About Putney High School

Putney High School is one of the UK’s leading schools, with a reputation for providing the challenge of a rich and inspiring education for bright girls aged 4 – 18.

Our ethos is one of putting girls first, with academic excellence, wellbeing and opportunity at its heart.

We achieve this by:

  • Creating a warm and supportive community
  • Nurturing a love of learning
  • Promoting a can-do culture, where girls have fun and can take risks, secure in the knowledge they are supported
  • Inspiring a sense of ambition and adventure
  • Offering fabulous opportunity in Art, Design, Drama, Music and Sport.

Academic Excellence
Staff are passionate about their subjects, keen to nurture the same spirit of academic curiosity and intellectual enquiry in girls. Ours is a creative, innovative environment, where pupils are encouraged to take pleasure in discovery, through hands-on learning for example. All girls have their own iPads from Year 4 upwards.

Wellbeing
As important to us as academic excellence is the wellbeing of our community. We respect one another and recognise all girls are individuals, each making her own positive and valuable contribution. As important to us as academic excellence is the wellbeing of our community.
