It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our website.

We pride ourselves on providing girls and young women with an excellent quality of education as well as the opportunity to develop the broader skills required to be successful in a changing world. In February 2016, we received news that the Department for Education placed us in the national ‘Top 100 non selective state schools’ for the progress our students make, we were awarded a High Aspiration Pupil Premium Award in 2015 and invited to join the prestigious London Schools Gold Club, an accolade presented to the most successful London state schools. Our academic achievements are an admirable strength of the school
Our drive at Brentford is to nurture the young woman of our vision, a vision that we hope you will share. As well as academic excellence, your daughter will be encouraged to develop her wider social and personal skills. There are a variety of leadership opportunities, extra-curricular activities, foreign trips and community projects, which all students are encouraged to participate in.

Our most recent Ofsted report (February 2016 ) stated ‘ The school’s ethos that ‘every child counts’ permeates the life of the school.’ The progress of students at Brentford was identified as a  strength, as well as the behaviour and attitudes of the students. The strong leadership of the school and the highly skilled teachers contribute to the school being a very ‘Good’ school.

At Brentford School for Girls, our students are encouraged to be ambitious, ‘think big’ and have high expectations of themselves. Our vision is to develop your daughter into a confident, ambitious, resilient young woman, who is ready for life in the future, whatever that might look like!

At Brentford School for Girls we ensure that our new students have as smooth a transition from primary to secondary school. Applications are currently being made for September 2019.  Applications are welcome from both in and outside of the local authority. Students wishing to come to Brentford School for Girls must identify on the application form that they wish to be considered for a girls school. All applications must be made online via the child's local authority of residence.  You will receive notification of your application if it is successful in March 2019.

After this time we will be organising visits to your daughter’s primary school to find out as much information as possible about her, so that  her transition into Brentford will be stress free. There will be more information following in March 2019.

We work extensively with local primary schools and pupils from these schools will be visiting Brentford to complete a variety of projects. Please look out for further information about these schemes.

I hope that our website will give you a flavour of our school community and the many fantastic opportunities here at Brentford.
