Prep School

In Prep School, in addition to your daughter’s sense of achievement in academic areas, she will have developed a real moral sense.

Through learning how to interact with each other and in looking at the wider world and everything that is happening there, Charlotte House girls have a real sense of what is right and wrong. Our girls understand the importance of things some schools may regards as old-fashioned such as good manners, kindness and helpfulness.

“Pupils’ personal development is excellent. The girls have a thorough understanding of right and wrong with clear beliefs in how they should treat others. They are confident and have high esteem.” ISI Inspection

Forms III – VI

At this stage in your daughter’s school career, she will be playing in matches against other schools, taking part in major dramatic (and musical) productions and be enjoying the majority of her lessons being taught by subject specialists.  Across the curriculum their horizons are broadening; there are so many opportunities for the girls to extend their studies, whether in Maths, Music, Drama or Science – or simply by joining one of the many extra-curricular activities.

From Form IV girls are prepared for entry into Senior School.  We discuss this process with parents very carefully in order to ensure that each girl goes to the school that is absolutely right for her. Each year we assist our leavers in finding a place at the school of their choice.  We achieve this through a combination of extensive academic preparation(which includes verbal and non-verbal reasoning); discussions with parents and our knowledge of local schools and their entrance requirements.  One thing is sure: no girl ever leaves this school without having achieved her full potential.

Charlotte House girls are a breed apart.  They leave us secure in the knowledge that they are their very best selves; of course they are sad to leave when the time comes but they are ready for the next stage of the education and excited at the prospect of the next challenge.

They are proud to have been part of such a wonderful school; and we are proud of them too.
