Academic Ethos

“More greenhouse than hothouse”

Teaching at Hanford covers so much more than the National Curriculum. We are more greenhouse than hothouse looking to bring out the best in each individual girl. We offer an enlightened education which results in outstanding academic performance as evidenced by the many scholarships awarded by senior schools to Hanford girls each year.

Small classes and proven teaching methods mean that girls of all abilities do well at Hanford. In recent years all our children have passed Common Entrance into the schools of their choice.  Academic, art, all-rounder and music scholarships are regularly awarded.
