Head's Welcome

Our Vision here at Sir William Perkins's School is to build confidence, integrity and excellence in a caring, innovative and happy community so that each pupil leaves having been given the best possible chance of achieving her full potential, taking with her sound values, a breadth of skills and knowledge, and ready to take on the world!
The aims of the School are:
  • To maintain high academic standards
  • To encourage the enjoyment of learning and good habits of work
  • To help each student:
    • to develop fully as an individual
    • to cultivate creative and practical skills
    • to gain the qualifications they need to embark on - to grow in confidence in their chosen career
    • to think independently
    • to be a responsible, unselfish member of the community.
Academic success is our priority but education should be about far more than just top grades. We believe in educating the whole person and equipping our students to make their mark on the world. We encourage them to get involved in the many co-curricular activities on offer, to take every opportunity to develop their interests and creativity, their interpersonal, teamwork and leadership skills, to be forward-thinking and to reach into the wider community.

Our latest inspection report said of our students: "Pupils demonstrate excellent social awareness and they grow up to be poised, confident and articulate young women."

The School has a Christian foundation and ethos which underpins the way it operates. However, we value the fact that the Sir William Perkins community is diverse and students of all faiths, or none, and their families are warmly welcomed.

The School is continually developing, with buildings and equipment updated and extended to meet the current needs.

We would be delighted to welcome you if you would like to come and visit us. Do get in touch!
