Recognising the importance of developing well-rounded individuals, we offer an exciting programme of extra–curricular activities. PGHS takes every opportunity to nurture your daughter’s passions and develop her skills, providing over 80 clubs per week. Pupils enjoy visits to places of interest, participate in residential trips and enjoy a diverse range of visitors, from poets to politicians.
Understanding the value of health and fitness, we are committed to helping girls discover and develop their sporting talents. All girls are encouraged to be physically active, benefiting from specialist teaching in PE from Reception onwards. They take part in the Prep, Junior and Senior Sports Days and many have the opportunity to represent the school in the wide range of inter-school fixtures and competitions.
We develop every girl’s passion for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM), equipping them with skills that are much in demand in a modern economy. PGHS has excellent STEM facilities including a fully equipped Design & Technology room, a well-resourced ICT suite and dedicated Science labs. Pupils participate in exciting, hands-on projects and experiments and extend their knowledge through attending special events such as the London Schools Hydrogen Challenge and The Royal Institution Engineering Masterclasses.
Within and beyond the curriculum, girls are encouraged to use creativity to enhance their learning. Specialist teachers provide opportunities for pupils of all ages provide opportunities for girls to develop their artistic, musical and dramatic skills, including LAMDA. Pupils showcase their talents in a variety of concerts, assemblies, performances and art exhibitions. All pupils have access to the excellent facilities, including a brand new music suite.
