Head PhotoPipers Corner is an independent day school for girls aged 4 - 18. Set in 96 acres of beautiful Chiltern countryside, the school is 4 miles north of High Wycombe and 2 miles from Great Missenden.

At Pipers Corner all girls are supported and challenged to achieve their full potential. Our nurturing and encouraging environment enables the girls to grow into mature, confident and independent individuals.

Academically successful, our girls progress to further study at Oxbridge and other top universities or specialist dance, drama and music colleges. At GCSE in 2016 there was an increase in the number of the highest A* grades achieved compared with 2015, and almost three quarters of all results were at grades A*- B. Piper girls achieved a 100% pass rate at A Level, with 15% of girls achieving all A*/A grades. Two thirds of all results at A Level were at grades A*- B.

11+ Scholarships are available for entry into the Senior School in the following areas: Academic, Art, Drama, Music and PE. Means-tested Bursaries are available up to a maximum of 100% of day fees (including any Scholarship award). We also offer The Jessie Cross Award - an award for an all-rounder at 11+: This is a means tested bursary of up to 100% of fees, available to a deserving student currently educated in a maintained primary school and who shows promise in a number of areas. A range of Sixth Form Scholarships are available at 16+. Please contact us for further details.

In addition to providing a stimulating learning environment we also encourage the girls to cultivate any sporting or creative talents they have through a wide range of lunch-time and after school clubs and activities

Sport is popular at Pipers, from the 25-metre indoor swimming pool to the sports hall and outdoor pitches including an astro; we can accommodate a wide range of activities. Similarly, those with creative interests benefit from the use of dance, drama, textile, art, ceramics, design and technology studios, as well as a large music department.

Pipers Corner is committed to a programme of continual improvement. Following the opening of new facilities for our Sixth Form students in September 2015, our new Arts Centre, complete with 280 seat theatre and café, opened in September 2016, along with a brand new Library, situated at the very heart of the school.
