nurturing curious minds

The Study is a creative school. From the way core academic subjects are taught to the very real emphasis we place on nurturing creative talent, our innovative approach to education is designed to encourage a natural curiosity and provide our girls with the best foundation for lifelong learning.

Academic excellence at The Study

A warm, open and happy space to learn

While we place a clear focus on academic achievement, we believe education means so much more than 11+ results. Through a nurturing environment we strive to ensure each and every girl gets the individual care they need to feel valued and to flourish. We champion the importance of emotional wellbeing, kindness, friendship and respect for others.

“The loving, nurturing and caring ethos in the school is something very special. We chose The Study because its warmth matched our daughter’s personality.”

Year 4 parent

“The Study has offered a wonderful school experience for both my daughters, who have flourished thanks to the school’s careful mix of encouragement and challenges.”

Year 6 parent

“The children here struck us as articulate, loved, personable, relaxed, comfortable with themselves and others and, above all, completely and superlatively themselves. And that, surely, is what real girl power is all about?”
