Palmers Green High School (PGHS) is an independent selective day school for girls aged 3 - 16 covering Pre-Preps, Preps, Juniors and Seniors. The Alice Nursery is our purpose-designed Pre-Prep school for 3-4 year old girls, most of whom transfer to Reception at PGHS. PGHS has been ranked No1 in The Sunday Times Parent Power league table for small schools for the last three years (2010, 2011 and 2012). All aspects of the school attained the top grading as outstanding / excellent in the most recent inspection report in November 2011. GCSE results are first rate with an average of 77% A* and A grades over the last three years with 100% A*-C.
At Palmers Green High School girls enjoy success in so many aspects of school life because everyone is known as an individual. Primary age pupils enjoy subject specialists teaching them in Art, Design & Technology, Drama, Music and PE - frequently in half class groups. At secondary level small class sizes (an average of only 12 at GCSE), excellent relationships with staff, and the school's commitment to highly effective teaching and learning strategies all help the girls to attain their personal goals and aspirations. A broad range of extra-curricular activities enriches the multi-cultural school community and educational visits feature regularly in the school calendar.
Our motto, 'By Love, Serve One Another' was carefully chosen by its founder Miss Alice Hum and epitomises the school's special ethos where individual talent is fostered and where contribution to the community is greatly valued.
PGHS provides a challenging and supportive environment where every girl has the chance to shine. In choosing our school parents can be confident that they have selected a first class education for their daughters.
