    What it’s like

    Founded in 1928. The main house dates from 1799 and has been greatly extended to provide modern facilities. It is situated amid beautiful, rural surroundings, 22 miles from London, in 45 acres of grounds amongst the Surrey hills. A Roman Catholic foundation, it welcomes other denominations. Classes are small and a broad curriculum provides an all-round education. Examination results are good. Each girl is encouraged to explore her own capabilities in her own way and to discover her own individual talents. Pupils are involved in a wide range of extra-curricular activities – music, drama, arts, textiles, public-speaking, debating, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, voluntary service, work experience and Young Enterprise. Facilities for sports and games include an indoor swimming pool, tennis courts, all-weather hockey pitch and a multi-purpose sports hall. The preparatory school, from which many pupils are drawn, is about 1_ miles away.
