The Board of Governors of The Study Preparatory School invite applications for the role of Head to succeed Mrs Susan Pepper in September 2020, who retires then after ten years of exemplary, dedicated service.
The Study Preparatory School is a leading London all-girls’ prep school, educating each year about 320 pupils aged 4 to 11. Located in leafy Wimbledon Village close to the Common, The Study is an innovative and forward-looking school with an atmosphere of warmth, openness and inclusivity where girls feel secure and highly valued through exceptional pastoral care. The Study is proudly non-selective at 4+, and this inclusive ethos permeates through the school where girls are respectful and considerate to one another. Through excellent teaching, a vibrant and stimulating learning environment, and the encouragement of individual talents and interests, The Study ensures that every girl feels special and an important part of the whole school.
The Study has two sites; Wilberforce House, for girls from Reception to Year 3, and Spencer House, for girls from Years 4 to 6, which was successfully refurbished in 2017. Committed to continuous improvement, The Study has now commenced the development of Wilberforce House, to modernise and enhance its facilities in order to provide the best possible educational environment for pupils. Fostering in its girls a very clear sense of community as well as self-confidence, The Study prepares them well for the challenges of senior school, one of many aspects praised in its recent outstanding ISI report. Study girls regularly receive scholarships to the leading secondary schools in London and further afield, with 39 awards last year alone.
The Governors of The Study now look to appoint a new Head with the ability to inspire the whole school community and successfully lead The Study through the next exciting phase of its development whilst nurturing the School’s distinctive ethos.
