Dates for your Diary:

New Intake Parents’ Evening - Monday 1st July 2019

This parents' evening will provide the opportunity to meet key staff, including new students' Form Tutor and Year Leader and the other girls who will be in the tutor group.  Parents will be given a range of information on how the school operates on a daily basis and arrangements for students' arrival in September.  A full itinerary of the evening will be provided in due course.

Students Taster Day - Wednesday 3rd July 2019

All the girls joining us in September are invited on this date for a taster day. It is an opportunity for our new students to really begin to feel like a member of our community as they attend some lessons, meet staff and receive important information needed for September.  Students should come dressed as they would normally for primary school.  They will need to bring pens, pencils and a pair of trainers; lunch will be provided. 

Students need to arrive at the school at 8.25am and will finish at 2.30pm when students can be collected from the playground or be dismissed at the school gate.

Parents and students will be given the opportunity to meet personally with a member of the Senior Leadership Team before the end of this academic year should you require it, so that any specific questions can be addressed.

Gym and Dance Evening - Thursday 20th June 2019

The school’s annual Gym and Dance evening will take place on Thursday 20th June.  Parents and students are very welcome to attend this event and enjoy an evening of dance and gymnastics displays performed by our extremely talented students.  If you would like to attend, please contact the school office (020 8647 8294) to express your interest.
