Life at the Senior School + Uniform

At Old Palace, we provide a first class academic education combined with a wealth of development opportunities for our students – both inside and outside of the classroom.

Small class sizes, well-qualified specialist teachers and excellent facilities ensure the very highest academic standards and educational provision at the school. Our latest ISI Inspection rated Preparatory and Seniors Excellent in all areas, whilst our 2020 GCSE and A Level results continue to place us as one of the leading academic girls schools in the area.

Update: From September 2021, Year 6 will be based at the Preparatory School.

If you talk to an Old Palace student, she will often speak of the privilege of being inspired every day by the beauty of our historic, Grade 1 listed buildings. This, together with our close, caring community, ensures our girls thrive, safe in the knowledge that they are valued, supported and intellectually challenged.

We want our students to be happy and confident and to know that there are no limits to their ambitions and dreams. Old Palace is there to help and encourage them…every step of the way!

When students leave Old Palace, they do so with outstanding academic credentials, a distinguished sense of social responsibility, emotional intelligence and the necessary skills to cope in the modern workplace. In summary, they are capable, confident and caring individuals with a sense of community.

School Uniform Shop: the school shop is based at Whitgift School.

School Shop

Update: During lockdown, the shop will be closed for personal visits from 5 November 2020 until further notice. Please order via phone or email and items will be delivered to Old Palace.
