Beyond The Classroom
The Study prides itself on its provision of a fantastic range of opportunities, activities and clubs on offer to our girls above and beyond the classroom. Whether your daughter loves sport, enjoys the creative arts, is an aspiring theatre star or is interested in chess, debating, Latin or even ponies, The Study has a club for her to enjoy. The full list of extra-curricular clubs – ranging from sculpture and netball to creative dance and drama, illustrates the breadth of choice on offer. All clubs are led by enthusiastic teachers with a specialist interest in their subject, with the common aim to ensure that the girls are engaged, have fun working together and are learning new things.
The Study is a mutually supportive community, which includes the girls, their parents and the staff. Above all else, The Study has an atmosphere of warmth, openness and happiness where the girls feel secure, well looked after and highly valued through the emphasis we place on excellent pastoral care. We ensure, through excellent teaching, a kind and nurturing environment, and the encouragement of individual talents and interests, that every girl feels special and an important part of the whole.
The Study values our links with the local community and works with charities to ensure that the girls have an understanding of the world beyond the school gates. Many fundraising activities take place through the year, which ensure the girls work together for the sake of a worthy cause. Local initiatives have included working with Wimbledon Bookfest and the AELTC on special projects and competitions.
The academic year is also punctuated with fantastic trips to art galleries, museums, nature parks and wildlife centres in order to augment the girls’ interest and curiosity in their academic subjects. Two residential trips are also organised, one for the Year 4 group and one for the Year 6 girls, who have a huge amount of fun creating lasting memories on their adventures together.
