The Good Schools Guide

"Deservedly one of the top girls' schools in the country: it is exactly right for naturally confident, very bright young things who thrive on lots of work. Highly sought after for its academic delivery, celebration of female success, top of the range facilities and cream of the crop intake. Set to remain a 'destination' school."

"This is a school where academically superior girls learn not just willingly, but enthusiastically, and which gets an excellent balance between purposeful and happy, with plenty of skipping and laughing to be seen on any given day."

Tatler’s School Guide 2021

"With its sweeping drive, wrap-around grounds and warm welcome from Barney the enchanting in-house therapy dog, this London day could easily be mistaken for a rural boarding school. Spacious 24-acre grounds add to the pervading sense of ‘calm’, and a researcher marvelled at the studious atmosphere more akin to a university campus with ‘verdant grassy spaces’ and ‘hidden places to squirrel yourself away to study’. Being so immersed in nature it is not surprising that the dynamic eco-squad is leading the school to become carbon neutral by 2030.

The LEH facilities are ‘amazing’ and include the Sixth Form Centre with its popular café, the light and airy Gateway Building, where older pupils enjoy morning yoga, alongside robotics and ICT suites. There’s such a multitude of sporting amenities that everything happens in situ (bar rock climbing, rowing and squash). No wonder that their sporting achievements are stratospheric: they’re National Schools rowing champions; five alumnae represented England and Wales at 2019 World Lacrosse Championships; and pupils are competing at national swimming, karate, gymnastics, trampolining and athletics competitions. Stirling academics are a given, remaining consistently high with 91 per cent obtaining 9-7 at GCSE in 2019. An impressive 14 per cent of leavers won places at Oxbridge, 13 per cent received places at medical schools and 90 per cent went to Russell Group universities. LEH’s motto is that ‘hope favours the bold’ and, with these results, it’s clear that these girls are bursting with ambition and courage."
