Smallish central London school with an arts bias. It takes under 400 girls from 4 to 18. Academically it is quite respectable with 7% going to Oxbridge and a national ranking of 67. It has a sister school in Regents Park. It is right next to Sloane Square tube so handy from Chiswick and great for shopping. Fees are £2,535 per term - 1999.
How do you get in?
Their main intake is at 4 and 11. You take the London schools' consortium entrance exam. It might not surprise you to hear that the intake from state schools is low.
