The Curriculum

Tormead offers a broad, innovative and stretching curriculum throughout the Prep and Senior Schoolsdesigned not just to impart subject knowledge, but to develop creativity, curiosity and a love of learning.  

Games & the Arts

Tormead Sport provides a diverse range of options which are in tune with what our girls want to be involved in today, underpinned by a sport-for-all philosophy.  The Arts are supported by well-developed Music, Drama and Art Departments.  

Pastoral Care

A fundamental value at Tormead is treating everyone with respect and dignity. We provide a network of personal support through Heads of Year, Tutors and Mentors, as well as specialist pastoral staff, including a School Healthcare LeadPupil Support Officer and in-house Counsellor.  

Our pastoral care has been rated excellent by inspectors, by parents and most importantly, by our girls, who thrive in the supportive environment.
