Head PhotoFrancis Holland School, Regent’s Park, is a leading London independent day school for girls aged 11-18. Excellent academic results are achieved in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. FHS pupils are kind and clever and values are as important as grades in this selectively academic environment. Girls are encouraged to extend their intellectual curiosity and creativity, both in the classroom and through the lively extra-curricular schedule of over 70 weekly clubs covering everything from drama, arts, sport, science and music. Conventional clubs such as cookery, chess, debating, Amnesty International, equestrian club and junior science club dove-tail with more eclectic extra-curricular activities such as cheerleading club, mythical monsters club and globetrotters.
The Head and staff encourage girls to take the initiative and seize opportunities to explore new areas of learning or interest. Senior girls are encouraged to develop leadership skills in a plethora of activities and the Sixth Form weekly lecture programme attracts high-profile speakers. Staff provide constant support and are always prepared to go ‘the extra mile’, fostering a culture of mutual respect. Values are firmly rooted in the school’s Anglican foundation; an altruistic, well mannered atmosphere is tangible from the moment a visitor enters the school.
In 2014 FHS received its ‘best ever’ ISI School Inspection Report achieving the top classification of ‘excellent’ in all key areas of school life: quality of teaching; pupils’ achievement and learning; personal development and pastoral care; leadership and management and curricular and extra-curricular provision. In 2013 pupils achieved the school’s ‘best ever’ GCSE results with 81% of grades at A*-A.
FHS enables girls to thrive as individuals whilst appreciating the importance of courtesy and altruistic behaviour which we believe prepares them for life beyond FHS.
