It became an all-girls school in 1968 and acquired academy status in 2012.
Values and vision
The Brentford School for Girls has a commitment to academic excellence and personal well-being. Success lies in the close and safe community that flourishes at the secondary school, and in the excellent relationships that exist between staff and students.
GCSE examination results consistently place the school as one of the highest achieving in both Hounslow and nationwide. A-level students achieve exceptionally well and many students in the sixth form are accepted into the best universities in the country, including Oxford and Cambridge.
Brentford girls are encouraged to be ambitious, think big and have high expectations of themselves. The school vision is to develop students into confident, ambitious, resilient young women.
“The school is a small, friendly and culturally diverse community. Every girl is known well; as one pupil said, ‘We are like a family.’ The school’s ethos that ‘every child counts’ permeates throughout the life of the school. Staff work hard to ensure that individual pupils make good academic progress, and that they are safe and well cared for.”
