreneurship programme designed to equip post-GCSE students from across West London with entrepreneurial skills.

Mixed teams including local schools, Fulham Boys and Christ’s School, Richmond work together with business experts to brainstorm creative ideas, problem-solve, negotiate and learn key skills for the future.

Cool to be Curious

Our Cool to be Curious collaboration with Roehampton University follows on from Cool to be Clever, a two year project aimed at raising the aspirations of local Year 5 pupils.

The project is particularly aimed at gifted and talented pupils who might be the first in their family to consider Higher Education. Putney’s Year 10 act as mentors to the younger children over the course of the project, looking at topics from Philosophy, STEM and the environment to Sports Science and Music.


Our students are willing role models and enjoy ‘giving back’ both within the school and to the wider community. You might start or lead a club or society, coach a school sports team, or become one of our many volunteers at the Royal Hospital for Neurodisability, or help local primary school children with their reading.



We are proud to be a collaborative, democratic and environmentally aware community. We encourage a sense of social responsibility, do everything we can to reduce our carbon footprint and our students campaign for what they believe in.

Eco captains lead the school in raising awareness and setting up volunteering opportunities or action days.

Pupils have a voice and a keen political awareness – campaigning and fundraising for local (and planetary!) initiatives.

House Charities

There are individual House charities, chosen by the girls and which receive money from that House’s fundraising activities. Our house charities for 2019/20 are:
