The core purpose of academic life at PHC is to ensure all our girls, whatever their abilities, gain qualifications that exceed their own expectations.

Every girl is engaged in a programme of study specifically tailored to meet her unique needs. Alongside this, each girl has an academic and pastoral mentor who manages her progress.

Our academic programmes ensure girls push their own boundaries, gain self-belief, self confidence and the academic rigour to thrive. 

Our focus on the individual fosters a strong rapport between staff and student. This dynamic creates a genuinely fun learning environment that allows each girl to feel safe to make mistakes and learn from them.

We run additional programmes to ensure a ‘can do’ attitude towards learning, these include:

  • Supervised after-school prep
  • Accelerated Reader – an online programme to facilitate rapid reading growth
  • Scholars’ Programme
  • One to one extra tuition
  • Learning Support
