Nonsuch High School for Girls and Wallington High School for Girls share many common characteristics and are held in high regard in the local community. Both schools are academically very strong, and deliver a broad, balanced and challenging curriculum setting high expectations. Students in both schools benefit from being taught by highly qualified, dedicated and committed staff who share their passion and knowledge of their subject.

All relationships in the Trust, whether they are between staff and students or between members of staff, are built on mutual trust and respect. These relationships drive school improvement and contribute to the emotional well-being of both staff and students alike.

We frequently receive comments from educational visitors to the Trust, students, parents and staff. Typical themes include; the high levels of motivation and positive behavior of the students, the commitment and professionalism of the staff and the high quality, well equipped school buildings.

The strong academic profile in each school is complemented by highly effective pastoral care to ensure that students are supported, guided and cared for during their time within the Trust. Alongside this, the development of student ‘soft skills’ is central to our ethos and girls are encouraged to develop their confidence, independence and resilience across a wide range of enrichment activities. Extra-curricular provision is first class and students enjoy excellent opportunities to develop through sport, music, drama, Duke of Edinburgh, Combined Cadet Force and a wide range of other activities.

Students achieve at the highest level at both GCSE and A level and almost all students go on to university once they leave school studying a wide range of different subjects. Significant numbers attend Oxford, Cambridge or Russell Group universities reflecting the academic profile of our students.

Both schools also enjoy the rich diversity of a multicultural community with over 70% of student across the Trust coming from minority ethnic groups. Parental engagement is high and is viewed as an essential part of the partnership between each school and family.
