Prior’s Field has been offering girls a distinctive route to high achievement since 1902. The school has an extraordinary educational, literary and scientific heritage, bequeathed by its founder Julia Huxley (née Arnold). It’s a school where girls are encouraged to grasp the opportunities created for them – from designing and racing electric cars, debating at the Cambridge Union and exhibiting their art in national galleries, to setting up businesses in the Sixth Form.
Students are encouraged to involve themselves in the more than 40 extracurricular activities available, including climbing, photography, gymnastics, tennis, riding and music and drama.
24 subjects are offered at A-Level and excellent, value-added results enable girls to go on to a wide range of universities, including Oxbridge, to study courses as diverse as medicine, philosophy, fashion design, law and music.
