A non-denominational, academically selective, independent day school, for girls aged 7 to 18, aiming for excellence in the education and development of young women in the heart of the City of London.
Students enjoy a broad academic curriculum and a wide range of supporting activities, using London as a learning resource. The School was established by the Corporation of the City of London with money from a bequest from William Ward of Brixton to provide education for girls that “would correspond, as near as may be, to the City of London School”. The school opened in Carmelite Street in 1894 and moved to the present premises in the Barbican in 1969.
