The Study offers a broad, creative and enhanced curriculum where every girl is encouraged to achieve her best, and the focus on the needs and strengths of every individual is key to the success of the school.
Games & The Arts
Although academic rigour is at the heart of the school, The Study is highly creative, with a reputation for excellence in music and the performing and visual arts, and has had Artsmark Gold status since 2009. The dynamic PE department ensures success at both regional and national level across athletics, hockey, cross country and netball and has a spacious off-site sports ground with multi-use pitches for training and matches.
Senior Exit Schools For The Last Academic Year
Day schools include Wimbledon, Putney and Surbiton High Schools, St Paul’s Girls’ School, The Lady Eleanor Holles, Epsom College, Marymount, Notre Dame and St John’s Leatherhead. Boarding schools include Benenden, Downe House, St Mary’s Ascot and Wycombe Abbey.
2019 was another strong year for scholarships, with 25 offered to the Year 6 girls, including academic, sport, art and music. This brings The Study’s total of scholarships achieved over the last three years to an impressive 99.
Head Teacher’s Philosophy
Mrs Pepper’s mission is to enable each individual to fulfil her potential in a supportive and happy environment. The girls enjoy a rich diversity of experiences, in and out of the classroom, and an understanding of important issues beyond the school gates.
The Study is a creative school, but not at the expense of academic rigour, as illustrated by its excellent results at 11+. The Study combines the warmth and sense of community of a traditional village school with the facilities and achievements of a leading preparatory. It has two beautiful sites adjacent to Wimbledon Common. The Wilberforce House site is to be redeveloped in 2019/2020 to create 6 new classrooms, a performing arts space, and a new library.
